A MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE TO FALLEN HEROS – JOSH (THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING


The United States Navy has been a force to be reckoned with for nearly a quarter of a millennia.  Today’s Navy operates on Land, Sea and in the air.   And now, even cyberspace enjoys a Naval presence, with the addition of Ships, Aircraft Squadrons, Submarines and Training Commands in SecondLife.


Last week I had the very real pleasure of observing a Memorial Day observation onboard the SL NAS Patuxent River.  This has become an annual tradition here, where residents are asked to pause and take time to recognize the brave men and women how have given their lives in defense of the United States and peace-loving peoples everywhere.


The base was packed when I arrived, and there were so many people in attendance I was initially denied entry.  After flashing my Press Pass, I was eventually allowed onto the base and made my way to the ceremony.  I arrived just in time to hear Captain Asra Kron addressing the solemn crowd.


“Today is Memorial Day, a day to remember those who must never be forgotten. The men and women who laid down their lives in service to us all.  No matter the cause, no matter the reason, it is not a soldier, sailor or airman's place to question why, but his or her duty to do or die. Today we honor the dead heroes. Today we cherish the ones who survived. Today we show our gratitude to those who serve.  In this sacred site's tradition we do all these things by saying out loud the name of the twenty one Blue Angels who lost their lives while in service with the demonstration squadron in real life.”
In the minutes that followed, Taps was played as each of the 21 names was read.  


Following “TAPS”, the ceremony heard a rendition of Amazing Grace, and a memorial poem read by  Coast Guardsman and Poet,  Sachin De Saltu.  


Following the ceremony, I caught up with CAPT. Asra "Cougar" Kron, and she graciously consented to an interview.





Josh Bellic (JB):  Tell me Captain.  How long have you been hosting these Memorial Day Observations?


Asra Kron (AK) - I have been in SL since 2006, not as Asra Kron, obviously, although now I am all there is (yes I broke out the booze and I am still having a ball, my former self has been shelved since I was "re-born" in 2013). Whenever I can, since I can remember, I attend the Memorial Day ceremonies in SL. As a SL Naval officer it has been my privilege to host Memorial Day remembrances at Third Fleet locations in 2018 (see http://nasmiramar.blogspot.com/2018/05/memorial-day-ceremony-nas-miramar.html) and this year, 2020.



JB:  Do you put these together yourself, or do you have a Staff who assist?


AK:  Usually all by myself, I don't have a "staff" for that (God how I envy you at SLE!), although my fellow officers and enlisted do participate and sometimes throw a (welcomed) helping hand.




JB:  How did you first come to be connected with SL Navy?


AK:  I love the ocean and I have been in love with aviation since I was a kid in real life. Put the two together and you read "Naval Aviator". I first started a very small Search and Rescue operating from the marina where I kept my sail boats, back in 2011 and that led to an encounter with the greatest Master Chief I will ever meet, then MCPO Margot Fenring, of the Seychelles Isles Coast Guard. I was hooked and joined with the rate of Petty Officer 3rd class (yes I am a "mustang" and very proud of it - it was also where I earned my call sign: "Cougar" - don't ask...). The next step for me was a transfer to the United States Navy in Second Life (do not confuse with SL United States Navy) in 2014, which I did maintaining my rank of Ensign at the time, flying with VF-101 Grim Reapers aboard the sorely missed CVN-68 USS Nimitz and Carrier Strike Group 11. The rest is history.


JB:  Who is Sachin De Saltu? He is certainly an interesting Character?


AK:  Oh my God, he certainly is! And believe me I have never met that young man before! I later confirmed with his superiors and he is indeed a recruit in the Second Life Coast Guard. You probably noticed Sachin's line during General Harrison's speech. At several points during the ceremony, this young Second Life Coast Guard recruit was announcing he "had a poem". Due to the strictly timed ceremony layout I could not include this impromptu participation, but as I said good bye to all and they were getting ready to leave, recruit Sachin De Saltu spoke up once more. I smiled and called him to the podium and everyone stood still. And listened. It was a very moving moment and a perfect serendipity to close the event.





JB:  Anything else you would like to tell our readers?


AK:  I would like to invite them all to get to know us better and find out about our almost 5 years of history browsing through SL USN Third Fleet official weblog at http://nasmiramar.blogspot.com/ and through our recently reactivated SL USN Third Fleet magazine NEPTUNE at https://thirdfleetneptune.blogspot.com/ - lots to see and do! And finally, I would like to thank the SLE for attending our Memorial Day ceremony and inviting me to tell you a little more about it and the SL United States Navy Third Fleet.

