CULTURE: EAGLE'S RAVE: FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO FLY HIGH- Piper SecretSpy Reporting...


Overview of Eagle's Rave

We are at Eagle's Rave, Italian land where there is still a perfect combination between commerce, entertainment, romance and socializing. Here you can find really everything, going from the many fashion shops, to the romance of a beautiful gondola ride along the canal that surrounds the land remembering the beautiful city of Venice, to the adrenaline given by a parachute launch, or simply to meet for a night out. The owner Robert67 Soulstar believed much in his project and with time has been able to create a truly multi-functional land with the help of trusted and talented employees. And today we have had the pleasure of meeting one of his right arm, the manager Mara Klaber, that in this short interview gave us the opportunity to know and appreciate the many shades of Eagle's Rave.
1) How did the idea to open the land has born?
Like so many apparently crazy ideas. Without a single well-defined, easily identifiable reason. A bit for fun, a bit maybe for a touch of boredom you feel when you go wandering around with nothing to do in SL. Or maybe, probably due to the unconscious desire to prove yourself, to show that you can give form to something that could not be found on SL and that could create an idea, very vague at the time, a classy commercial space that could combine "business with pleasure, business with leisure. In short, a place to find classy clothes and accessories, mainly of Italian fashion, but also where you can spend your free time having fun, dancing, playing and especially encountering serious people, with the same desire to spend nice hours in SL.



SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Buying & Selling Lindens with Xchange4LS - Shon Charisma Reporting...


Can buy, sell lindens and become an affiliate through Xchange4LS
Eclectic Charisma News -
I've been in Second Life for almost a year now, and whenever I need money, I just click on the little green money amount on the upper right hand corner of my screen, type in an amount, and hit OK.


VOILA! Money in my account. And with all the clothes and shoes (lots of shoes) I buy on a daily basis, it never dawned on me that maybe this way of buying Lindens didn't work for every SL resident. It also never dawned on me that I would ever want to sell my Lindens (it never seems like I have enough as is) or become an affiliate with a company so that I could make money from people looking to buy and sell Lindens.

And then I met Amanda01 Parx, responsible for marketing and customer service for Xchange4LS.

I felt like a total newbie as I talked to her about Xchange4LS and its benefits to SL residents, but Parx was willing to answer all my questions, and the answers she gave showed me just how important a provider like Xchange4LS can be to SL residents.

MUSIC: :Karter Stonecutter Rocks Second Life! - Sandy Demina Reporting...


Staff Reporter
• Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Karter joined the US Navy out of high school and spent most of his time in Florida, where he teamed up with some fellow sailors and started working gigs at the chief's club and special events. Out of the Navy, he went right into the piano bar circuit for a few years before realizing his heart was in Rock 'N Roll. Now he spends his time touring North America working large rock clubs and festivals, living a rather modest musician's life on a definitely modest musician's salary!

His diverse musical background provides for a unique performance. His piano bar days give him the experience to engage his audience and it's always evident in his performances. But don't let that fool you. Karter can rock with the best! He can adapt to most any styles and venues, which has given him longevity and popularity in the musician communities around the United States.

Whether it be indulging his audience in sweet romantic ballads, old standards or rockin' the house, a good time, a solid performance and some fun lasting memories are what you can expect when you come to see Karter Stonecutter. (http://www.myspace.com/karterstonecutter )

SL POLICE REPORT: Could it be possible that registered sex offenders could be roaming the grid unbeknownst to you? How would you feel if you were to find out that someone you know in SL is a registered sex offender just by doing a little research? Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


Staff Reporter
• Thursday, November 11, 2010

According to Rainn.org (Rape, Abuse and Incest National network), every 2 minutes, someone in the United States is being sexually assaulted. 1 in 6 woman and 1 in 33 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. The sad thing is 60% of these rapes are never even reported to police and approximately 73% know their assailants. These are some very harsh statistics that leave people broken, feeling completely violated and sometimes even helpless, making it hard to heal both mentally and emotionally.

Should these predators that cause so much havoc and fear in their victims even be allowed to have the same freedoms as everybody else and be in SL too?  Can they be rehabilitated or is it a sickness that cannot be treated, leaving them to strike again and again and even prowl our grid.


Patriot Island and the US Military Veteran's Center- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

    Every Veteran's Day, I am a sure bet to pop down to Patriot Island and the US Military Veteran's Center. You should do so as well....

