What REALLY makes the world go around? GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 3rd October at noon SLT




 GeekSpeak – What REALLY makes the world go around?

We tend to think we know how the world works, but do we?  Does anyone really understand it?  What does the world run on?

We are used to the picture of the world running on oil, but that has only been true for the last century or so.  Before that, maybe it was the possession of fertile land.  What will be the next thing that makes the world work?  Resources?  Energy? 

Come to GeekSpeak and discuss macroeconomics and who or what really runs the planet.  And let’s learn a thing or two about the shady background to the world in which we are all trying to make our living.  Bring your friends!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium at 1pm SLT, if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak - is it time we turned to the sea for resources? Join the discussion Saturday May 11th at 12pm SLT



Technological progress has made it possible to plan for deep sea mining, mining for resources at the bottom of the sea or mining the sea water itself for minerals, for gold or for salt.  We can also use the sea for solar energy platforms.  We can harvest seaweeds and plankton.

What effect will this have on landbased nations? Will such harvesting in international waters be allowed?  Will we change the laws on international waters?  Will there be wars over the use of the sea?  Will seasteading (living on the sea) be allowed?  Will it lead to new sea nations?

What effect will using the sea have on marine ecosystems?  Will it solve our resource problems?  Will it lead to new problems?

Come and discuss the deep blue sea.  Bring a lifeboat.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for new subjects.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: " SL Bar Association Celebrates its First Annual Law Day Event"- May 19th-June 3rd


  On May 19, 2012, the SL Bar Association will kick-off its first annual Law Day event in SL. To highlight the special reach of Second Life around the world, the Justitia Legal Resource Village will celibrate this year's theme No Courts, No Justice, No Freedom with a panel presentation and exhibition drawing attention to the role of courts as protectors of human rights and freedoms around the world. Events will take place May 19-June 3.

"Law Day is a new and exciting prospect for the SL Bar Association and we look forward to reaching across barriers of all kinds to promote the rule of law around the world." noted Sam Courtois, President of the SL Bar Association. Law Day is an annual event, which was originally conceived in 1957 when American Bar Association President Charles Rhynes envisioned a special national day to mark our commitment to the rule of law. The following year, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the first Law Day. Law Day was made official in 1961 when the United States Congress issued a joint resolution designating May 1 as the official date for celebrating Law Day.

As Second Life is a virtual world with a unique ability to break traditional real world barriers, the SL Law Day event has been modified in format in order to reach out to a larger audience.

For a schedule of events, you can visit the Legal Resource Village at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Justitia/126/120/954 or see our Events page listing.
