American Cancer Society's New Way of Fighting Breast Cancer in Second Life

The American Cancer Society’s New “DIY Campaign” Model will Simplify Breast Cancer Fundraising in Second Life

The American Cancer Society in Second Life is known for always adapting to the changing needs in our virtual world. The latest evolution will change how we fight breast cancer in the Second Life. 

After several conversations with multiple volunteers and considering many options, the ACS leadership team is excited to announce a new “DIY campaign”  model that will offer opportunities for new and existing volunteers to support the ACS’s breast cancer mission by creating their own campaigns. 

The new model allows anyone to plan their own campaign, using existing American Cancer Society fundraising tools that are designated to fight breast cancer during the month of October. This is a great way for volunteers and advocates to think BIG! Within Second Life, there can be a multitude of major campaigns overlapping each other throughout the month of October, creating a movement across the grid where we attack breast cancer from every angle.

“Established events like Out Shop Cancer and the Making Strides Walk will continue and are examples of the types of fundraising campaigns that we hope to see more of, from various segments of the larger virtual universe,” says Stingray Raymaker, Sr. Consultant of Virtual Community Development. “We want every community in Second Life to feel like they can organize and lead their own campaign.”

Questions about Strides Campaigns or the American Cancer Society in Second Life can be directed to MamaP Alter, Trager Alter, or Nikki Mathieson.

GeekSpeak – what if we were the only life in the universe? Join the discusion July 13th at 12pm SLT

Let’s suppose we could somehow scientifically prove that there are no aliens in the rest of the universe?  Would we lose interest in space exploration?  Or would you try harder to explore the universe in order to establish new human colonies?

Would it be our duty to take life out into the galaxy?  Or would we see it as our duty to keep life on Earth forever?

What religious implications would such a discovery have?  Would we fly out into the galaxy to find out what we could learn?  Or stay here and keep safe?

What would you do? Go out and explore?  Or stay here and do the best you can?

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for new subjects.

The excitement was in the air on Sunday, as the 20 finalists of the LOOK of the YEAR competition met the 14 judges for the first time, during an elegant brunch at LUXE Paris and LUXE Dot Be.

Each finalist was invited on the stage to explain to the panel of judges why he or she would be a good ambassador for LUXE Paris Women Fashion or LUXE Dot Be Men Fashion.

''We are looking for two ambassadors, a woman and a man, who distinguish themselves by the quality of their look and a powerful style and who will represent our brands with grace''. explain the three designers behind this contest, Mika Palmyra and Parisian Skytower of LUXE Paris, and Boniefacio of LUXE Dot Be.

After the speeches, the LOOK of the YEAR official photographer, Jack Rock, captured the unique style and beauty of each of the finalists and then, it was shopping time! Each finalist was allowed to choose 10 outfits, no charge, at LUXE Paris or LUXE Dot Be. That was fun and a really good way to achieve this day, which was the first event of the LOOK of the YEAR finale.


This Sunday, the finalists will finally hit the runway and show the judges their modeling skills as they will present the Happy Sunny Afternoon show.

This show combines two challenges. To start, the finalists will model swimsuits especially created for them by LUXE Paris and LUXE Dot Be, in the colors of their RL country flag. For the second challenge, the finalists have been asked to interpret the Happy Sunny Afternoon theme, to express, with their clothes and styling, ''la joie de vivre'' under a beautiful sunshine.

The third and last challenge, Romance at the Ritz in Paris, will take place on July 21th as the grand finale. We will then know who will be the next LUXE Paris LOOK of the YEAR and the first LUXE Dot Be LOOK of the YEAR as it is the first time that the contest has a men category.


The new ambassadors will each win L$50,000 cash, one year of free shopping at LUXE Paris/LUXE Dot Be (a value of L$30 000), a fashion feature in the magazines ModeLS,  SL Confidencial, L'Amour Diversity and The Second Life Enquirer (a value of L$30 000),  a private dinner party for 20 at the Duplex Club (a value of L$5000), a scholarship at In-Nova Model Training (a value of L$4000), a gift card of L$3500 at ProPose, a gift card of L$3000 at Alma Makeup, a crown by Zuri Jewelry (a scepter for the man), a value of L$1500, an official picture by Jack Rock (a value of L$1000), an hour coaching with Ponchituti Boucher and a VIP invite to be part of AIM Modeling Agency.

The two runners up in each category will also share more than L$35,000 in prizes from the sponsors.

