Discovering Egypt- Debby Sharma Reporting...




A land and an age of Pyramids, Egypt is rich on culture. During the era of 10th millennium BC, the people of Egypt built the most extravagant buildings with highest amount of precision which is yet to be achieved in the modern era. The unsolved mysteries of the Pyramids, the reason why it was built and the tons of stone blocks used to make the most stable structure in the universe. It is said that among all the shapes, pyramids are the only ones that can stand through the changing environments and time.
Egyptian lands spans through the northeast corner to the southwest corner of Africa, a territory of about 390,000 square miles lying with the Nile Valley. With over 88 million populations, it is the 15th most populated country in the world with its majority of the population residing in the Nile Valley.



In Second Life, the Ancient Egypt has been created as close to the Egypt we visualize now in real life and the image of the Egypt that is embedded under the sands of time. At the welcome spot, room transcends you to the land to Egypt. The heliographic walls talk of the incredible knowledge of the past. A view of the tribes that scored the Egyptian Lands is placed in the welcome room.


 It is requested to visit the land wearing their original form of dress. A free outfit for both woman and man is present just at the entrance.  The room is guarded by a door and a greeter welcomes you saying, “EM HOTEP!!” By the door stands the female statue of the gate keeper of the Egyptian Tribe.


Visit the 1/36th scale Giza Plateau, showing all the pyramids and other features of the actual Giza Plateau. Also, above this Plateau, are two 360º panoramic views. There is lot to explore. The bright colors surround the deserted lands with coconut trees and huge statues standing against time. The Nile Valley has the ruins of civilizations that once existed near the Nile River in real life.  You can view their markets, their trade and commerce, their gigantic ships, their docks. The landmark to the Nile Valley is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lower%20Nile%20Valley/221/110/501.
\

The Nile Valley also consists of grand structures like the Giza Necropolis and its great sphinx and the ruins of Memphis Thebes and the Valley of the Kings represent the legacy of archaeological studies over the years. Further the version in Second Life enunciates ancient agriculture, literature and urban settlements with a reflection of hunter gatherers, fishers and grain grinding culture; similar to our rural civilization.


Ancient Egypt of Second Life gives the closest possible view of the culture we have left behind in our past. It is a must visit place, if you would like to be transported to the 10th Millennium BC.

Let’s Take a Trip to Venice in Second Life- Piers Diesel Reporting...


Located on an archipelago in the North-eastern Mediterranean Sea, the city of Venice dates back 1500 years and is made up of 118 flat islands, 416 bridges and 177 canals. Long ago it was the biggest power in that region during the 1300-1500’s. Today, Venice is visited by tourists at an average of 18 million a year and is one of the famous honeymoon spots for couples who want to experience a romantic gondola ride and dine on Venetian cuisine. If you have always wanted to travel to Venice in Real Life but never had the chance, you can do that virtually. You don’t even need a passport to get there!
Venice Second Life has been created cleverly to resemble Real Life Venice with gondoliers, little cafés and the winding cobblestone streets with shops to explore. Here are a few things you can find and do in Second Life Venice.

What is a trip to Venice without Gondola rides?
Yes, it is possible to take a gondola ride at Second Life Venice. It is manually operated which means you navigate the gondolier through the waterways.
Don’t worry if you are not an experienced gondolier. It is not hard to do and you can forget that you are handling it once you sit back and enjoy the ride and views. It is perfect for a romantic date or exploring some realism in Second Life. I would recommend at least trying it to give you the Venice feel.



Rictorante Caffe Saraceno

This is a great place to meet up with friends or your partner and have a meal or even a cup of coffee while talking about your week or day. The service is excellent with attentive staff.  The restaurant overlooks the Grand Canal where you can watch people go by on the water or even by foot on the narrow pavements.  The perfect time to go is at sunset.  The sun’s reflection on the water sets the mood well.



Rialto Bridge

You may recognise this bridge as it is the exact copy to the one in Real Life the Rialto Bridge. This would be the bridge when you TP to the Venice Second Life sim be the landing point. From the Rialto Bridge you are able to wander around the sim easily by foot if you choose to not use a gondolier. It also gives you the perfect bird’s eye view of the sim allowing you to easily take good pics of the sim.
Shopping is a big deal for tourists both in the real world and in Second Life. Rialto Bridge is a good landing point to reach the shops!