GeekSpeak – Will all languages disappear? Join the discussion Saturday May 30th at 12pm SLT


There are about 7000 languages left on Earth and the number is declining quickly. Will there be only one language in the future?  Will the world be better off with just one because that will mean that we all understand each other better?  Or will we lose more than we gain, when so much poetry, so many jokes and so much of our culture has gone?
Will we need language at all in the future?  Do the Borg need language?
Which of the current languages will survive for 10 years?  Or 50 years?  Or 500? 
When aliens land on Earth what language will we use to greet them?  Will it be a language that is not invented yet?  Maybe an artificial language?

Come and talk about it in GeekSpeak.  In English.  😊 Bring a friend.

Celebrities that love casinos


Celebrities that love casinos 
It certainly isn’t untrue to say that the amount of people that love going to the casino directly correlates with how wealthy they are, because it is inherently more fun to gamble when you know your bankroll is fairly unlimited. Why do you think casinos these days are so decadent anyway? Of course, it’s the rich members of society that end up gambling to play Fluffy Favourites at Wizard Slots
And who are some of the de facto richest people in society? Why, it’s celebrities, of course, a group of people that are proven to absolutely love gambling in casinos. You cannot blame them either – if we had as much money as some of the people we are going to mention in this article we would be gambling 24/7! Here are a few celebrities that love casinos:

Ben Affleck 

Ben Affleck has been a Hollywood hotshot for several decades now, appearing in seminal films such as Good Will Hunting and the more recent Gone Girl. It, therefore, follows that he has a lot of cultural capital, as well as a personal fortune well into the millions. It is no surprise that he is a massive lover of gambling, something that winnings he has made over his career will testify too. 
Ben Affleck has proved himself to be a masterful gambler on many occasions, winning quite a few poker and blackjack jackpots in his time. The great thing about this actor is that he regularly donates all of his winnings to casino staff and charities – what a great guy! 

Pamela Anderson 

The blonde bombshell Pamela Anderson rose to fame due to the iconic TV series Baywatch, something that subsequently allowed her to gamble away to her heart's content. Just like many of us she has been seen to play slots in Las Vegas quite extensively, which is funny because there are more than a few Baywatch themed slot games available in the city. 
This means she may well have encountered herself on a video slot screen, an icon that was almost definitely of high value! Not every day you get a slot payout from yourself, is it… 

Charlie Sheen 

Charlie Sheen has struggled with gambling and alcohol addictions for his whole life and is therefore somewhat of a casino expert. The Two And A Half Men star has long been known to enjoy gambling in casinos, and it isn’t really surprising when you consider his reported salary of more than 2 million dollars per episode. 
Unfortunately for Charlie Sheen a lot of the money he spent in casinos he never got back, as he had a reputation for some pretty daring (and stupid) bets. 

Derren Brown 


If you had the powers of mind-reading, illusion, and persuasion that Derren Brown had surely you would love gambling? It turns out he does, however unlike other celebrities, Derren Brown is in it out of sheer curiosity for the world of mathematics and probability, not really the search for more cash. 

