Seychelles Isles Coast Guard providing peace of mind - Lacy Muircastle reporting ....

The exclusive Seychelles Isles Estate offers its residents peace of mind among other things.

Seychelles Isles being a sailing, boating and flying community located on the Linden Ocean with access to the Blake Sea require the services of The Coast Guard. The SICG exists to defend and preserve the Seychelles Isles. They protect the personal safety and security of the residents; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; the natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of the estate – from both internal and external threats, virtual or otherwise.

Looking for Romantic Places in Second Life?- Tea Couturier Reporting...




When you and your partner wish to go out and spend a little quality time together it can be hard finding that one place where you can be romantic with one another
Well never fear I have a small selection of venues which I feel will enable you to find a quiet spot to have fun and spend some romantic time together.



Stars Romantic Dance Club


Here you can dance under the stars just you and your partner (also with other couples) It is set on a beach but as you walk up the steps to approach the club it cannot be mistaken for a beach venue. The venue is set up lovely with a well-stocked intan full of dances. When I went there it was quiet. That is a good thing for those of you seeking to spend some quality time together in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.





Oceana Romantic Ballroom

If you’re looking for a bit more of a formal venue this is a great venue to visit. Set near the ocean the Oceana is a perfect getaway for lovers, with its formal ballroom and romantic spots. It has many intans dotted around the dance floor.




INTIMATE ROMANCE GARDEN

This is one of my favorite venues in SL and a place you and your partner should definitely visit. This venue has two places where you and your partner can go. The dance floor when you arrive or to the ballroom. I would advise formal dress once in the ballroom for both you and your partner.





Grind
Grind supposed to be the place where couples are king. A more of a modern venue where non formal clothing is needed. It is owned by the AEG Ambrosia Entertainment Management Super group. It is a venue where it is all about the music and having fun.


These are just a few places you can visit for some romantic quality time with your significant other.





If you know of other  romantic places to recommend to our readers, please use the comment box below to suggest a location and slurl!

The Green Lanterns of Second Life – The True Virtual Super Heroes- Debby Sharma Reporting...



‘In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight!
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!’



The Green Lanterns have taken their name from the comic book. In Second Life they are the neighborhood watchers. They dress like the original Green Lanterns original comic characters and patrol the grid to assist residents off griefers attack and help new residents. Over the years they have filed several reports to Linden Labs. They also play a role in training the land owners about security arrangements. They offer free training and uniforms to members who wish to join the force. They have started maintaining a live help chat since June, 2014. Here is the link http://lanternalliance.com/irc.htm. No extra Hud or group space is required; no chat interface, just a log in and you are good to go. SL peacekeepers monitor this channel. 
Visit their headquarters in The Unknown Country http://slurl.com/secondlife/The%20Unknown%20Country/171/152/2022

In the past few months you might have heard of a link that seem to take to the market place, but instead it has hacking the profile passwords and withdrawing large amounts. You would always hear these from group chats or notices. One such threat I heard, and would like to share with you.
On 23rd November, 2014 BlackAngel Firehawk informed of a Hack Link Warning, “In some Groups today my friend is noticing a link being passed out with the letters MY3GB in it....looks like a Market place link...DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK it will hack your account. Warning do not click on any link with the letters "MY3GB" in it, It takes over your account changes password they buy the max L$ and transfer to different account and cash out and use your account to pass same link to all friends.”
If you hear any of the sorts or any other griefer, do not forget to call the Green Lanterns. To know more about them and their work process, I contacted, the founder, Hal Jordan, Green Lantern Excelsior and I had the honor of speaking with him.

Debby Sharma: How has 2014 been in terms of security?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): We have not seen the large amount of organized group griefing that has plagued SL in the past. The gigantic problem that seems to be catching many people off guard is a phishing scheme where people get their accounts hijacked, and the hijacker sends out links to a fake SL Marketplace website where residents might carelessly enter their SL username and password. It's too bad people fall for that.