Shopping in the Mediterranean

There are quite a few good shops on the sim that offer a variety of products. These shops can be found around the winding cobbled streets along the canal and also in the backstreets. Not all shops are brand names which can be good as you can sometimes find that little unusual gift for someone or even yourself. That is so fun about shopping. It is like going on a treasure hunt.




Saint Marks Square

Here you will find more gondoliers and  shops. Saint Mark’s Square is a perfect spot to take photos of your adventures.  



I would definitely recommend Second Life Venice and have always visited here when I want to take stock of the day or catch up with people in Second Life.  It is definitely worth the visit.

The Vagabond Fugue Ch 7: "Fever Dream"

The 13 Crystal Skulls Hunt Island Brought to you by The SL Enquirer


Now Open to the Public!

Located on a newly discovered island of Takamaka, off the shores of Seychelles Isle is a place of mystery and intrigue. A Pirate ship containing ancient relics from a long lost expedition struck the jagged shores and became shipwrecked. Not knowing what to do with the 13 crystal skulls, pirates frantically carried the sacred treasure chests ashore and hid them throughout the island. No maps were ever found and the pirates mysteriously disappeared only leaving behind traces of their brief visit along with the wreckage and artifacts to be found.

Come explore and unlock the mysterious behind the real 13 crystal skulls and find hidden treasures & ancient relics which you can display in your virtual home or  personal collection.

The hunt begins here:



LEGEND OF THE REAL 13 CRYSTAL SKULLS
The Ancient Mystery surrounding the real 13 Crystal Skulls has intrigued explorers in search of these relics for years.

Each Skull is said to contain special powers and ancient knowledge that bring forth healing to those who are ill. For others with sensitivity to spiritual energy it evokes psychic visions for those who come in contact with them. What you choose to belief is at your own discretion. But for those who have felt the presence of one of these ancient skulls; its energy and mystery cannot be dismissed.

These Unique artifacts have been found in different parts of the World, yet all appear to be created in the same manner; in the shape of a human skull. They vary in sizes and they are made from different types of crystals found deep within the earth.
 Shaman, Explorers, scientists, gemologists and others who have come in contact with these remarkable relics have studied their unique design and wondered about their true purpose. Some reproductions where made and dismissed from being authentic because they showed some modern tool marks.  However, one of the most well know crystal skulls  completely baffles all who have studied “max” in great detail.

Skulls are universal symbol of mankind. The crystal skulls are said to be made from one single piece of crystal with no evidence of primitive tools or modern day machine markings. How they were made remains a mystery but said to have been created by Mystics who used the earth's energy and stored valuable information about humankind within each skull.
According to legend they hold the key to Life and the future of our very existence.  It is said when all 13 crystal skulls are found and brought together, they will reveal all the answers of the universe and save humanity.

A Psychological Test: Tell me your ideal “avatar passenger” in the bus named desire? -Bimala Tagore Reporting…



A “psychological test” is a method used to find out many aspects of our personality through questions or images.  The following test is trying to discover the most “ardent desire” determined by the personal preference of the travelers.

Everybody has dreams, even if they're buried deep inside childhood memories and fantasies. Maybe it's time to revive them or make them come true. After all, nothing is more pleasing than to discover a little more about your personal goals. Whether your aspirations are modest or vast, achieving your dreams is the best route to happiness and satisfaction.
So, what’s your ideal passenger in the bus named desire? Each of these passengers embodies an unconscious dream that may be un-achievable. With it, you will get to know yourself a little better and ascertain your creative potential. This test was set up by Mel Springer Publications who tried to create a connection regarding costumes, appearance, proper posture and psychology.


“Passenger “1”

Within each of you there is a person with a creative capacity. You have to express yourself and your feelings. You need to build self-confidence and develop a more positive sense of yourself.


Passenger “2”

You have a strong desire for freedom and change and at the same time, you are searching for a response to your existential and spiritual longings and desires searching for God.


Passenger “3”

You are a “femme fatale”. You like to seduce and be the focus of universal attention. This profound wish of the fame and importance ashamed you; You think about it. You do! But do you talk about it?


Passenger “4”

You have a nonconformist and youthful personality. Who attends a demonstration, supports a referendum, or even dares to criticize the EU system, but you have a fear of what people will say.


Passenger “5”

You are a calm and easy going person. When problems are revealed, you are looking to soak up the sun and laze on the beach. You also arrive in a place not knowing much about it and basically just rush around.


Passenger “6”

You are a dreamer, nomad, natural and romantic woman, such a profound, sublime and magic love that it appears beyond reality and is almost dreamlike. You love books. They are a shelter of fantasy, an escape from reality.