Online slot myths how and why they first appeared


Everyone who plays free online slots wants to win, and if they are truly serious about it, they might well have searched online about how to do it. This is where the problems start. Although there are some useful tips online about how to play slot games (although not necessarily how to win since they are a game of chance) there is even more information that is simply not true – myths easily grow up around online slots, and it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. 
Here are some of the biggest online myths, where they came from, and what the truth is – if there is any truth at all. 
The More You Bet The More Chance You Have Of Winning
On most online slot games there will be a button that says ‘max bet’ or something similar to this. It can be tempting to press that button and have one big roll of the virtual dice because, after all, isn’t it true that the more you bet the more chance you have of winning? So if you bet the maximum you can on each spin you’re sure to come away with a profit? 
Unfortunately, this is not true. It would be wonderful if it was because everyone would win a lot of money every time they hit the button, but the truth is that the only thing pressing max bet is sure to do is reduce your bank balance. It won’t give you an extra edge, and you won’t be able to play as long as you’ll run out of money much more quickly. 
Avoid Slots That Have Recently Paid Out
One of the myths that have been circulating for decades now, not just relating to online slots but to all slots in general, is the one that states that if a machine or game has just paid out it should be avoided for a while because it’s not going to pay out again. 
It makes sense that this myth has prevailed. After all, in logical terms when you think about how likely a game is to pay out, those that haven’t given out any winnings for a while look like the best bet (literally); they must be due a payout any time now. 
That’s not how slots work, though, so it makes no difference whether a game has paid out recently or not – they all have the same chance of giving you a win. Each spin is entirely random, so there’s no way the machine can ‘know’ that it’s time to give a win or take a loss. So go ahead and play your favourite games even if someone has just won big on it; you could too. 
You Can’t Improve Your Chances Of Winning
At the opposite end of things from the previous myths, some believe that there is nothing at all you can do to improve your chances of winning when you’re playing online slots. That’s because, as mentioned above, all online slot games (and physical slot machines, come to that) are completely randomized. So how can you have a better chance of winning? 
The truth is you can improve your chances, although you can never guarantee a win at any time. Take a look at the RTP (return to player) percentage of each game and you’ll see that some have higher RTPs than others. If you want to improve your chances of winning, playing a slot that has a high RTP compared to others will help you. 
Often, the slots with the highest RTPs are the ones with the lowest jackpots, but don’t let that put you off. A win is a win, even if it’s not up there in the tens or hundreds of thousands like some games can offer. 
The Time Of Day Makes A Difference
Some players will categorically state that it is better to play slots at night time, in the morning, at lunchtime, on Wednesdays, at the start of the month, at the end of the month, and so on… they will believe this to be true, and they’ll play at those times. They’ll think that the casinos have created machines that work better at this time rather than that time, or maybe they’ll simply be superstitious about which games they’ve always been more successful on at specific times. 
In reality, there is no ‘good time’ to play a slot game, nor is there a ‘bad time’ to play. There is just any time you want – online slots are available 24/7, so if you fancy a game you can go online and play, and it won’t make any difference to your ability to win or your chances of losing if you play first thing in the morning, the last thing at night, or on a day that ends in a Y. The games cannot be programmed to change their RTPs at specific times or on certain days; they just won’t work like that. 
There Are Tight and Loose Slots
A story has been making the rounds for a good long time now, and it tells players that some machines are ‘loose’ and some are ‘tight’. That is, some pay out more than others, even if the games are exactly the same. This started with the physical slots, where the myth would spring up that one machine, in particular, was looser or tighter than the others in the room or row. 
When online slots came about, the myth kept going, suggesting that some games were easier to win than others. The truth is that there are so many restrictions and watchdogs involved in the gambling industry that it would be impossible to deliberately make it harder to win on some games than others. If it was true, the gambling industry would be in serious trouble, and many casinos would lose a lot of business. In the end, the RTPs are all published so you can check them out and make your determination yourself.

STEELE POINTE: ADVANCING THE CULTURE OF SECONDLIFE – JOSH(THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING.


A mere decade and a half ago, SecondLife was born, destined to become THE standard by which hundreds of other virtual worlds are measured. Unfortunately, some Sims and Regions have captured the imagination…only to be here one day, and gone the next,  as ethereal as the pixels they are made of.  Who among us hasn’t mourned the passing of some of our favorite venues…Toby’s House of Blues, Greenies, Wild Coast, or the Franks Entertainment Group?   Some of these places experience a rebirth, like the New Franks.   But for every amazing sim that disappears forever, another Sim, more amazing, more beautiful, and even MORE entertaining, rises to take its place.  And That, my friends, is the subject of today’s Feature.  The brainchild of veteran Sim builder, Petra Steele,  “Steele's Pointe” is the epitome of all that is good on the Grid today.   I managed to catch up to Petra as she was putting the finishing touches on her sim in preparation for their Grand Opening May 30 and 31, 2020, and she was kind enough to take a few minutes to show me around.





Josh Bellic (JB): So, tell me Petra. Just what is it that makes Steele's Pointe unique in SecondLife, a land with thousands of other sims?  What is it you are trying to do here?

Petra Steele (PS): Good question, Josh.  We feel strongly that work must proceed from a clear and intentional mission. and we put our hearts, talents and energies into fulfilling ours.  When I considered this question of "What is our mission?"  The words that immediately came to mind were: Art, Romance, Laughter.  We believe these three elements are essential in evoking joy.  We very much want to be able to contribute to the ever-emerging culture of SL, as well as, offer our own contribution by establishing three venues which represent each of the three elements of joy listed above.



JB: OK. Let’s take a look at these one at a time.  How do you plan to address “Art” at Steeles Pointe?

PS: We’re excited to say we’re reopening “PETRA's ~ A Live Music Venue”.  It is housed in a large open-air pavilion spiced with a Middle Eastern themed decor.  Colorful, comfortable seating areas flank the large dance floor and an elevated stage/performance area.  While the club casts an aura of elegance, the atmosphere is relaxed, warm and inviting which allows both our artists and our guests to have an intimate, interactive experience.  The hosts of PETRA's are gracious and skilled, never failing to make each guest welcome.  You will recognize them in their black or white harem girl gowns.  We like to craft our lineups so that we can present many hours of nonstop live music, a kind of smaller version of a music festival.  We try to do our best to encourage your desire to stay and enjoy even more. Check out our Grand Opening Schedule below






JB:  Excellent.  And the Romance?  How will you approach this important element of your mission statement?

