In PA Justice has been Served! Jerry Sandusky is quilty of child molestation and faces up to 442 years!

screenshot of Lanai's iphone

I literally walked in the door from a 5 1/2 hour trip from Cape Cod, Massachusetts back to Pennsylvania. Before I even got home, my phone kept going off and here is what was being reported.

I Dropped my bags at the door, hopped in the shower and put on my pajamas. With everyone all settled in bed,  I grabbed my laptop because I wanted to share the news and touch on a topic that many choose not to discuss because it is uncomfortable to even think about; Child abuse and sexual molestation.

Before I get all deep, the good news is former Penn State’s defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky was just found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts of child sexual molestation and faces up to 442 years in prison. This is only one of the many predators still out there, but it is a great victory for the victims. Tonight they can begin to heal knowing he cannot hurt another child because justice has been served.

Stand 4 Love

Most of of us know that life is no walk in the park and that challenges will inevitably be thrown across our path as we take this journey.  But there is no justification in the whole wide world for discrimination in any form whatsoever, yet discrimination in one form or another has been part of society throughout time.  I am South African and white at that and have lived through being made an example of by the world because of the government policies that were in place.  I am glad to say that those policies are no longer there.  But actually the rest of the world had no right to ostracize South Africa, how does that saying go, ' people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones...'  What it has done for us though is give us the most liberal and all encompassing constitution.

Here Mesh, there mesh everywhere mesh, mesh ....

We have all encountered Mesh in one way or another haven't we? 

If you don't have a Mesh compatible viewer it can be quite hilarious but frustrating at the same time, then there are the sizing issues if you buy a Mesh outfit, suddenly size raises its ugly head in SL, and here's me thinking that would be one issue we could leave in the real world, but apparently not. The fashion designers in partricular have had a tough time getting to grips with Mesh, but it has been a god send to other content creators.

SLE Staff Interview: Meet Pandora Drezelan

How would you describe yourself in 5 words?

Pandora:  ‘I am a perfectionist, a listener and a talker as well as being both humorous and serious, depending on the situation.’
What brought you to Second Life and how has it impacted you as a person?

Pandora:‘ It was my real life niece’s idea and even though I didn’t think that I’d like it, obviously I did because I’m still here, it’s been amazing and I have met so many remarkable people and done things that I never thought possible.’

someone should have told me silks weren't for clubbing back in 2006

Being a newbie can be overwhelming and downright awkward with embarrassing clothing and hair malfunctions while bumping into every object and other avatars in a sloppy stumble through Second Life. It truly is a hideous sight to observe. Especially when dealing with newbies that ransack freebie prop shops and are strapped heavily with an arsenal of griefer gadgets. My first experience with such a Noob griefer did not end very pleasantly for either of us. His naked avatar along with his chicken on a stick prop came to me asking for a job. Needless to say, he was not hired. He was instead ejected and banned from the media center and I have been left emotionally scarred for SLife by the whole ordeal ever since.

The New PODEX Exchange Visa Card You Can Use to Pay Bills, Make Online Purchases or even Withdraw from an ATM. How’s That for Some Real Perks? Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

Podex Exchange

As a VW reporter I hear all sorts of interesting things from people. If I wanted to sit here all day and gossip or dishing out scoops about awesome people, I would be a popular lunch lady. Nonetheless, here’s a little food for thought.I was told Second Life was really created as a place for the founding virtual nerds to test new concepts and ideas. Rather than let the grid get lost in cyberspace, one person’s idea of offering it over to users on a global platform was a big hit, making that person a “GOD “to avatars. These days the Lindens, are treated more like fallen angels that don’t show up when called upon or lack the ability to create miracles for residents. Once again, we find ourselves with free will, our own imagination and choices to make as long as we don’t break the terms of service. We have the choice to squander our time role playing, getting down to business or a little bit of both. In the years I have spent observing the Second Life community the business sector has grown dramatically. Back in 2005, avatars were still a bit wet behind the ears in business. Many premium members produced freebies and corner shops in countless malls or used rental ad boards at different in-world venues. You can still see that today but the difference is, those that are successful, utilize more media sources, social networks and services that offer real perks like a boost in customer traffic and revenues.

Podex ATM

Avatars are banking up Lindens and cashing them out at an increasing rate using e-commerce portals like Podex Exchange. Many already know how to be profitable using this company and are excited about the new visa card . Others are just realizing how the virtual world works with new technology and services. Podex Exchange keeps up with how avatars do business in Second Life and provides the customer service people deserve.

 Podex is a company that understands the needs of the community in both Second Life (SL) and in the physical world (RL). They are an official reseller with all the bells and whistles to show for it. Aside from offering the most competitive exchange rates available in Second Life, Podex has launched its new Visa Debit Card for real world transactions.

I met up with Podex Exchange CEO, Jacek Shuftan to talk more about this new debit card and the response it has had so far.

Lanai's Diary: June 7, 2012- A Zombie Apocolypes in Real Life? Maybe we are safer in Second Life... - Lanai Jarrico

Lanai Jarrico on Zombie Patrol

There is so much madness going on these days, that it makes the things I have to deal with in my day to day life, seem petty and mundane and believe me in the last month, I’ve been dealt a hand of all Jokers in an impossible card game. I’m so glad I can log into Second Life as an escape and do what I love. Write and stay busy. Lately some real world news has been catching my attention. There have been reports of crazy zombie-like cannibals on the loose. Some of these cases sound like they are straight out of a horror flick or a regular Thursday night in Second Life’s role play scene.

SLE Staff Interview- Meet Shon Charisma

You have read their stories on the SL Enquirer. Now it's time to meet the writers behind them.

Please meet Shon Charisma:

Shon Charisma

How would you describe yourself in 5 words?
Shon: Funny. Talented. Sincere. Creative. Intriguing.

What brought you to Second Life and how has it impacted you as a person?
Shon: I came to SL for a RL college class a few years ago, and actually, I hated it. LOL I came from the class and left. A few months later, I returned and began to move around the grid and check some things out and decided to stay. The biggest impact, and it's not a really positive one, lol, is that it's made me doubly busy in my overall life. Just like in RL, I have a whole set of friends that require attention and too much work to do. Ha! A positive, however, is that I have had the opportunity to be a part of experiences that I have yet to do in the real world, such as help put together Broadway style plays and performances.

Helping Haven A Place For All Second Life Residents -Pandora Drezelan Reporting...

I spoke with Lily recently about her experiences in Second Life and the beginning of Helping Haven.
