Casinos are Important for Tourism

Some cities in the world would not be as nearly as famous as they are or be considered hot
tourist destinations without their casinos. While this is true of many cities, it is especially true for
Las Vegas, located in the state of Nevada in the USA, and Macau, which is located in China.
Both cities are home to some of the largest, most luxurious, and most famous casino resorts
in the world.

That said, not everyone can afford a trip to these sunny destinations. Therefore, if you
happen to be someone who has visiting a hot casino resort such as the MGM Grand or the Venetian Macao

So what’s the color of chameleon dress?

Today we called several employees of our company to determine the color of the dress, and as it was thought, the company split into two parts:

  • 4 employees saw white and gold, or in a pinch white with blue/gold with brown-yellowish…
  • 3 employees saw blue and black!

I was warned about the possible aggression from the “white and gold” camp (and that’s – I don’t want any kind of murder to be done in the company). But unexpectedly “white and gold” were very quiet, and since predicted events do not come true (we have no quarrel), we just decided that the main cause is in different perception of each person. We see all things in different way.

By the way, there are twins in our company, and they (both – female) see colors differently although they have identical-looking eyes.

At home, ...

No need to worry about your cat home alone anymore


Leaving cat constantly alone for prolonged periods of time is a common mistake of majority of pet owners. It is a result of false statement that cats are loners and it is OK to leave them alone.

Unlike dogs, cats usually do not have their daily regime. Instead of that they know your daily routine and stick to it. They know when you get up, prepare breakfast and go to work because consistency is essential for feline. You are, perhaps, the most important part of your cat’s life and it is your duty to make this life more interesting.

It seems that cats usually sleep all day long and do nothing at all, except, maybe gazing on birds from the window sill. However, as the practice shows, cats are bored when left alone and they entertain themselves by bird hunting, for instance...

296km (184 miles) NW of Hobart; 245 km (152 miles) SW of Devonport

Tasmania’s west coast is wild and mountainous, with a scattering of mining and logging towns and plenty of wilderness. The pristine Franklin and Gordon rivers tumble through World Heritage areas once contested by loggers, politicians, and environmentalists, whereas the bare, poisoned hills that make up the eerily beautiful “moonscape” of Queen­stown show the results of mining and industrial activity. Strahan ★ (pronounced

Strawn), the only town of any size in the area, is the starting point for cruises up the

Gordon River and into the rainforest.
