Things You Should Know About Using Social Media and How It Can Affect You -Lanai Jarrico Reporting…



Technology has made it easy for people from all over the world to communicate and express themselves in real time with family, friends, co- workers and other sources that you cannot otherwise connect with in local settings. 

 Users pick up new friends fast and easy by common interests, through mutual friends or an association with jobs and other resources.  The important thing in maintaining a successful social media network is by monitoring it for unwanted content and removing those that create negative energy for you and others that can read all the feeds and posts available in your network.  The most important thing to know is, you are in control of your social media and should practice common sense when allowing others into your space because if something goes wrong, you are responsible for it.

Five Spiritual Tips by Linda Lauren


Another year has opened up, along with another opportunity to grow with the positive energy available to us.  Most of us remember to take care of the mind and the body, but we often neglect to tend to the Spirit, and yet it is the spirit that moves our daily lives on in  terms of positive and negative. I believe that is because there is confusion as to what the spirit is and what role it plays in the big picture. Most people understand the Spirit to be something they can not touch that is often defined through our faith and only practiced when we visit a house of worship.

Your Spirit is much more than that. It is the essence of who you are. It defines you and molds the personality. It is the factor that is responsible for the emotions you embrace and the moods you have in your life. Whether you respond or react, which are two very different things,  is really up to your spirit. So it's very important that you understand that that essence feeds your morale. When you are sad, that is the Spirit feeling sad. That in turn makes you think sad thoughts  and you become depressed. That sadness overwhelms you and eventually affects your body and it creates a dis-ease. Your Spirit is the universal life force within you and it is responsible for who you are and how you live. Keeping your Spirit up is a way to a healthy life. Here are some  tips to start you off:


Minimize your intake of news - be careful how you are feeding your spirit.  Nourish it with what you need to know rather than gorge on an appetite of what can fast become an abundant menu of negativity.

Every Princess Dreams of her Wedding Day to the Perfect Prince -Lanai Jarrico Reporting...


 Helpful Guide to Getting Married in Second life

Marriage in Second Life© is a mutual celebration of love surrounded by avatars that care and support the couple’s commitment to one another. There are many different traditions and preferences when planning the perfect wedding and they can be found in the virtual world.  It all depends on what  couples want.  Some prefer to include their traditions, family and friends. Others choose to make it a more intimate affair with only their closest circle of loved ones in attendance.  Whatever the preferences, love and happiness is truly what matters.

Second Life Etiquette Part 4- Good Business Sense- Pandora Drezelan Reporting...

Pandora Drezelan


 

As part four of The Second Life Etiquette series I am going to discuss etiquette within the work place, both as an employer and an employee, conducting business within Second Life is not really that much different to working situations in real life, however this may depend on your virtual job description. There is always a dress code as well as a code of ethics to maintain which also includes basic common sense and good manners. This may come across as a little harsh, but if you wish to relive your real life job within the virtual world or embark on your dream job that you never thought was possible then read on and please leave your comments and feedback.

Leonard Cohen, now his is a name that evokes all sorts of feelings doesn't it?  I mean his iconic song Hallelujah for instance; doesn't it just speak to you on any number of levels? 

For those of you who may not know who Leonard Cohen is, he is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet, and novelist. His work often explores religion, isolation, sexuality, and interpersonal relationships.

Cheshyr's Landing- Allen Eppenberger Reporting...



If you’re like me, you kind of use a “click it and see where it takes me” approach to Second Life.  On this particular day, I was in a Sci Fi mood and did a search and came up with the usual suspects.  A couple of links in and I came across a place called Novatech HQ & Sci-Fi Mall.

“I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.” * Lacy Muircastle reporting ....


* Quote by Steve Martin

I support Lanai’s stance on rape completely as stated in her article “A Disgraceful Sub-culture in Second Life”.  In no world is rape acceptable in any form whatsoever. 



At the end of last year I conducted some interviews with a few sex workers in Second Life, with a view to highlighting yet another way in which SL emulates RL.  I am not the first to post interviews with those that sell sex on SL and nor will I be the last. I want to assure you that the issue of rape had not crossed my mind when I decided to do this piece and in the case of the ladies I spoke with, the sex involved is consensual at all times and rape is not an option. 


The premise for my article originally was - why would the men of SL pay for something they can get for free almost anywhere in SL?

Discovery News: Kinect Sensors Turn House into A Virtual Video Game-TechNewsDaily Reports



Can you imagine being able to scan your surroundings or yourself walking, running, dancing, engaging in combat fighting..... having sex or doing other action packed activities while being able to download it , in real time, to the virtual world? I think these developers are on to something big. Check out this interesting new technology and give us your thoughts on the ways you would use it in Second Life.



 I'm assuming there would be a lot of real dance competitions, Zumba classes and air fist fights with griefers. Not to mention a new wave of escorts that would flock back if there were adult attachments and accessories included. lol - Lanai Jarrico

It’s Time To Blow The Whistle On A Disgraceful Sub-culture in Second Life – Lanai Jarrico Reporting…




Second Life is a virtual world where anything is possible. Thousands of people from around the world flock to Second Life every day to engage in role play, business, education, global communication, self promotion, creativity and leisure exploration. Others unfortunately are misguided by dark pleasures and hidden agendas. They are the ones holding Second Life back from being taken seriously. Many real world organizations have pulled out of Second Life due to the shenanigans and distasteful activity that can be easily accessed. So easily, even young children can be potentially exposed to it.

