|Avacar Bluestar and Lanai Jarrico|
It’s not too often I get to sit down with another Media CEO and share stories about what brought us to Second Life, let alone simultaneously conducting an interview with one another. Talk about an awkward first meeting set up by a friend...
We were both interested in interviewing the other but unsure who was doing the asking at the time. After breaking the awkward silence, we shared a mutual introduction. Avacar initiated the beginning of an interesting conversation by asking me questions about my history here in the virtual world. It turns out, his virtual world experience started much like my own. I quickly learned that we both have one starting point in common; The Sims Online. Avacar and I joked about making pizza as we sat in my office sharing our stories. He told me how he took over GWN operations when the founder suddenly passed away. At the time, Avacar was a leading writer that wanted to continue his friend’s vision. He shared his dedication and sacrifices and how some of it even created turmoil in his real life. Looking back I’m sure it was worth the effort, but it is now time for him to move forward to another media project. *gasps* Opps! Did I just let the cat out of the bag?

|The Tiger in Flight|
Just when you think nothing on sl can surprise you anymore, you find yourself in the middle of a WWII aviation reenactment as a side gunner on a Japanese bomber with a white wolf wearing angle wings as your pilot. No kidding, but I digress. What started out four years ago as a small group of nomadic aviator friends flying around the grid for fun has evolved into a multi sim operation, the largest aviation group in sl with over 2400 members and a bunch of downright fun folks to hang out with. Meet “The Flying Tigers”.
Earlier this week, Linden Labs revealed a new region in Second Life, the Wilderness.
Meet other Premium members and travel together through a dense rainforest filled with abandoned ruins, mysterious tombs, and hidden surprises in Wilderness, Second Life's newest exclusive destination for Premium-only fun. Hop aboard a boat cruise for an Amazonian adventure sure to thrill and chill, or check out one of the bars or hangout spots. Rumor even has it there are fish within the waters of the Wilderness, so grab your fishing rod and attempt to catch a rare species - or try to wrangle an ornery alligator!

**This event is a FEATURED SECOND LIFE DESTINATIONS EVENT**:
PURPOSE: The March Military Expo will feature a Merchants fair, where we are inviting all military, weapons, aviation, and smiliar merchants of SL to set up a small merchant tent in the WW2 Memorial park area for 5 days. You will be able to bring your creations and services to a wide variety of people in SL!. This event is in SL Destinations as a featured SL Destinations event! To bring even larger crowds, we will hold all of Amelia's events that week near the military expo. So guests will have contests, musics, live DJs, as well as other contests. We will promote the event as much as possible, giving you and your business free advertising.
*There will be limited space available for military affiliated groups who wish to exhibit**
Cost: This expo is free of charge to all approved creators and merchants.
For any questions or comments please contact jessii2009 Warrhol in world.
As most of us know there are a number of discount groups in and around Second Life, where we can buy a variety of things and depending on the group the discounted price is anything from L50 to as low as L25 for items bought on a certain day. I understand from vendors I have spoken to that these discount days are extremely lucrative.
Another SL phenomenon is ‘the hunt’. The gifts made available on hunts vary in quality depending on who is organising them, so along came Titania Halasy and her 30L Hunt group. This group morphs the discount phenomenon with the hunt phenomenon.
Titania explains “It’s a new concept: a hunt, traditional in its form, with hints and hidden items, where the focus is on quality rather than quantity.”
To all intents and purposes the hunt prizes will be of a quality level normally associated with full-price store items but sold at 30L each, when found. In all participating stores, Hunters will get a hint, with the hunt prize picture for that store and the landmark to the next store.
Hunters will need to visit each store at least once, as in a traditional hunt, to get the next landmark, but will have control on what prizes they prefer to hunt for.
Titania says “It's a great chance for fun and for Creators to promote items that will, after the hunt, be sold normally at full price in their stores.”
The 30L Hunt group is calling this hunt ‘The BLACK EGG Hunt’ and it is scheduled to run from 01 April to 08 April. It is a circular hunt which means you can start it from any store. The official starting point though is to be at TRIDENT (Houses, Furniture, Ships, Landscaping) which can be found @

Book a Spotlight Feature, get a Logo Display and Blogging rights with The SL Enquirer and Press Pass Media for a double dose of Media power in the virtual world.
Like the impressive lady archer statue that meets a teleport to noBrix City , this new in-world commercial center appears right on target on establishing a firm presence in SL’s metaverse.
In just a few months since its establishment late last year, this district ranked as the eleventh most visited sim in December 2011. Why such a lofty ranking in so short a time can readily understood. For one, the dreaded, soup-like lag of similar SL complexes is largely unfelt as one navigates through its quadrants of trendy fashion shops, modeling agency, club and setups for casual games.

