Plato's Academy features discussions of philosophical Subjects for Second Life Residents Ramon Federal Reporting...




Plato’s Academy provides a “down-to-earth” venue for the consideration of serious issues
Plato Greybeard and Violette McMinnar have created a site and a group called Plato’s Academy that provide Second Life residents with an unequaled opportunity for down-to-earth discussion of important philosophical subjects. You can find it at:


The group meets every other Sunday at 8 am SLT. The next meeting of the group will be on Sunday, May 29, 2011. The question to be discussed at that time will be “Equality: Fact or Fiction?”
The idea for the site and group came from Plato Greybeard, who joined Second Life about two-and-a-half years ago and decided that he wanted to create a place for the serious consideration of important issues from a philosophical perspective.
He told the SL Enquirer in an interview at his site that he was lucky to find Violette McMinnar, who was “totally important” in building the sim that houses the group and in doing the important and time-consuming administrative work that is essential to the smooth operation of the discussion group on an on-going basis.
Violette added that she is motivated to support the group because she “likes to hear others’ views.”
Previously-featured discussion topics have included “Mechanisms of Offensiveness,” “Limits of Free Will,” and “What is Truth?”

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: Artists and Authors Gather To Raise Awareness May 25th – International Missing Children Day


Every day, every year children become victims of crimes at the hands of those who should be caring for them, at the hands of strangers, or in the midst of fleeing from one perceived evil they stray into the hands of another that injures them, or even may cause their death.  International Missing Children’s Day is a worldwide annual event to raise awareness and provide information on these issues as well as to provide links for further information and help. International Missing Children's Day is celebrated on May 25, the same day as the United States' National Missing Children's Day designated by Ronald Reagan in 1983.

On May 25th, artists, musicians, and authors will gather in in Second Life® at the Garden for Change to commemorate this day in the virtual world - promoting awareness and advocacy in a multi-national, multi-lingual effort. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Garden%20for%20Change/128/128/2

Dragonfly ... musician extraordinaire














Ok so I am rarely blown away but this morning (my time) I picked up an LM to Tammy Toll’s amazing Musicland live music venue and wow I sure was blown away. First you are greeted by the really friendly Musicland staff ; PADULA (padula.bing) manager, Aggie (aghata4u.aurotharius ) hostess and the lovely Tammy herself. (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Musicland%20Isle/111/136/23 )

BUT then one Dragonfly (Joel Eilde) was performing (is performing since I am listening to him as I write this). This musician is truly brilliant. Now I know I am not a qualified music critic, but I have been to many live music performances in SL to know that there a number of talented muso’s here, but in Joel’s case I can only gush. His music is all his own original work and it ranges from the hilarious (in particular his song about Second Life ...) to the purely ethereally beautiful. Dragonfly is the name of his band – and well erm his is the band!!

After listening to his performance it is safe to say that Joel has yet another fan to add to his considerable list.

Dragonfly/Joel was encouraged by Rara Destiny (a wonderful musician in her own right) to come in to play his music in SL. Thank you Rara you have done SL a great service.

Do yourself a favour find some time to listen to him, look up his calendar here http://dragonfly-live.com . To book him you can contact Bonita Denimore.

I absolutely promise you will not be disappointed.

MUSICIAN MANAGER SPOTLIGHT on Michaela Rookstown, CEO of Starlight Oasis Music Management. “No One Artist Makes SL...There is NO BEST” Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


The Last Musician Manager that was in the blazin SLE Spotlight was asked these same questions and it was great to see them share similar values of Music Awareness in Second Life. Each Musician Manager that is successful at what they do is clearly dedicated to promoting their Musicians and is all part of the driving force that keeps the Music industry booming here in Second Life.

Through the years, I’ve met several musician managers. Some have unfortunately vanished and others have managed to stick around accumulate new and talented musicians to their booking list.

It is definitely an exciting time to be a virtual world junkie with a creative talent to share on a global stage.  Musicians have flocked to Second Life by the hundreds, yet there are just a handful of Managers that are hiding behind the scenes bringing Music to a sim near you. My job is to shine a big ol Spotlight on them.


Please meet this week’s Musician Manager, Michaela Rookstown




Spotlight on Ribbons Magic, Owner of Le Magique and Magique Fantasies Sims Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


    Le Magique and Magique Fantasies are two sims that offer some of the most beautiful structures in Second Life. Owned and operated by Ribbons Magic.