PS:  With, among other things, The Pointe Ballroom.  This venue is the absolute jewel in our crown.  A three chambered build, the interior of which is buttressed by towering trees with winding, tangled branches with many sizes and intensities of hanging lights.

The atmosphere is at once romantic and ethereal.  The interior decor has a pallet of gold and platinum metallic and white textures. Brass and silver planters holding large white blossoms of baby's breath festoon the perimeters while towering mirrors and candelabrum lend an air of stateliness and times past.  The Ballroom features live singers and DJs.  Attire is semi-formal and currently the Ballroom presents programing on Tuesdays. 



JB:  And finally, Laughter.  I have generally found SL to be a fun place, but not really a place known for outright Laughter. How do you plan to address tis on your Sim? 



PS:  With a Comedy Club, of course.  We have named it The Knock Knock Room!

This little comedy club has big goals, namely, to increase the presence of live comedy establishments in SL.  The club will offer open mic standup comedy and Improv. Coming from a performing arts background myself, I will be performing an original standup routine.  We are eager to have many more comedians and comediennes perform at The Knock Knock Room and encourage you to give either Open Mic or Improv a try.  I will also offer workshops on Improv, something I’ve done for several years on other sims.  The club itself is small and intimate. Choose your seat, either a black and white Jester’s chairs, or the innovative audience reaction chair equipped with sounds and gestures to let the performer know how you feel.



JB:  Those are some amazing chairs, Petra.  I tried one the other day, and it  actually let me applaud, roar with laughter, hoot, and any of about a dozen reactions I might have at a RL Comedy club.  So, that addresses the “Big Three”.  What else can guests look forward to at Steele Pointe?



PS:  Lots of things, Josh.  Our landing point is on the path between Petra's and the large fountain with wild horses.  Stands of beech, oak and maple trees and winding stone paths lead to our various venues but are also equipped with many areas for photo ops, cuddling, or just spending calm happy moments alone. You will see many statues in this area as well as around the Ballroom.  Two of them represent gods of Olympus, Mars and Psyche. There are tango sculptures and a man being pulled by his hot air balloon (located just above the ballroom's central chamber.



Behind the beach and boardwalk, you will find two amusement rides.  The Carousel is a bit on the kinky side to ride at your own risk. The Ferris Wheel also has it own set of surprises. Click on one gondola and have a seat giving you a great view of the entire sim.  Click on another and find yourself holding on for dear life hanging off the back of the gondola, your poor legs kicking frantically in the air. 



JB:   Anything else we should look for?


PS:  Near the residential area and across from the fountain is the Diva Stone Memorial Support Center, designed for individuals whose relations are mostly limited to online contact.  The internet relationship is still little understood.  Those who have not experienced one tend to look down on it as not quite real, and clinical support services for such couples is limited to nonexistent. The Center offers: lectures which refer to research on the subject of online relations; small group meetings and couples consultation. While I am a licensed psychoanalyst I am retired and no longer do clinical work. This is important to note as NO manner of therapy or analysis will be offered or given.  Our services are supportive in method and intent.



There is a Portrait Studio where you can have your profile photo taken or a shot with your loved one or friend.  We also have 2 Ye OIde Gacha Resale Shops, just across the path from the portrait studio. One shop offers apparel, the other home decor and miscellaneous pieces, many rare and uncommon.  All economically priced.  What could be better than coming to hear one of our great performers and get your Christmas shopping done early


Here you go, Folks.  This will be the opening to beat all openings,  Steele’s Pointe, May 30 and 31.

Be there!  Aloha! – JB

GeekSpeak – Is the future vegetarian? Join the discussion Saturday May 23rd at 12pm SLT




In time will we all become vegetarian?  Or vegan? 

What are the advantages of being a vegetarian?  It might be the best way to fight global warming.  Less animal protein is good for our health.  We could put an end to the cruelty involved in farming animals. 

On the other hand, being vegan might be unhealthy.  And most people really enjoy eating meat. 90% of Indians are vegetarian.  Could Westerners live that way?  How would we start?  By eating eggs, cheese, fish but not meat?  Could we eat insects?  Or shellfish?  Or meat grown from animal cells in vats?

If we must eat veggies only should we bring back all the old forgotten plants we used to eat?
Or do you think we will always eat animals?
Come and learn about the new food chain, where humans are no longer on top.  Bring your friends.  And a carrot.

Finally, as being selected from hundreds of candidates is an accomplishment the finalists will want to remember for a long time, Stavros Hexem will make an official portrait of each of the great twelve. Stavros will also capture all the important moments of the competition
so that we can convey this exciting adventure on the pages of our media sponsors.
