How can online Sports betting help your economy?

If online gambling were legalized in the United States by letting las Vegas based casino's go virtual this would help give our down economy a kick start. In the past few years online gambling has increased by more than 30% each year since 1985 when the first online sports book hit the internet and has grown to more than $800 billion dollars according to (The Gambling News Team) if all winnings of more than $600.00 were taxed by the I.R.S at the time of the winner cashed ticket would give our government 28% of each winning ticked cashed would do wonders for our economy and not to mention Vegas. There should be a ban for all U.S. Citizens to place a bet with any casino that is not approved by the Las Vegas Gambling Commission and with further restrictions on underage gambling on-line by verifying a new account by Drivers License and Bank Account verification by the casino. All non U.S. Clients that bet on-line both onshore or off will be taxed same as any U.S. Citizens.

Let me know what you think I would love your feedback.

Super Bowl

Is there a strategy to Super Bowl squares?

That depends. Is the 10x10 grid numbered 0–9 before you choose your squares, or are the column numbers being selected afterward?

If it’s the former, the simplest strategy is to go with 0s, 7s, and (to a lesser extent) 3s. According to a Harvard study of NFL postseason games, those are the luckiest numbers by quarter. Getting a little fancier, try to choose 0s for the underdogs and 7s for the favorites. Avoid 2s, 5s, 8s, and 9s—thinking about football scores, which most commonly raise by either three or seven, this makes sense.

If you’re choosing randomly, there’s a lot less you can do. To maximize your chance of winning something, try to ensure each of your squares has a unique row and column. To throw a hail mary and try to win big, pick as many squares in a single column as the game allows.

How did geography impact the Greek civilization?

Distance between city-states, clothing, trade, and democracy were amongst some of things that were influenced by the geography of Ancient Greece. The Greek lived in a Mediterranean climate. Winters were mild and wet, and they were able to grow grapes and olives. Summers were warm and dry. Grapes and olives were one of the few plants that could survive droughts. Mountains cover Seventy-five percent of Greece. The land was difficult to cultivate and the sea surrounded Greece. This made trade extremely easy because the Greeks could get what they could not grow. They were also able to bring back innovative ideas from other cultures that they traded with. Because mountains cut off the Greek, this led to the formation of city-states. There was limited interaction and unity of the city-states, which ultimately created river lies amongst them. Such physical barriers prevented a unified Greece. The sea became a vital part of the Greek society. There were hundreds of bays, skilled sailors, and trade of olive oil, wine, and marble for grains, metals, and ideas, technology, and philosophies was common trade items. The Greeks were able adopt the Phoenician alphabet, which later become the basis for all western alphabets. It also promoted democracy. Although the sea encouraged trade, the mountainous terrain enabled absolute rulers to gain power, ultimately leading to the demise of the Ancient Greek democracy and thus creating war mongers.

What do the letters on a scratch off ticket mean?

So far from what I have seen in Washignton State and what I have read on various websites... Letter codes help identify the winning amount of a scratch ticket.

For example:

ONE = $1.00

TWO = $2.00

THR = $3.00

FOR = $4.00

FIV or FVE = $5.00

SIX = $6.00

SEV = $7.00

EGT = $8.00

NIN = $9.00

TEN = $10.00

TWY = $20.00


These are the amounts I have seen and seem to be pretty uniform for every state.... BUT I do know that for the large winners that there are no uniform codes. They have letter codes that are the same as losing tickets. SO PLEASE SCRATCH (actually play the game) AND CHECK ALL YOUR TICKETS. Ya never know!