Passenger “7”

You have exceptional vitality and imagination with a great sense of humor and a prodigious artistic imagination. You are a dreamer whose feet are firmly on the ground. You will hold onto your dreams and work towards their realization.


Passenger “8”

First of all, imagine the scene or mystery you have chosen to help you recollect your thoughts and meditate. You like to do guesswork about what is available. You love exploring the unknown.


Passenger “9”

Sometimes you could be cynical and insensitive person, looking out for only his interest and pleasure. You love to see, touch, smell, taste and hear good things, and are constantly looking outside yourself for satisfaction. Also, you have a contagious laugh and love to "tease”.


All of these passengers have one thing in common; aspiration. It is the need for something more to life that makes people feel whole and unique.  Dreams and fantasies can become part of reality with hard work and dedication towards goals. Happiness doesn’t come easy. We all have to work to obtain it. It is the main goal no matter what type of personality you have. You will never know how far your dreams will take you in life if you do not have goals and aspirations to be happy.

 Which one of these passengers’ best describes you? Use the comment box below to share your dreams and aspirations.

Avie Poll: Sex Sells Now Vs. Then- Becca Drascol Reporting…




As good as the time old adage?

They say sex sells. We use it in advertising, and it's in some form almost everywhere you go.  And in virtual worlds it's no different.  I'm out to explore Second Life and see if sex sells better today in 2015 or if people feel it sold better in SL's beginning days. Being co-owner of a sex/strip club, I know the business and have been a dancer for almost all five of my years in SL. That being said, my experience alone is only a small part of that which intrigues me about how well one of SL's biggest industries works. I'm interested in the differing views I may encounter, so journey with me.

I started out by asking my friend Shae, who is an eight year resident of SL.  With her experience as a dancer and escort in SL, I figured she would be a good person to get an opinion from.

Becca Drascol: Do you think sex sells better now in SL or earlier on?

Shae Bellambi: I think escorting was easier and a whole lot more money earlier.

That was a short and simple reply but an honest one. Next I asked a friend and coworker, Zepron his opinion. He also has experience working in adult clubs in SL.

Becca Drascol: Do you think sex sells better now in SL or earlier on?

Zepron Resident: Earlier on back in 08, 09.

Becca Drascol: Ok one other question; what do you think changed things on how sex sells now vs then?

Zepron Resident: SL was younger then there were more people just finding SL and seen that you could have sex.

I decided to ask Jenwen Walpole owner of Escort Oasis her opinion. Jen is a 7 year old av with a thriving business.

Becca Drascol: Do you think sex sells better now in SL or earlier on?

Jenwen Walpole: I don't think it sells better or worse.  That’s kind of like asking did sex sell better in the 60's or now. What has changed is the nature of what people are looking for. Same as real life I guess.

Last I asked a close friend of mine Brenna Dover her opinion.
Becca Drascol: Do you think sex sells better now in SL or earlier on?

Brenna Dover: Well honestly I think sex sold better earlier on than now because people were newer to SL and just here for one thing mostly... whereas now a lot of people are actually looking for real relationships and paying for sex isn’t all that needed.  I’ve never paid for it.
Point of view or Mindset?
Rather you view the question of how sex "sells" as the literal meaning of the exchange of money for some form of sexual service, or as a concept of media images or even a sexy avatar as something that draws us in; the answer I was seeking was simply people's idea on what sells and if sex sells better now or if it did in the past. Sex and being sexual is raw human nature and therefore it's this writer's opinion that sex does still sell.


When asked, "Do you think sex sells better now in SL or earlier on?" combining the idea of sex sells and second life, of course sent minds directly to the idea surrounding the literal meaning, an exchange of sex for money i.e. escorting or dancing. However, this too answers a bigger idea behind this article. Just combining the words sex and sells puts an image to mind that I refer to selling sex. But as noted above, sex selling can be in the smallest of terms.

 It can be an alluring avatar that draws your attention to stay at one venue or it could be hot pictures of art or otherwise that captivated you to stay put where you are and take the time to give traffic to a venue.  Therefore the old adage sex sells indeed sold you on giving your time to a venue, now didn't it? 


 The whole idea is one intriguing and as old as time. So yes, sex still sells perhaps, not as well as it once may have in Second Life or in other virtual worlds. What catches the eye keeps you intrigued or entertains to the point that you are at least sold on an idea; image or service is what makes sex continue to sell.