 Where do we draw the line?  Do we turn the other way and keep it movin’ or do we speak up to make SL a better place?

Spotlight on Las Vegas & SLebrity City: Interview with Vic (trulifehussla)- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


    

    When I think about Las Vegas, the city that never sleeps, I imagine wild nights, restless days, the hot beaming sun, high rollers, escorts, drag queens, Elvis, wedding chapels, pawn shops and all sorts of  energy packed entertainment. The infamous saying is, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”. Perhaps the same can be said about Second Life’s version of sin city, without the gambling. Aside from SL’s Las Vegas City, is another sim owned and operated by Vic aka Trulifehussla, named SLebrity City. It is less lavishly designed but has a personality all its own with an urban twist.


I recently took a self guided tour of both sims and I must say the builders did a fantastic job of capturing the essence of city life by paying great attention to detail. I’ve visited many sims and have to say the atmosphere is what I would expect from an authentic urban community as well as a Vegas style venue, complete with unique events and entertainment.

 I sat down with Vic for an interview to find out more about him and the creativity and entertainment he brings to the Second Life community.

VMS News: Bluemonk Rau : Left off Rte 66, Right into SL- Pen Dragon Reporting...




Many Second Life artists can lay claim to performing their music for live audiences in the real world,  but few can say they have worked with some of the biggest venues and artists in their genre. Fewer artists still can boast 40 years as both a professional performer and recording artist.  Even fewer have the honor of being a founding member of a band that was once voted “L.A.'s Entertainer of the year.” Bluemonk Rau can say all of this and more of himself and his career

HOW SOCIAL MEDIA BORDERS ON BULLYING by Linda Lauren

I like Jimmy Kimmel, but I don’t care for his segment called Mean Tweets. I thought the delivery by the celebrities of the  tweets from insulting fans was humorous in delivery,  but really sad that people think its ok to insult others via social media. People like Christina Applegate and Dr. Phil were able to poke fun at themselves with these tweets. But what kind of message are we sending when we make light of words that are meant to be mean and hateful? Last time I checked that was called BULLYING. Seems no one is exempt even when they think they are.

What ever happened to that friendly “front porch” of kind people and helpful information? Slowly, I have seen Facebook and Twitter take a subtle turn and become places for people to bully while safely hiding behind the keyboard. It doesn’t matter whether or not they are doing so to celebrities or anyone else, it’s still bullying. And all these social media platforms have done is to encourage that behavior and I’m not a fan, even if it’s frivolous. Do you honestly think that all those mean posts and tweets that are typed, LIKED or Commented on all over social media don’t enrage people,  with and without guns?

You don’t have to have a gun to kill a person, whether that is their spirit, their mind or their body. Words can kill people, too, and it’s the kind of death that is slow, deliberate, and painful. We are responsible for our actions when we use words as a weapon and it makes us no different than the person with the gun. But, we are all contributing to what happens that is negative in our world. That contribution appears in our status as rage on the pages of social media and it helps to  perpetuate angry energy that lead people to hurting others or to kill in cold blood.

Let’s go one step further, and see how you might be responsible for what I’m talking about in my blog today. If you have ever posted a picture of an animal that needs help, a sick child, a  situation or words that dared someone to share, click, like in order to say they are actually in favor, that would be a form of bullying. A person proves they care by the action they actually take, not the pictures and links they click on. Intention is nothing without action.

And I  wake up to this every single morning on Facebook and Twitter. I am totally sick of it and I find it depressing to visit.  I can’t hide much of my stream any longer or I won’t have a stream. And I know a lot of you are doing the same thing because you can’t take it either, so please stop buying into the rage and threatening people to agree with you.   I really wish that the people in this world set a better example for each other.

Good behavior is still very funny believe it or not. And it also does encourages more of the same.

Lanai’s Diary: OMG I Gained the Holiday 10… -Lanai Jarrico



2012 was filled with all sorts of news, events, drama and whatnot and on top of it all I stepped on my scale this morning and it went up a notch or two…or ten!   I had a rough year so I indulged in many holiday cookies as well as big traditional family dinners. I guess I’ll kick off the year doing Zumba.  Just not today…
 
Besides the holiday 10, things are finally getting back to some normalcy on the home front and I’m easing my way back into my virtual office.  I think 2013 will be an interesting year and I’m excited to share what I'm up to.

I went ahead and threw myself head first into a new project here in Second Life © and accepted the position to co-host a talk show on Pulse TV Network. The show is called Girl Talk and is slated to begin production in January 2013.  I must warn you all that I have no previous talk show experience, my opinions may be a little off tilt, too real for some or have nothing to do with the topic at all, but I think it may be worth checking out.

I feel  it is about time I expand my virtual media horizons and do something that may potentially embarrass myself and blemish my already questionable reputation or  it could catapult me into some sort of superstar situation where I can no longer hide behind the scenes and handle my business like the wizard of Oz did.

I would like to see new things happen this year in Second Life. Many of us need to break away from the repetitive nature of the current environment and introduce new ideas and even people from the real world.  The virtual world has been around a long time but we are still in need of mainstream attention. New people bring new ideas and it helps keep things fresh and interesting.

If I’m going to step out from behind the curtain, I need your help. I would like to hear from the community so I can help improve your experience. If you have a topic idea you would like me to address an issue or interview someone, please feel free to email me at lanai_jarrico@yahoo.com
