When thinking of visiting a casino, the first place that probably comes to mind would be Las Vegas, even more so if you live on the Western side of the United States. However, being from the mountains of North Carolina, you may think of Harrah's casino and hotel in Cherokee. This may not be something that you think about when you think of an Indian reservation such as Cherokee. The advantage to visiting Harrah's in Cherokee is that you would be able to not only stay at the hotel and casino, but also venture out and experience Cherokee for yourself, visiting the reservations and even do some trout fishing if it is in season.
There are many outdoor activities that you can enjoy while staying at Harrah's in Cherokee. There are many hiking trails, streams to fish, golf courses to play, and rivers to canoe. This can provide you with more entertainment than you can get from the indoor casino that could provide you with hours of play, if you allow it and have the budget for it. Most of the outdoor activities also provide you with entertainment with little to no expense. If you play your cards right, you may come out with more money than you had going in!
You may choose to play cards, the slot machines or other games that are set up throughout the casino or try them all! It is a good idea to practice the card games before arriving, this is not a place where you want to learn how to play considering your money is at stake and could potentially be lost because you did not know how to play. It is a good idea to try to check out what other games you may be interested in playing before visiting any casino so that you get your money's worth out of the game and hopefully make some too.
There are many different Harrah's casinos to choose from if your closest location is not in North Carolina. In fact, if you do not live near this area, it is probably more likely that you have casinos closer to you, considering that it is illegal to gamble in North and South Carolina. Even if you do live in North Carolina but have already visited Cherokee or are looking to get out of the state, you have many options of being able to get away while visiting a casino hotel. In fact, there is are casino hotels in most major cities in the US, so all you have to do is take your pick!

Running a non-profit organization can be a very rewarding experience, but it can also create some real headaches. The fact that you’re funding will also be limited makes promoting your organization complicated. The good news is that social networking can be a free and easy way to promote the things you’re trying to do to make the community a better place to live.
The odds are pretty good that there will be at least one volunteer who has some experience with social networking; you want to take advantage of these people. The task will make them feel like an important part of your organization, and you’ll be able to focus on the aspects you’re more experienced with. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to simply assume that they’re doing their job, you need to regularly check up on the volunteers and make sure that the networking is happening, and that you know what’s being said with regards to your organization.
While you can control the things said on your official networking channels, it won’t take you very long to discover that fans of your organization will create their own pages. It’s in your best interest to align yourself with these fans.
You need to make sure all participants and volunteers have signed all release forms, including a photo release form. You need to keep these in a safe place. Being able to get your hands on these forms could save you the headache of facing a potential lawsuit if a photo of someone gets posted on one of your social networking sites. You’ll want to keep these release forms forever.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to your non-profit organization will be to use common sense.Read More
I have read several articles on Facebook and discontentment lately, and they tend to ring true. Social networking has a lot of great benefits that are hard to ignore, but there are some definite negatives that definitely make people question whether having an account is even worth it.
One of the reasons that many people use social networking sites is to connect and share with others in their lives. That in and of itself is a great thing. Where it can become a problem is when we spend more time investing in social networking than we do actually interacting face to face with people. Or if we start to look at those we connect with on Facebook, and compare our lives to theirs, even if we aren't necessarily close to them.
Even if we are already content with our own lives, we might see the exotic trips or vacations that our Facebook ?friends? are taking, read about their weekly date nights, or see all the wonderful things that they appear to be doing ? and start to feel restless and dissatisfied with our lives. Even if we are perfectly happy. The old green eyed monster starts to rear its ugly head, and we begin to wish for a life that we only know in photos. We don't know the debt they went into to take that vacation, or buy that house, or the heartache that comes from working to pay for it all instead of being with family.
I have certainly cut back on my Facebook use in recent weeks, and I am happier for it. I am more aware of actually spending face time with people versus screen time. I want to use Facebook in healthy ways, and for the right reasons.Read More
Facebook started out in 2004 as a utility to facilitate Ivy League college kids staying in touch with each other. It exploded into a full blown application for everyone; since 2006 all that is required to join is a valid email address. To date there are approximately 69 million Facebook members around the world. What started as a simple idea to keep friends connected has evolved into one of two main social networks connecting people with one another today.
MySpace currently boasts approximately 110 million accounts. Statistics indicate that almost 230,000 new accounts are created daily; a large amount by any standard. MySpace is the largest social networking website online; on the surface it would appear to be significantly more popular than Facebook. However, researching deeper reveals that most MySpace members maintain more than one account.
The non-restrictive nature of MySpace has led to it being named as #1 of the 25 worst websites ever (PC World). Also with the geometric growth in members, MySpace servers can crash during peak use hours leading to dreaded error messages such as “This error has been forwarded to MySpace’s technical group”. Many users honestly believe that MySpace does not have any technical support.
Facebook is more restrictive than MySpace; Facebook does not allow users to write HTML or CSS whereas MySpace does. Prohibiting the use of HTML and CSS circumvents errors such as those encountered on MySpace. Users are free to comment and upload pictures but they are prohibited from customizing their pages with error ridden code renowned for shutting browsers down and causing computers to freeze.
Another important difference between the two giant networks is security. Facebook strives to maintain strict security whereas MySpace has been somewhat nonchalant in its approach to safety and security. Only after a security breach did MySpace put measures in place to protect its members.
Personal preference is perhaps the deciding factor in determining which social network is best; look carefully at what each has to offer and join whichever meets your needs. Then again, why not join them both?Read More
There was a time when MySpace was the hottest thing around. It seemed like the only thing that anyone could talk about was MySpace and how wonderful it was. At the time, online social networking was still a fairly new concept and everyone loved how easy MySpace made it for them to connect with friends and loved ones.
Everything was perfect, but then Facebook came along. It was easy to use, seemed to be really secure, and college students seemed to prefer it over MySpace. Since the college students loved, they talked their friends and family members into creating their own account. For a while everyone kept up both their MySpace and FaceBook accounts and things still seemed to be okay for MySpace.
At the same time that FaceBook was starting to gain a lot of interest, it seemed like MySpace was hit with a great deal of scandal. First they had to deal with the fact that some of the people who had created accounts were actually pedophiles. This wasn’t really MySpace’s fault, but it did cast a pall over the site. At about the same time, it also ran into trouble with some serious spam issues. The two problems happening so close to one another helped make FaceBook look even more appealing.
The odds are pretty good that in the future MySpace is going to have to shut down. The more social networking sites that are developed, the harder it is for MySpace to attract new accounts. Even worse, many of the people who had MySpace accounts have started to delete them. Right now it seems that the only people who are keeping MySpace going are musicians who find MySpace easier to use than the other major social networking sites.Read More