Staged and directed by Julia Brand, LUXE Paris COO, and presented at AIM brand new theater, the challenges-shows will unfortunately not be open to the public. The organization took this difficult decision in order to keep the lag as low as possible so finalists and judges can be at their best. However the LOOK of the YEAR grand finale will be broadcast live on YouTube! Keep an eye on The SL Enquirer to get the link to watch this thrilling event!

The Virtual World really does have something for everyone, and on the SecondLife grid, an intrepid explorer can easily find dozens of sims that cater to those with a penchant for Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism (BDSM).  Rarely, however, can you find one that caters to the BDSM aficionado with as much class and elegance as the newly renovated and relocated “Willuna BDSM Resort and Danafor Entertainment.” Here you will find a group that is focused on building a community of similarly minded individuals who like to enjoy themselves in SL in a drama free environment. For those looking for BDSM, they have a house filled with equipment of various natures and a teleport to a dungeon, if you feel like locking up your subs. For those who are just looking for somewhere to get away, they have an amazing day spa where you can come with a friend and be pampered for the day. Alternatively, you may want to enjoy a game or two. They offer a wide variety of games to play including a bowling alley. And, if you don’t see something you like, shoot a note to management and they will definitely look into it.

I recently spent an enjoyable evening in the company of the gracious and elegant Willow (misskeelin),  owner of Willuna. My visit started with an orientation tour of the grounds aboard the back of Willard,  the Great White Snow Owl, for a birds-eye view of the many delightful areas available to members and guests alike.  I asked Willow to describe “The Willuna Difference” to me. Without a moment’s hesitation, she responded, “Willuna is a classy fun adult sim for BDSM, romance, play, events, rentals, and games. It is made up of lovers, friends & a fun loving community.  I am an artist, author, lover, Mistress, teacher, mentor, and student. I am sick of trying to please the world, sick of sleazy men, disrespectful people, game playing bitchy little girls, I buy what I want - never beg. Gloves are now off, Willow is worth knowing & Willuna is a great place to spend time – a beautiful place for beautiful decent people.  :-)”

Josh (thomas1.bellic): So, can you tell me something of the history of Willuna?   I know you just opened, but what motivated you to open a BDSM sim?

Willow (misskeelin): Certainly.  We opened the original House of Willuna in June 2018.  It was a Femdom and I wanted to see more real BDSM with the same values and culture as RL (I have been a RL Mistress for just over 18 years)   I didn’t like how it was going in sl - so that was why we decided we needed to change. We had a lovely sim homestead, but with only 5000 prims and we could only have 20 people.  We decided to move after our 1st anniversary. 

Willuna, though fundamentally a Femdom, opened it doors up to the broader community.  On the 1st of July, we had our Grand Opening here and had a wonderful “Game of Thrones” event. We wanted this sim to be a great community for like minded people to come and make it a place where they could just hang out or play games or dance or shop etc .  We have a great resort with lots of great animated pieces, a forest for romance of rlv and a great dungeon and an education area. We have just added a beautiful pet park for those with that kink. We have a real celebrant and can perform marriages, partnership, collarings etc.

Let us know your birthday  or rez day or special holiday  - we have a box full of party gear to make it a very special day for you or to surprise a loved one. We love having the opportunity to support members with their events and their business endeavors.

JB – You have certainly put the expanded parcels to good use, haven’t you?

W:  The new sim is amazing! What a difference having enough prims makes!  All feedback we have received is the same - "it is amazing"! We have the most wonderful friends, some we now call family.  We have continually made changes to suit our members. We have always demanded respect of others & tried not to take ourselves too seriously.  We love to support & make Willuna a great and fun place to be. Our members love our weekly events and our holiday events. We provide help with profiles, BDSM, ceremonies & general support.  We have rentals & incredible playrooms, romance suites & areas to take amazing picks. We have a theatre & restaurant, shops, & an extensive games area. But we do have limits.  

JB:  So then, Willow.  Tell me about the sorts of events you host here.

W:  Each week we get a great turnout at Club XPlosion either downstairs in our very modern club or upstairs in & around the pool. Every event our DJ Tommi plays the most wonderful 80's music & is great at playing any request. Hostess  Willow & Tommi make it so much fun. We have weekly themes, including get your leather on or your long ballgowns or bikini's. There is always a chance to win some nice money in our competitions. Australia Day, Valentines Day, St.Patricks Day, Easter, 4th July, Thanksgiving, Christmas. We celebrate all major holidays as well as our members birthdays , rez days, weddings, anniversaries, collarings.  If you have a special day & want to celebrate see myself, Neph or any staff person. Join the group, get regular im's & notices about our upcoming events. 