For the most part when I am in Second Life, I am on the business side of the grid, but when I can, I like to dress up and have some fun with my friends. I’m not a real Princess, but I have the tiaras, gowns, shoes and jewels to pretend to be. That’s the beauty of Second Life; it is our imagination that takes us on whichever path we chose, doing whatever our hearts desire while spreading the love and loving what we do.


Ribbon Magic is the kind of spirit that provides a place of wonder and enchantment where avatars are able to go back to a time when innocence and imagination are entwined. She really found her place in this virtual world and provides fantasy and enchantment for residents to enjoy...

A Royal Experience to Remember- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

Le Magique Castle, Magique Fantasies

 It is almost every little girls dream to be a princess when they grow up or at least dress up in a beautiful gown, pretending to be rescued by a true prince and taken away to a castle to live happily ever after.  Just like in Fairy tales, Second Life is a place of imagination and wonder where you can capture a moment in the real world’s rich history, folklores or fairy tales and virtually Role play those fantasies here with all your friends. 

Striking a princess pose


In Second Life, We can all be Princesses or Knights in shining armors, ruling Sims across the grid, slaying dragons and leaping into other role play scenarios.  Remember, it is your world and your imagination that takes you on the best Second Life journeys.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Welcome to a new dimension in Second Life Breedable creatures! Griderz™ Zwicky Creature


Not from this world…
Not from this galaxy…
Not from this universe…
Not from this dimension!

Griderz™ Zwicky Creature

Zwicky creatures are named after the galaxy ‘I Zwicky 18’ a dwarf irregular galaxy located about 59 million light years away. This is where they were discovered during transdimensional propulsion experiments made by Alien Grey scientists.

Zwicky creatures first arrived on earth on July 8, 1947, found in the engine room of a crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft by government officials from Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) in Roswell, New Mexico, USA

They’ve been the study of United States scientists for the past 64 years and kept secret up until now. Human scientists have found that Alien Grey used Zwicky energy to supplement transdimensional propulsion output, thus the Zwicky discovered in the engine room were there for this reason.

Zwicky aren’t harmed while being used for this purpose and actually enjoy the task and attention. Alien Grey supplied the Zwicky with plenty of their favorite food with the “Zwicky Orb” aka (Dark Energy Emitters) which process Plutonium (Pu 244) into dark energy.

Over the years Zwicky creatures have been found to be quite harmless and make great pets. They’re very playful, sociable, and love their owners!

Zwicky will gather among other Zwicky and create the (Zwicky Star) formation. It’s their way of bonding with the family. They also like to chatter with each other and people around them. They love to greet their owner with a “Whooo Hooooo!”...

INSIDE THE SL MUSIC SCENE- The SL Music Scene is full of Amazing Talent, but it’s time to shine a spotlight on the Managers that make it all happen from behind the scenes. Meet Ms. Throughthewalls Moody – Lanai Jarrico Reporting…




This Week, the Music Spotlight Is On Throughthewalls Moody, CEO Of MUSIC NOT POLITICS and manager to over 30 SL Musicians.

When an SL Concert is in full swing and avatars are on the dance floor emoting, dancing and enjoying the show, there main focus is the rock star on stage belting out originals and or covers from the comfort of their own home studios or even garages and bathrooms, because of the awesome acoustics. Who really knows? I just know that there is some amazing talent being showcased in Second Life, mangers that work their prims off and I am all up in the shameless groupie section partying like a rock star.

    Off to the side in these virtual venues, the musician manager quietly handles their business while taking in the show and observing the crowd’s conversation and atmosphere. These Avatars are the ones that put in most of the legwork to organize the amazing concerts and events we all go to and enjoy here in Second Life.  
     
   Besides managers, Venue Hosts are responsible for the locations these concerts take place and are a big part of what makes it all work. Together they promote and book SL musicians tirelessly across the grid for our entertainment, so I think tipping Managers, Hosts and Venues aside from Musicians is a big help to preserving live music in Second Life.

  Since Hosts and managers spend most of their time in the shadow of the main attraction, they never really get recognized, yet they are just as worthy of it.
 So with all that said,  I will be introduce you to some managers and hosts in the coming weeks that have a lot to say about what it takes to do what they do to get their artists known.