America has a space shuttle named “ Endeavour”. That name comes from good lineage. History buffs might remember something about Captain Cook and his famous sailing ship “The Endeavour”. For those who might not, here is a brief run down. Captain James Cook was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer and Captain of the famous exploration ship “HM Bark Endeavor”. He was the first European to make contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, as well as the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. In short, he was a famous explorer who made many remarkable discoveries. This is where Endeavor Cove derives their name. They, and I, would like to invite you to come “Explore and Discover Endeavor Cove”

Dream Seeker Estates going the extra mile
Second Life -21 March 2012: As Fashion For Life, the multi-day opening event for Second Life’s Relay For Life season draws to a close, the Dream Seeker Estates Corporation announces various new programs to further its charitable engagement in Second Life.
Dream Seeker Estates Corporation today announced the establishment of the Philanthropic Society of Dream Seekers. Membership to this society is open to residents and friends of any of the corporation’s estates including Dream Seeker Estates, Costa Rica Sims and Rockhopper Estates, and is to be coordinated by Harper Beresford. It is the intention of the corporation to register the Society as a Relay For Life team and to engage its various communities through fundraising activities in support of medical research and natural disaster response.
Dream Seeker Productions, which under the leadership of Roe Woodford is responsible for the production of fashion shows, will work closely with the Philanthropic Society of Dream Seekers and will leverage the exposure that the fashion shows produce and the generosity of the fashion community to generate charitable donations in support of the current fundraising activities of the Society.
What’s more, following their well-received sponsorship of Fashion For Life with the underwriting of all 10 sims used for the event, Dream Seeker Estates Corporation announced today that it has reached an agreement with the American Cancer Society to become an official corporate sponsor of Relay For Life in Second Life. Effective immediately, the corporation’s long running referral commission program is to be expanded to directly benefit Relay For Life.
For every new rental where the resident mentions they heard about the estate through a Relay For Life team or event organized by a specific team, the corporation will donate the standard referral commission to that team.
Keep your eye open for announcements of events to be organized under the auspices of the Philanthropic Society of Dream Seekers.

I think Carmichael said all that needed to be said to last nights event. This ceremony gave me the chance to stop Trippin, to spend time with old, new friends and family.

Ah what a wonderful evening it was.....wait it is still going on with the after party lol,but I decided to write this article while it was still fresh in my memory before the champagne makes it blurry.
The evening was about honoring media mogul Lanai Jarrico, owner of The SLenquirer newspaper and Press Pass network.
Organized by Scorpinosis Nightfire's Pulse TV Network. His team was excellent in guiding the guests and rehearsals of those doing speeches like myself and SLenquirer journalist Allen Eppenberger, Tv personality Pooky Amsterdam, Pulse Tv's Nani Xue who also DJ'd after and journalist Persia Bravin who left a touching notecard which was read to the audience, all this while Lanai waited backstage and listened.

And then there are mermaids, an amazing aquatic and mythological species with a human form and the tail of a fish, truly graceful and amazing. "Mermaid" is a mixture of two words, mer the French word for "sea", and maid, being a young woman.

|The Sojourner Memorial|
What started as a story about a building contest turned into the story of "The Sojourner" and the Love of a Mouse.
I'm a builder here on SL and a couple of weeks back, I went to one of my haunts to watch a “Speed Building” contest. While there, I saw the notice for the monthly building contests. The theme for the month of March was “Green”. I thought, Wonderful! What a great theme, green, as in the environment. That would probably make a great story. So I sent an IM the owner of the “Dream Builders” group, a person by the name of “The Sojourner”, to ask for an interview. A little while later, I received an IM from Golda Stine, who said she was the sim caretaker. This struck me as a bit odd, but we set up a time to get together later that day. It turns out Golda is a pint-sized mouse with a giant heart of gold. After some initial chit chat, I got down to business and asked questions about the history of the sim, the how and why of the group and the March build contest. This is when I realized the story was not going to be about the contest; it is the story of The Sojourner.