Every afternoon from about 2pm till 5pm slt Willow, Darius & friends are at the Landing Point discussion circle.  This has been a great time to discuss issues, introduce new members, give tours & work on coming events etc. We have had more & more couples taking advantage of the great places to have a beautiful date. We are much more than dungeons.  There is a romance suite, dancing, waterfalls, beach, romantic dining & seats in the sunset. Have that special occasion coming up, proposal, wedding, or collaring etc ask our staff how we can help you. We have a RL celebrant with years of RL  & SL experience. Willuna is not about money or gifts. It is about people & experiences. It is friendly with some amazing people. We are all so proud of Willuna & continually work to make it the best it can be. Come to sim for a Willuna News & Calendar of Coming Events. Come & play games, explore, romance, bdsm, chat etc  

JB:  This sounds like an amazingly “open” environment. Do you have any restrictions you place on activities here? 

W:  Absolutely.  We strive to have fun with no drama. Willuna is made up of incredible people who we now call family or friends.  Sorry, but we allow NO animals, children, skat, no scamming by way of wishlists, NO findomming, no babygirls or escorts. Bitches, arseholes & trouble makers, and incest plays are banned.

JB:  Anything else you would like to share with our many SL Enquirer readers?

W: On behalf of Myself, Darius, Tommi & staff  I want to thank everyone who has helped make Willuna the wonderful sim that it is. Call in or IM for an updated Calendar of Events or come & have a tour of our delightful, drama-free sim.

So there ya have it Folks. Willuna BDSM Resort & Danafor Entertainment Resort is THE place to be if you you’re looking for a classy place to visit or entertain friends in a drama-free environment.  Open now for your fun and fantasy fulfillment. 

Be there!  Aloha!

Staying Entertained While Traveling – A Guide for the Disabled

Not all disabilities are apparent to others, but for each person living with a disability, the experience is totally personal and unexplainable to the able-bodied. What this means is that you might not be able to tell that someone is visually impaired just by looking at them, but for the actual person with the disability, even they are going to have different experiences depending on where they are and who they are with. 
Taking the same route home every day helps the disabled to become comfortable and familiar with the area. By contrast, traveling comes with its own level of excitement and challenges. Whether you travel all the time or only on rare occasion, you need to learn how the disabled are traveling in style in 2019.

Taking What You Need to Stay Entertained 

By car, plane, bus, or train, people travel near and far, for business and for pleasure. As long as you won’t be operating a vehicle yourself, you will have a lot of time on your hands for fun and entertainment. Naturally, gaming fans need only a laptop, power source, and a stable internet connection. Portable charging stations as well as portable modems are suggested if you are going to be on a train or in a car. 
When it comes to flying, you have to consider what you can fit in your carry-on luggage. If you have any sort of equipment that you will have to take during your travels to accommodate your disability, then you will also have to account for the amount of room all of your belongings will take up. Your Wi-Fi connection might also be more stable if you are traveling by airplane, but also note that you won’t have internet access for the entire flight. Some bus companies also offer a Wi-Fi service and many have electrical outlets onboard, so this might be the preferred method of travel if you are intending on playing games.  

Making Travel Arrangements and Requesting Accommodations 

Whether you are going to have to go through security checkpoints at the airport, require special services for the hard of hearing, or need to bring a service dog onboard the train you will be traveling on, it is always best to make accommodations in advance. As a disabled person, you are federally protected and you cannot be discriminated against. The fact of the matter is that traveling can be a hassle. During the winter holidays, airports are packed and flights are regularly cancelled because of poor weather conditions. During the summer, you may not be able to find a car rental agency for miles with any availability. If you want the majority of your travel time to be dedicated to Second Life, then you should have all travel arrangements, special requests, and accommodations made several weeks beforehand. 

Preparing a Fallback Plan

You might have everything planned out and believe that you will be able to spend hours enjoying Second Life, but the fact remains that travel is a fickle beast. This is why a patient advocate can be the key to staying entertained while you travel. Patient advocates help to work the kinks out of any situation, including on flights and during international travels. You might also want to look at other forms of travel as a backup.

When you know that you are going to have lots of time available to really get into your Second Life character, you want to be disturbed as little as possible. This might be one of the biggest reasons why people seem to keep to themselves while they are on long flights or car trips. And for the disabled, a few extra plans might need to be made, but staying entertained during travel is also a great possibility.