Thousands of Second Life residents will be painting their stores and houses purple, wearing purple clothes, purple hair, even purple skin, in order to show their support for the Relay For Life of Second Life and to spread a purple Message of Hope.
Relay For Life® is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) is an annual activity that takes place in Second Life® in July each year. Volunteers form or join teams to have fun while fundraising and raising awareness from mid-March through mid-July. In July teams build campsites and walk a track, just like in a real world Relay.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Spring has definitely Sprung and New and Seasoned Mamas are celebrating Mother’s Day across the grid and around the world. Lanai Jarrico Reporting…



 To many, Mother’s Day signifies the day that we show our appreciation for the women that gave us life and nurtured us from children into our adulthood.  According to Wikipedia, my favorite source for all forms of official and unofficial, somewhat faulty and questionable knowledge, Mother’s Day was established by Anna Marie Jarvis following the death of her mother Ann Marie Reeves Jarvis on May 9, 1905.

What is Cinco de Mayo and why do we celebrate it?- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…




      Well…If you think it is a celebration of intoxicating proportions, you are partially right, but if you wanted to get all Wikipedia nerdy about it, Cinco de Mayo is not a National or Mexican holiday nor is it Mexico’s Independence Day, like peeps might believe it to be.

  The United States has taken over this unofficial holiday to give people more of  a reason to let go of their inhibitions and party on with drunken madness, but it has become commercialized.

OPERA JOVEN sim is in danger of closing-GUADALAJARA, JALISCO, MEXICO - La Perla Tapatia



According to the descriptions, Jalisco is one of the most beautiful States in Mexico. Guadalajara City is the capital. This SIM is a touristic replica built by OPERA JOVEN (www.operajoven.com) a RL nonprofit cultural & artistic organization. But, it is in danger of closing its doors like many other non profits being hurt by LL's decision to cancel the 50% discount given to non profits on islands tiers.
http://tinyurl.com/sl-discount-cancelled


Moby Randt writes in a notecard, 

"This is a shame because these organizations provide SL many content and handle diverse interesting educative and cultural projects. Without this discount surely many of these organizations will abandon SL soon."


Without this discount, OPERA JOVEN cannot keep paying this sim and unfortunately it will disappear.
 However, Linden Lab offers these organizations to pay in advance up to 2 years before 2011 to still benefit of this discount. http://tinyurl.com/sl-offer-pay-in-advance

At this time, six months costs $885 dollars, equivalent aprox. to L$250,000.

From 2011 this price will be doubled.

“Compressive Sensing”

Sensing and imaging systems are under increasing pressure to accommodate ever larger and higher-dimensional data sets; ever faster capture, sampling, and processing rates; ever lower power consumption; communication over ever more difficult channels; and radically new sensing modalities.

The foundation of today's digital data acquisition systems is the Shannon/Nyquist sampling theorem, which asserts that to avoid losing information when digitizing a signal or image, one must sample at least two times faster than the signal's bandwidth, at the so-called Nyquist rate.  Unfortunately, the physical limitations of current sensing systems combined with inherently high Nyquist rates impose a performance brick wall to a large class of important and emerging applications. 

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: The Fruit Islands Embraces Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland May 7th & 8th

All in the golden afternoon
Full leisurely we glide;
For both our oars, with little skill,
By little arms are plied,
While little hands make vain pretense
Our wanderings to guide. . .

Thus grew the tale of Wonderland:
Thus slowly, one by one,
Its quaint events were hammered out--
And now the tale is done,
And home we steer, a merry crew,
Beneath the setting sun.

Alice! a childish story take,
And with a gentle hand
Lay it where Childhood's dreams are twined
In Memory's mystic band,
Like pilgrim's withered wreath of flowers
Plucked in a far-off land.

Lizzo Dreamscape is one of the best Events Coordinators in the Virtual World.  This is not a subjective opinion, this is fact.  Lizzo manages events for the Fruit Islands – an estate with 115 sims and the biggest private sea in SL.  There are more than 40 public sims to enjoy in the estate: diving, golf, horseback riding or surfing. It is a handful for the most talented events manager with daily events, like concerts, sailing lessons, ballet, art expos and film festivals. Only someone with Ms. Dreamscapes skill and talent could manage a schedule this bold and weave together a Wonderland themed weekend chocked full of diverse activities: Literature, Music, Dance, Art.