Debby Sharma: What steps are you taking and what steps should we take to prevent that?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): I have seen blog entries and group notices several times about this issue. In some cases it will be a caution to not click on links sent out from some specific person, and in other cases it will be a general "beware" notice to be careful what links you click on. I don't know if Linden Lab has sent any messages about this problem. It is difficult to educate everyone about schemes like this, because there are so many bogus urban legend notices going around that sometimes it's hard to tell which is a legitimate problem and which is just something made up to slander another resident.
I've seen notices cautioning people not to click on links or accept items from some specific resident because they will steal all your Lindens or send a virus to your PC or some other incredible claim. I think some of those are just people having a feud with another resident and trying to besmirch the other person's reputation.
If people would just take the time to look at an Internet address and make sure that it really goes to secondlife.com, many of these problems could be avoided.

Debby Sharma: I wanted to ask, do you give training to land owners, if so, is there any schedule for classes?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): I have a 2010 griefer presentation that covers parcel security. I haven't made up a schedule for doing training because people haven't been asking me to train them. The presentation is here: https://sites.google.com/site/herouniversepeacekeepers/parcel-security. I would be happy to go to people's parcels and help them with their security if they are interested. We never charge for any of our services, so it's all free.


Debby Sharma: There are levels at the landmark, each level as a specific color, what do they denote?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): In the Green Lantern comics there was a story line around 2009-2010 that created several different types of Lanterns beyond the green variety. The story was about the "emotional spectrum" associated with each type of Lantern. The Green Lanterns operate on the emotion of willpower, since their power rings can create anything their minds can imagine. The other spectrum colors operate on different emotions, rage (red), greed (orange), fear (yellow), hope (blue), compassion (indigo), and love (violet). There is also black, representing death, and white, representing life.

Debby Sharma: Do you have departments for each?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): We have the entire Lantern emotional spectrum groups represented at http://lanternalliance.com/, along with several other affiliated peacekeeper groups. We are all on the same side and generally we have the same goals, to help Second Life residents, whether it be reporting griefers, helping new residents, or assisting venue owners with security.

Debby Sharma: I was looking at the application of The Green Lanterns, what specific skills does one require to be a member?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): We have a wide range of skills that people can use everything from negotiating with griefers to helping new residents to event security. Talents in scripting, building, creating clothing and everything else associate with SL is welcome. The only requirement we have is that a new member must be 180 days old in Second Life, but we have discussed that and decided that a resident can be an associate member from day one if they want to. We just can't give them a free Green Lantern power ring until they're 180 days old.


Debby Sharma: What would be the new projects for 2015?

Hal Jordan (Green Lantern Excelsior): We have discussed creating a welcome center for new residents, with freebies and notecards and links to helpful websites. The idea is in its infancy at the moment but we have enough members that we should be able to create something of value. We are all about helping people and this is just another way to do that.

Visit Enchanted Alice and Let the M@DNESS Begin!




Cheshire cats and rabbits in hats
A mushroom house, a scurrying mouse
Little doors and lopsided floors
pictures to take and memories to make
The Mad Hatter, awake for hours, just to find the perfect flowers
A March hare, a floating chair
Poses, roses, waterfalls
In her madness, Alice roams the halls
A thought began, all such a long time ago
Zip the line,watch the river flow
A wish here , a dream there, twisted madness everywhere
We're all mad! (or so they say)
Be amazing and have an ENCHANTED DAY!

-Penned by Angellace Havoc



Enchanted Alice is our interpretation of Lewis Carroll's (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson's) Alice in Wonderland with excerpts from The Madness Returns and American McGee all rolled into one!
All this started with a simple idea for a club theme, one imaginative builder, two years of building, rebuilding and lots of tweaking! Countless hours of research and development that has resulted in a parcel that anyone can enjoy!


Originally built for our own pleasure, it was decided that we should share this with the masses. Come fall down that Rabbit Hole, an adventure awaits! Crawl through the Looking Glass, check out our animations (some of the best on the grid), dance with friends on a mushroom, share a marshmallow with the rabbit (bring your own graham crackers n' chocolate for Smore's)! Read a book in our library, get lost in our maze, have a piece of cake with the Mad Hatter, play, relax, many photographic opportunities await, and so much more!

Enchanted Alice is an interactive parcel, we encourage role-play, dress up as your favorite character! Let your visions enhance your experience, have fun, laugh a little, share, be happy, be Enchanted! We are still a little Twisted a little Mad, but we are always Enchanted!

Thanksgiving. What’s the Big Deal? Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

This parody article is back by popular demand,









Thanksgiving is observed in the United States,Canada, Puerto Rico, Liberia and Norfolk Island on the fourth Thursday of November. This year it falls on the 27th day of the month.