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Patriot%20Island/205/110/30

My husband IRL is a veteran. He has been shot at on four continents. And while I'm a former urban high school teacher and have actually come closer to getting killed than he has, he still has had experiences that I, as a civilian, can't begin to hope to relate to.

Besides, I tend to get very immature when asking him about his experiences in the military. "What's it like to shoot someone? Could you see his facial expression? Have you ever broken someone's neck with your hands?" Yeah, that's about all the support he gets out of me. To be fair to me, he doesn't really seem to ask for/need much support... but a good wife still wants the best for him.

The Greatest Gift- Persia Bravin Reporting...

Big hearted musicians in Second Life have turned into Santa’s little helpers, helping to raise funds for scores of underprivileged children this Christmas.

Christmas comes but once a year and this yuletide, the generous music community of Second Life are hoping their incredible talents and combined hard work will help put a smile on the faces of thousands of children in dire real life situations. A dazzling new Christmas themed CD featuring the work of over sixty SL based musicians is due to be launched on November 1st with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the venerable ‘Toys for Tots Foundation’ which was conceived back in 1947 by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. Over the past 63 years, it has managed to raise funds to purchase a staggering 81.3 million toys valued at more than $487 million and given joy to countless generations of children from impoverished families or those living in care. This is actually the second year that this CD has been produced in world, but the organisers are optimistic that this year, they can break last year’s record of 1062 CD's sold and 1.6 million Lindens raised for this worthwhile cause.

Debuting on Friday November 5 Th with Guest Hiliary Grant, a new talk show emerges on the entertainment TV circuit, rightfully named, Girl Talk. My review is in and all I can say is, it is what it is. I’m going to have to give it two thumbs up!


Staff Reporter
• Monday, November 08, 2010
The new Pulse TV Network is already making its presence felt and they just busted open the doors with something different. The launch of Girl Talk turned out to be a great first live taping because they have that chemistry that works. For those that missed the debut with hostesses Nani Xue and Demoneka Daehlie, you missed a great show that has me looking forward to the next one.
A professional team like that can only be expected when they are in the forefront of evolving today’s SL Talk shows. Behind the scenes the productions team consisting of Filming Techs Paddington Baar and Starlite Schnook, Production Assistant MamiChula Vella, Sound Engineer Tedd Bearsfoot and Segment Producer Prissy Price, took their assigned positions and delivered. The topic was great and the production was well organized and put together from start to finish. 
I was told hostesses’ Nani and Demoneka designed and decorated the set. I found it to be very welcoming with a theme of bold pinks and deep purple on the stage wall with some lighter neutral tones and accents that worked well with the audience seating area. The backdrop of the set had a comfortable seating area display with nice fluffy pillows, blankets and throw rugs over light wood floors. The feel in the room was definitely created by a Woman, in this case two very independent and professional women.
Besides the perfect set, Girl Talk was honored to debut with their official first guest, Comedian, author, poet and entrepreneur Hiliary Grant, also known as DearGabby Lemon.

Nobody is safe from one of the most inconvenient SL Inventory loading issues that plague avies across the grid today. Sometimes recovering your items may take days, a week and for a few maybe never again. This can cause avies to be stuck in their houses or hiding behind bushes trying to figure out what to do with themselves. For the more fortunate, it is a good excuse to go shopping unless you’re broke.

One of the suggestions for fixing this issue usually is to clear your cache and relog. You can do this by going into your preferences. Go to your “network” and “Web” tabs, you will find a clear cache option. Once you have done that, press apply and relog. That might help….
If you are on a laptop, this could cause countless crash landings until your cheap system sorts things out. Another option would be to file a support ticket with Linden Labs and hope for the best. Emergencies like this personal fashion and props disaster has been compared to calling 911 and living in the hood. They will get to a crying cat in a tree before they get to a person beat up on the street.

Women learn about makeup, skin care, nail care, and ways to deal with hair loss such as wigs, turbans and scarves. There are also self-help materials available for men going through treatment.

Monday, October 18th a brand new sim has been inaugurated: "MiC - Museums in Comune Roma Capitale (http://slurl.com/secondlife/MiC/204/156/39 )

This sim has been bought by The City of Roma Capitale through “Zetema”, the company that manages all the museums of the civic circuit.
Marina Bellini (Mexi Lane in SL) who is in charge for the Communication 2.0 of the city of Roma is the general manager of this sim that is supposed to become an important cultural centre where virtual exhibits will replicate l the same exhibits currently displayed in the museums in real life.