Time for a cure is the theme for the music festival running in conjunction with Relay for Life in Second Life.
Two Relay For Life in SL teams are hosting a music festival which runs from March 10th through to 17th March and which will consist of live performers, DJ’s, Poets as well as a Nickelback tribute band. This dual team event has the two teams collaborating for this worthy cause.
Still Braveheart, who has put in a great deal of the legwork in organising the festival explains how the team she represents is made up “The team, ‘SL Music Races for a Cure’, is made up of all the different avenues of the music community; performers, managers, venue owners, fans, music group owners. This is a wonderful way for the entire music community to achieve a few things--camaraderie, exposure to the music community, and most importantly, the ability to make a difference in the battle against cancer, a devastating disease that has affected everyone in some way shape or form. It is a team made up of 120 members from all walks of the live music community”. The SL Music Races for a Cure team have already accumulated over US$800 for this Relay for Life season.
The other team participating in the music festival is ‘Hero’s For Life’. NightWalker Galaxy representing ‘The Hero’s For Life’ says of his team’ “this team was formed by 4 People who wanted to help in the fight against cancer...We have based our theme after the marvel comic book heroes who are there for anyone that is in need of them...The motto of the Hero’s is ‘Stand Strong against cancer’.... Each member of the team has their own ability and brings their own helping hand and together there isn’t anything we will not do or put together to help in this fight.” Hero’s is a much smaller team but has a big heart and heart and compassion can't be measured in numbers.....
The venue itself is located at the corner of Relay Boulevard and Cure Avenue. There will be vendors available which will house only Relay sale items, along with the regular shops along the street. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/the%20breakers/32/152/22
Still Braveheart concludes by saying “We are looking forward to the best Relay For Life Season ever....having fun and making a difference in the battle against cancer.”

As the various events for The Relay for Life for 2012 get ready to kick off I would like to share this story with you.
In 2007 one Courtesan DeCuir arrived in Second Life. Courtesan DeCuir who had been a prior cancer survivor took Relay for Life very seriously. One year she did a tribute as her music Idol “Martina McBride” during Relay for Life to help those who were in need and another time we heard Courtesan speak once more through Martina McBride in the words of her release “I’m Gonna Love You Through It”.
Now it's forced smiles and baggy shirts
To hide what the cancer took from her
But she just wants to feel like a woman again
She said, "I don't think I can do this anymore"
He took her in his arms and said “That's what my love is for”
In her time in SL, Courtesan met and eventually married Ortho Vargas. Courtesans’ impact on Ortho was immediate. She mentioned to her friends that her greatest moment was when he took a picture of her hair and with that image he created the REDHEAD.
On the very last day of Relay for Life 2011, Courtesan DeCuir passed away from a brief illness. Her loss has transcended friendship and family.
The team at JCS decided to dedicate the ‘Devoted to a Cure’ logo for the 2012 Relay for Life to her.
The BASS GUITAR is the BC RICH READHEAD. The original graphic in the guitar is of Courtesans hair.
The Four Strings signify the four years Courtesan blessed us with her presence. 2007 to 2011. Each year symbolizing a year. The wings signify her Transition and Ascension into heaven. At the very top behind the neck of the Guitar you will see a heart; the shadows mean that she continues to reach out to everyone. You will also notice two streaks of water; the first streak is to remind us of the tears shed when we learned she had passed away. The Second streak is for the tears shed on the day of her memorial. Behind the wings are linked music notes. These represent the harmony Ortho and Courtesan shared with one another and to remind us of the music that brought them together.
The connected circles you see are really a C and an O = Courtesan and Ortho.
And finally the last partially filled in circle is called the circle of life. JCS believe that it takes a lifetime to really get to know someone, especially when that person accepts your hand and agrees to share that lifetime with you. They also feel that Courtesan was taken away too soon. So they left this circle partially unfinished to remind us all, just how precious life truly is.Please, if you have the means, give to Relay for Life. No one is promised tomorrow. Only with your help can we give hope to those that are still trying to complete their Circle of Life.
Dedicated to Courtesan DeCuir by
Johnathan Hiess, Jenna Coppola, Tari Ember and the Entire JCS Family