The holiday includes a gathering of family and friends for the great feast of the season. Traditionally, tables are laid out like a buffet of turkey, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, gravy and all sorts of other family recipes passed down from generations.

Today, the meal is usually followed by some football, snacks and beer. The whole day seems to revolve around food and entertaining house guests or house hoppin’ for pickings.
But really... what is Thanksgiving about?

I sat down with Pilgrim Pete and Chief Roughneck to ask them about this holiday and get both perspective on how it came about.

Freecilla Kuhn: Master 3D Builder in Second Life- Bimala Tagore Reporting...


 Building plays a vital role in Second Life. Tallstructures, magic cities and warm communities marvel us day after day as an integral part of virtual urban experience. 3D building is a skill to be mastered.  The builders behind these constructions are what we love.  The following lady has paved the way for creative and daring designs in Second Life.

 Freecilla Kuhn has risen to become a well-respected builder. Her work at TRP360 is widely recognized and covers extensive ground ranging from the  official oval office of the President of the United State, the fastest racing cars on the grid, Fun Houses filled with joy and adventure, restaurants with a stunning view of Toronto, rolling hills, dunes, tunnels, and an urban lifestyle with unique shopping.
You can find inspiration simply by visiting them and discovering their special backgrounds.



Interview with Freecilla:

Bimala: In my opinion, 3d builders are “creation spirits”. You have some kind of “divine power” in Second Life because everything we see around us was designed by intelligent and artistic people like you. Please, tell us about your “divine qualities” in Second Life. 
Freecilla: “As an artist I find SL to be a great way to create because it crosses a variety of skill sets. First you can build in 3D, secondly you can create the textures for the 3D builds and third you can then add scripting so others can interact with your creations instead of just looking at them. An added joy is the ability to see others enjoying the environments you have created over and over again that is the best reward.”


Bimala: Definitely you made your work stand out in order to draw the viewer's eye.   Explain to our readers about your finest passion of 3D building and what kind of structures do you prefer to build? 
Freecilla: “In total I have 7 listings in the SL Destination Guide all located in my one simulation. I love building real life places and neighborhoods because I get to go in to detail but my favorite is building the fun house experience. I have 2 fun houses, a small with 25 rooms and a big one with 86 rooms in it. I would like to make more but I cannot afford it or the land I would need. In fun houses I can choose any theme for each room and find a way to add jokes, surprises and freebies. I try to make each room a, "this is so cool" moment for the visitors. Everyone has their favorite rooms and they are all different from each other’s favorites, which are funny.”


Bimala: Enlighten us a little bit more about your Fun Houses from underworld, where you go in, but you don't return. I will never forget that amazing tour!
Freecilla: “The best part of making the Fun Houses is to make it easy for people to find the way so they will not get frustrated but also make each room interesting enough that will be delayed by enjoying the elements in each room based on the theme. Each room has a touch if the familiar, (swing blades as you walk on the ledge or you are a giant in the room or you are as small as a bug) but we can actually be there in the situation and we cannot really get hurt. If people expect to go one way then the other way is usually the right way. Other rooms are just there for us to play in because it is fun, the way out is super easy but people stay a few minutes just to experience the silliness. I think it help to have simple fun added to the more difficult rooms for a more rounded adventure.”

Bimala: I had a great time there. I didn’t know where I was going and I was more into just having good time. I was impressed. I can tell by your  builds where all the fun happens, you take work seriously. The role of professional support you give to your clients is important to note. The quality of your service is handy to mention too.

Freecilla: “When building virtual simulations for others I tell them to make a list of changes and additions needed as often as possible. It is important they understand I can make whatever they want but I have to know in great detail what it is that they want so I can make it. Everything is totally customizable and can be made to match anyone's imagination. This has to be a close personal relationship so they are happy with what they end up with in the end. I also enjoy adding my own details based on the build which can be removed or built upon to enhance the final simulation as they see fit.”



Bimala: I have also visited many of the cities you have set in your profile. I appreciated the quality of your constructions and mostly they are based on real world building. Are you concerned about detail in your constructions?

Freecilla: “I have 20 years of real life experience in interior/exterior design and construction. I believe this helps me a great deal since I know how and why buildings are built the way they are in real life. A small example is when people build a house in virtual reality they never start with a foundation and wonder why something does not look right but they cannot put their finger on it. There are many more examples or these types’ elements one must use when building in 3D. I use the word "detail" quite a bit because it is very important and so much fun in the fine tuning of an environment, it makes a build complete.”


