New Year is a great period for online gaming industry

New Year is a great period for online gaming industry. Some people make New Year's resolutions that are all about avoiding fun activities. However, this certainly doesn't apply to everyone. A lot of people are just really eager to try new things for the new year, because they are well aware of the fact that this is the perfect time for a degree of personal reinvention. For some people, this form of reinvention can include going to a new online casino gaming website for the sake of some new forms of entertainment.

After the New Year celebration, people can go mobile at Red Flush online casino and they may try game playing in a lot of other different locations. There are certainly plenty of options for the people who are interested in making the New Year a new year in more ways than one. There are lots of reasons why people might decide to try online gaming following the new year, and the online casino gaming companies are well aware of the associated trends.

For one thing, people might be eager to spend some of the money that they recently earned over the winter holidays. In some cases, they might want to use the money for fun only, and being able to spend it all on games that could potentially earn them some more fun money can be an appealing prospect. In other cases, people want to be able to feel as if they are doing something that is genuinely different in the new year. Online casino gaming is widely available today, and it is certainly going to be easy for everyone involved to be able to make the transition to playing online casino games. Depending on where they live, they can just open up their laptops and they will be able to get started right away.

Of course, some people might make New Year's resolutions that are perfectly in line with online casino gaming. They might feel as if they have been too risk-averse in previous years, and they might have resolved to change all of that. Some people need to avoid taking risks. Other people need to be able to take more risks. It all depends on their behavioral patterns from that point onward and the nature of their lives up to that point. Trying new online casino games at Red Flush online casino can be liberating for people who have felt somewhat restrained in previous years. This could be the year where something really exciting happens for them, and it all started when they decided to get going on their online casino gaming adventures.

Then again, lots of people get depressed after the holidays end and they have to travel back to work. People are usually happier during the holidays than they are after the holidays. Being able to play at online casino gaming websites can help people feel as if they are more connected to the rest of the world again, putting them back into the holiday spirit for the New Year.

How To Play Roulette Games

Live roulette is a casino game which derives its name from the French for wheel. It is played on a wheel where one can place bets on a number or a range of numbers, red or black color and odd or even numbers. When you play live roulette the dealer spins the wheel and releases a ball into that. The ball comes to rest on one number when the wheel stops. That determines whether someone has won or not. Live roulette games come in multiple variations, but the basics remain the same.

Roulette was first played in France and is now played throughout the world where casinos are legal.

As with other live casino games, a player must register with one of the websites to play live roulette games. After the registration, an initial deposit needs to be made to be able to play. Some websites offer an initial amount as registration bonus, but the payout in these sites is relatively lower. For the real thing, it is better to register with some of the better known websites. The odds are certainly better in these sites.

After entering one of the online rooms for live roulette games, a player can place either an inside or an outside bet. Inside bets is better paying where one can bet on a single number, or two adjoining numbers, or three numbers on a single horizontal line, or a square, or a six line or on a trio.

Outside bets are lesser paying where the chance of winning is better. One can bet on any of the numbers from 1-12 or 12-36, or red or black colors on the betting table, or even or odd numbers, or dozen (a bet on the first, second or third of the twelve numbers, i.e. 1-12, 13-24 or 25-36) or column (betting on all the 12 numbers on any three vertical lines of the roulette table) bets. The lower the probability of winning, the higher is the payout.

Websites offer various versions of this famous casino game to attract players, live roulette games are popular. At the end of the day when you play live roulette it is still gambling and can make kings or paupers.

Unlike some of the card games, live roulette online or offline is completely based on one's luck because it is absolutely unpredictable as to where the ball will sooner or later come to rest in a slot.

Many professional gamers online have started playing free roulette games online before they were able to master their strategies. Once you have mastered the game of roulette, for sure you will be able to earn extra income. You do not only enjoy, you also earn from it.

You may not always win when you play in free roulette games online but for sure you will be able to determine the ins and outs of the game. To make sure that you win, you must look for a roulette system that really does the work for you and provides you a steady stream of income.

Neiman Marcus' $66 Collard Greens: Cultural Appropriation Or Good Business?

"Cultural Appropriation" is one of those rare phrases used exclusively in academic circles that has somehow seeped into mainstream black vernacular over the past few years. With the rise of "wokeness", buzzwords like "trigger", "implicit bias", etc. are now tossed about with reckless abandon on Black Twitter anytime a story involving race begins to trend. Sometimes the story doesn't even have to involve race. Often it's simply about a white woman wearing cornrows or faux dreadlocks, a white guy doing an acoustic "cover" of a rap song, or merely food.

No recent story encapsulates this phenomenon to such a comical degree as Neiman Marcus' decision to market overpriced soul food for Thanksgiving.
Only at Neiman Marcus, where you can buy a $395 rabbit-fur jacket for a baby who will probably throw up on it, or a $1,300 tufted sofa for your dog, are collard greens considered “gourmet food.” But there they are, among the holiday offerings: $66 for frozen collard greens, not including $15.50 in shipping.

“I was like, ‘Whaaaat?’” said Nicole Taylor, author of “The Up South Cookbook.” “A lot of things ran through my head. The first was, I need to call and tell my mom that they are selling collard greens for $80.”

She couldn’t help but be amused: “The food that was considered poor people’s food, or Southern food, or black food, is now being advertised and sold by a luxury brand,” she said. “I‘ve heard people from the South say that they were ashamed that their family cooked collard greens.”
You should read the rest of the article, which is full of embedded "woke" Tweets, and quickly dissolves into something you'd typically find on The Onion. I mean, seriously, people really sit around all day upset about leafy greens not named Kale?!?

I'd like to break the fourth wall for a moment and speak exclusively to my black readers. Everyone else... just skip to the comments.
Dear fellow black people,

Enough already. Every instance of corporate America/white people mimicking something closely associated with black people isn't "cultural appropriation". Sometimes it's just people admiring/exploiting something for personal gain. Nothing more, nothing less.

Blackness does not come with residual checks. Please stop expecting people to pay homage. Culture doesn't work that way, and I'm not even 100% sure if I want undesirable food (and all of the health related ailments that come from eating it on a regular basis) handed down from masters to slaves to be considering my "culture" anyway.

How about we make academic excellence our "culture"? How about we make strong families our "culture"? How about me made wealth building our "culture"?

I'd be more than happy to take up arms with you when someone "appropriates" that.

Between now and then, knock it off. This trivial shit sounds so stupid.

Thank you.
Question: Is Neiman Marcus' smart to sell $66 Collard Greens to people rich/dumb enough to buy them, or is this just another case of The Man stealing what's ours?