GeekSpeak – will humans have extra senses in the future? Join the discussion Saturday 6th July at 12pm SLT

Are we approaching a transhumanist future where we will have new senses?  Given DNA modification and technology, will we sense radiation, UV light, magnetic fields, the gravity of the moon?  Will our ordinary senses be enhanced so that we can navigate by means of sonar, slow down time so we can hear the songs of birds, smell as well as dogs?

A connection with AI will give us extra information.  At what point does the extra information become a true new sense?  Will we begin to be able to sense houses for sale, or sense how old our food is or sense if it is going to rain in a few seconds?

Do we need new senses? Do we want them?  What are the drawbacks? What will happen to the people who do not have the new senses? Will they be the ones that survive after sensemageddon?  Come and discuss your future self!

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for future subjects.

Club Amore

Tuesday, July 2, 2019


“I've been in the Navy all me bloomin' life, sir.
Me mother was a mermaid, me father was King Neptune.
I was born on the crest of a wave and rocked in the cradle of the deep.
Seaweed and barnacles are me clothes.
Every tooth in me head is a marlinspike; the hair on me head is hemp.
Every bone in me body is a spar, and when I spits, I spits tar!
I’se hard, I is, I am, I are!”

*And thus began my interview with Rear Admiral (Upper Half) Izzy Harcassle, Commander of the Second Life’s US Navy Second Fleet, homeported at  Naval Base Jeogeot Point. Along with his wife, Rear Admiral (Lower Half) Daniella Harcassle, Chief of 2nd Fleet Personnel, they have created one of the most amazing RP Sims on the entire Grid.

SL is a land bounded only by the creativity of its residents, and some of those residents create elaborate  Role Playing (RP) scenarios. One such group is the US Navy SecondLife.

Josh Bellic (JB):  Good Afternoon, Admiral.  Thank you for agreeing to meet with me today and share with our readers some of the wonders of the US Navy in Second Life. Please tell us how you came to be involved with US Navy SL?

 Admiral Harcassle (AH) : When I joined SL, I had no idea that there was a military roleplay community in-world. Forming this group, and watching it grow from its birth in 2013, is my way of continuing to serve. We have members who were in the RL service, and others who were not.  Our membership fluctuates depending on season, but we have a good core. We also collaborate with other Navy groups on SL like US 7th Fleet, who are a Vietnam War-era simulation. Currently, our basic training program at Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) Nautilus provides basic training to three Navy groups.  The 2nd Fleet trains enlisted recruits through Recruit Training Command (RTC) and qualified officer candidates through Officer Candidate School (OCS). Then we send them back to their fleets for duty.

JB: Excellent!  And how long are each of those courses?

AH:  Right now, recruit training is one week long, and officer school is four weeks long. One of the reasons training takes long is because we owe it to the RL Navy to be authentic. This means teaching civilians the basics of military customs and courtesies. Each prospective member needs to learn the basics of being a sailor.  This includes how to wear a uniform, when to salute and who to salute, and how to address their shipmates by name and rate.

JB: Something the RL Navy calls “Sailorization” is very much a part of your program then? 

AH: Yes it is, very much so. Because if you're not gonna try to be real, what's the point of wearing the uniform?  All I ask in return is that members *try*. Make an effort to be a part of the group. In return we provide everything they need.

JB:  So then, Admiral, what are the stated objectives of your group?

AH:  As you know, the United States Navy is all about maintaining a presence at sea.  On SL, this is primarily accomplished through surface warfare operations on both the Blake Sea and Jeogeot Gulf.
Furthermore, we have an extensive aviation program for prospective pilots, in addition to search and rescue. But I believe what we really strive for is the culture and experience of being in the military in general. This means living on base, interacting with your shipmates, in addition to your family.

JB: That is a very worthwhile goal, Admiral.

AH: We try! It's not always successful lol. Many people would rather just blow stuff up.

JB: Wellllllll...that can be fun too, can’t it?

AH: If you're looking for a group that's strictly about combat, then we may not be the group for you. We're not in the business of lying to people just to increase our numbers. We are more than happy to point you in the direction of one of the many combat groups in the SL Military community. 

AH:  Additionally, we hold many events for our members like balls and dances, movie nights, and memorial events on special occasions.  It's a part of my RL that I miss, so I try to share that experience with our members.

So there you have it, Folks.  If you were ever In the Navy, or if you wanted to get a taste of what life in the Navy might be like, information is available at the first URL below