Bimala: I am impressed with Stonehenge. You made a wonderful prehistoric monument for the residents of Second Life to tour. Tell us a little bit more about this mystic build.

Freecilla: “I have seen many builds of Stonehenge in virtual reality; unfortunately they are all built the way it looks now. I wanted the recreate it brand new, the way it looked when it was first built in real life, to scale and full size. After building it I was not impressed because we can fly virtual reality and flying around it made it seem too simple looking so I put it up in outer space with many clickable rides, (planets, comets etc.) all around it so people would have something do, again, instead of just something to look at. Originally when I came to SL they had classic clouds and my Stonehenge was set just above those clouds so they acted as the floor to make it more mystical and so we could not see the ground.”


Bimala: What is your opinion about huge buildings in meshes? Do they work well for everybody?
Freecilla: “For me personally right now the huge mesh builds are a disaster. My computer, like that of many others, is too old so it is not compatible with the new SL viewer so I can only see mesh in its prim form. All walls and floors are flat spheres and furniture is big balls, I cannot see when I go into any mesh building. Maybe one day in the future when I can afford a new computer I will have a better way to reply to this question. I do however get a lot of compliments that my Virtual Toronto has so much detail but there is no lag, this is because it is all made with prims, limited simple sculpts and no mesh, maybe that's why it's lag free.”
Take a look at her beautiful buildings. They always leave us with our mouths opens

Being Thankful in Second Life- Ccoursey reporting....






"Never let the things you WANT make you forget the things you HAVE"


Some of us play Second Life as a way of escaping our real life, some play as a hobby or way to waste time, others may play because that is the only way of socializing with other people because real life has restricted them in some way or another.  What are you thankful for in Second Life?  What has it given you that you?  

Kasslina Moonglow:  The friends I have made.

Savannah Darling:  Friends and family mostly.  SL friends and family are there for you in times when nobody else is.  Personally, friends and fam here have been more supportive and understanding than RL ones.  SL would be nothing without them ya know?

Trixie Morgenstern:  Meeting the people that have enriched my real life.

Irish:  The wonderful people I have met :)


RavenRider:  Freedom.

Daniel the Kid:  The fact we can express ourselves through our avatars, the worlds we travel too, and the friends we make.

Mira Bond: That I can hang out with my friends from all over the world.  Being a at home mum I can't get out much, so this is as close as I can get to going out in the real world right now :)  Also that I can spend time with my guy here and get close to him.

Cry Jewel:  I am thankful for my friends and family on SL.

AZKadellia:  the ability to be me here, in whatever form, skin, hair I desire I guess is the biggest one.


Uncle Bob:  Some of the people I have met.  Friends made.

McBain:  Being able to try anything I can't do in RL, like skydiving from the Eiffel tower.

Violette Ravinelli-McMillan: I'm thankful for my family and husband :)

Gypsylynn Whelan:  The chance to meet Synny.  I don't see how we would have met otherwise.

Lisa:  My friends!

Barusa:  The ability to fly.

Zio:  I can speak with people around the world.  I can be thankful for listening to music and making me wanna be updated with whats happening in the world of music.

Gabriella Rossello:  Granny.  Because she is awesome and she is 82... And she is my rock that gets me through anything.


Mandy Moo Viper-Hallison: I am thankful for all the friends and family I have gained here.  I am also thankful for the creative outlet that SL has given me that I would never have dreamed or thought possible in RL.

Cheetos:  Hmm, for ability to meet new friends.

Kel:  Friends.

Sins A. Smooth Harrington:  I am very thankful for all the people I have met over 7 years time... Most have become good friends even out of SL... The laughs shared with them, MY family.. And thankful for SL who brought me my RL partner... And thanks Sl for making me who I am today in SL :)

Bo Haggard:  My wife and Friends.


For Americans, Thanksgiving is coming up, a time when we are to remember the things we have in our lives that we appreciate.  It is easy to get wrapped in the every day happenings and chores of life, but even little things that we've grown used to seeing as a norm should be remembered.  There is never any telling who isn't lucky enough to have those things we do or when we could lose them.  Enjoy Life, Enjoy Second Life and never waste a moment, because if it isn't what you want then why do it?