A great room will be given to avant-garde metaverse artists, who in turn, will present their own personal immersive exhibits.

Every exhibit will be video recorded and distributed through the Museums' channels and also throughout the Metro and Bus transport systems of Rome :this will be a way to merge together virtual creativity and real life artworks.Furthermore at the Macro of Rome (http://www.macro.roma.museum ), a dedicated space will be set aside for the Virtual Expo currently exhibited at MiC in Second Life.

Lectures, meetings and events will be soon proposed on this sim that is open to all kind of original proposals:everyone is so invited to submit his projects to the Art Director Mexi Lane, either via notecards (within SL) or e-mail: mar.bellini@gmail.com .

An important local agency of Roma Capitale will start in January 2011 to work in the field of education and training using this sim as social platform.

This sim ,a sort of a look to the Past that allows to Live for the Future ,is worth of a visit also for its amazing building who has been set up under Mexiâs supervision:the evocative design of the meeting place has been staged by Rumegash Altamura and Patrizia Blessed, using references from Ancient Rome and of its capital wonders, which have provided in its absolute exclusivity, the major part of the textures for the construction; from the wall of the "Tempio di Giove" under the room of "Marco Aurelio" at the "Musei Capitolini", to the friezes of the "Tabularium", even to the Roman walls of the "Galleria Lapidaria", and to finish with the precious objects of the "Palazzo Nuovo".

The textures and objects have been crafted by skilfull builders and designers utilizing such progams as Blender, Photoshop and Gimp,in order to achieve the most realistic effects possible in the Metaverse. Some details have been by Antosperandeo Allen, Solkide Auer, Maryva Mayo and Flavio Dayafter.

A small part of the island has become the home of the Vestals,the Cave an evocative and fascinating place, where will take place those cultural meetings and events which require a particular emotional attention.

If you need something cool to do this Halloween, and are sick of haunted houses, why not try Haunted Golf?

http://slurl.com/secondlife/KITYKANA/116/230/26

Yours truly took part in a charity golf tournament at the Cheeky Cow Country Club. The charity is to benefit a friend of ours (Sloan)who suffered a fire IRL. He's unlucky in that regard, but he's lucky in that he has at least 100 people who will turn out and donate to help him. Sloan also won the last Green jacket at the tournament, so he's a better golfer than I. I have better legs, but that matters very little in Golf.

SL VENUES:Nicci Winsmore's World of Art and Fashion - Sandy Demina Reporting....


Nicci Winsmore-Trees in light
Staff Reporter
• Monday, October 25, 2010
  Through the experimentation of forms, of colors and of textures all artists try to communicate their emotions and Second Life is a great place for all the ones caught up by their (first) life and who ended up doing something different... to their regrets.

This is the story of one of them, Nicci Winsmore has been enjoying art since she was very young. Her aunt even bought her a sketch book when she was about ten, feeling that she might do something with it.

But her true love was born when a professional photographer visited her high school and talked about his profession. This was it and she thereafter pursued photography as a passion.

Nicci Winsmore (aka Nicole Perrot) loves representing nature through her viewfinder. She has been taking pictures in various parts of the USA including California and New Mexico. She tries to keep her photography as real as possible without using any enhancements except for contrast and light with Photoshop. What you see is mostly what you should get. Her influences are many but her main one is Ansel Adams.  
 
Nicci runs now in Second Life a sim named" World of art and fashion"(http://slurl.com/secondlife/Breezy%20Shores/31/31/21 ).It’s a very friendly place with a great atmosphere, where she lays down a stream-of-consciousness cascade of photographica priced by the yard.Worth a look.All art work in her gallery is original and catchy.

Currently she assembled a mix of new artists as well as old favorites: Fiona Letner, Oxil Zane, Toad Laloix, Ichiko Miles, Soul Yheng, Sandralee Palianta, , Ganso Artis, Giovanna Cerise, Tegan Jenvieve, Carley Noonan, Kyr Art/GeejAnn Blackadder, Artman Diavolo and Madison Arnahan.Nicci of course display in her gallery her works too.
We had a conversation about her (second) life and her passions.

So, the next best thing to money growing on trees is Money Island. It offers visitors different ways to make Lindens. From convenient ATMS and live entertainment, to treasure hunts and fishing for lindens. There is plenty to do here.
