Online Poker Tournament Raises Over $13K for Local Charity Miracle Flights 

 More than 100 poker players nationwide showed their support for Miracle Flights last week as the Las Vegas–based charity hosted its first-ever online poker tournament on Wednesday, August 5. With celebrity guests Oksana Baiul, Brad Garrett, Richard Kind and high stakes poker pro Matt Berkey, the evening raised a total of $13,285. 

All funds will go directly to support programming initiatives for Miracle Flights, the nation’s leading medical flight charity, which provides free plane tickets to families who need help reaching specialized medical care far from home. The organization has also expanded its services in recent months to provide face masks for every flyer, ground transportation to medical appointments and other resources to ease the financial and emotional burden of travel amid the Covid-19 crisis. 

“Miracle Flights typically provides around 600 flights a month, and even during the pandemic, so many families continue to need our services,” says Miracle Flights CEO Mark E. Brown. “Like all charitable organizations, we’re evolving and adapting to a new fundraising landscape. As we do so, we’re incredibly grateful to our presenting sponsor, Findlay Volkswagen, and the generous network of supporters who came together to make this great night possible.”  

Brown joined Faded Spade CEO Tom Wheaton to co-host the virtual tournament, which was live-streamed on Twitch. The HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor also hosted dozens of local players with an exclusive opportunity to participate from a socially distanced, public setting. 

At the end of the evening, one tournament champion received a grand-prize getaway for two to Hawaii, including round-trip airfare to Honolulu provided by Southwest Airlines and a four-night stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel.

Trove of Ice Age Fossils Found in Carson City Backyard Now at Las Vegas Natural History Museum

Trove of Ice Age Fossils Found in Carson City Backyard Now at Las Vegas Natural History Museum

Tom Gordon of Carson City, Nevada was digging a trench for a water line in his backyard when he began to find bones that turned out to be the remains of Ice Age herbivores. Mr. Gordon’s daughter contacted Nevada paleontologist, Dr. Steve Rowland, an Emeritus Geology Professor at UNLV and Lab Manager at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. In June, Rowland, Gordon, and UNLV PhD student, Eric Chameroy, spent a week digging up the fossils. Rowland and Chameroy are now studying and cataloging the collection at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum

Visitors to the Las Vegas Natural History Museum are invited to stop by the Richard A. Ditton Learning Lab to see the fossils and meet the paleontologists who are currently studying them, Monday through Friday from 9am – 4pm.

“The bones of several individual animals are present in the fossil assemblage,” Rowland said, “but almost all of them appear to belong to the same species. The frustrating thing is that we aren’t completely sure yet what species they belong to! We did not recover any well-preserved skulls, which is the most useful part of an animal’s skeleton for identification purposes, so we have not yet been able to unequivocally identify the species.“

Rowland added that the animal whose bones most closely match the shapes of the Carson City bones, is a musk ox―a long-haired, cow-like animal that lives in Alaska and northern Canada. Musk oxen might seem to be unlikely animals to live in Nevada, but there were two species of musk oxen―both of which are now extinct―that lived throughout much of the U.S. during the Ice Age. Fossils of one of the extinct musk ox species―called the ‘shrub ox’―have been found in a cave north of Reno. The other extinct species―the ‘helmeted musk ox’―has never been reported to occur in Nevada, but it is well known from western Utah, Idaho, and Colorado.

“There is no reason the helmeted musk ox wouldn’t also have lived in Nevada,” Rowland said, “and I strongly suspect that we have the fossils that will ultimately show that it was here.” The helmeted musk ox went extinct about 11,000 years ago. The age of the Carson City fossils is not yet known, but a sample has been sent to a radiocarbon lab for analysis. “I’m guessing it will be around 18,000 to 20,000 years,” he said. “That is the age of the Last Glacial Maximum, when the Earth’s climate was the coldest it had been for the past 100,000 years. It would have been a good time for musk oxen to inhabit Nevada, at the latitude of Carson City.”

Rowland and Chameroy will eventually take some of the fossils to the University of Utah Museum in Salt Lake City, to compare them with fossils that have previously been identified to the level of species. They are also planning a return trip to Carson City to continue excavation.

It has not yet been determined where the Carson City bones will ultimately end up. “They should definitely stay in Nevada. Ideally, they should be permanently housed and displayed in a museum close to where we excavated them,” Rowland said. “They are part of Nevada’s natural heritage. They need to be kept where members of the public can see them and other scientists can examine them”

The Las Vegas Natural History Museum began in 1989 with a small group of citizens who knew the community would benefit from the educational resources it could provide. After very humble beginnings, this private non-profit museum is now a Smithsonian Affiliate, accredited with the American Alliance of Museums, and is a federal and state repository for fossils and artifacts. From the desert to the ocean, from Nevada to Africa, from prehistoric times to the present, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum takes visitors of all ages on a learning adventure around the world.

Underground tunnel project created by Elon Musk will transport passengers from the Strip’s newest integrated resort to the Las Vegas Convention Center in under two minutes

On August 5, Resorts World Las Vegas, the US$4.3 billion resort scheduled to open in summer 2021, received an approval by the Clark County Commission necessary to move forward with constructing the resort’s passenger station and tunnel that will connect to the Las Vegas Convention Center campus via Elon Musk’s innovative transportation system. This new tunnel project will swiftly transport passengers between the city’s newest integrated resort and the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) via underground tunnels in all-electric Tesla vehicles in under just two minutes.

Zero Gravity Corporation Announces Las Vegas Stop With Relaunch of 2020 Flight Schedule

 

ZERO GRAVITY CORPORATION ANNOUNCES RELAUNCH OF 2020 FLIGHT SCHEDULE

Updated dates for weightless flights planned across the country

New health & safety plan put in place

 Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) today announced its revised 2020 flight schedule, set to bring weightless experiences to eager adventurers across the country. The eight-city tour will include Long Beach, Calif.; San Jose, Calif.; Seattle, Las Vegas, Newark, N.J.; Washington D.C., Houston and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Along with the new schedule, the weightless flight company has also announced updated health and safety measures put in place to help combat COVID-19 concerns.

“We have spent the last few months working on our new website and determining the safest possible way to offer incredible weightless experiences,” said Matt Gohd, ZERO-G CEO. “For a fraction of the cost of consumer space flight, ZERO-G is paving the way for the general public to enjoy the wonders of interstellar travel without ever having to leave Earth’s atmosphere.”

As at-home consumers begin to seek ways to safely enjoy adventure, the flights offered by ZERO-G continue to be the only FAA-approved opportunities in the U.S. for individuals to experience true weightlessness. The company’s specially modified Boeing 727 is a zero-gravity playroom complete with padded floors and walls – perfect for soaring through the aircraft’s cabin like a superhero – and video cameras to record all the unforgettable moments.

The company’s updated health and safety plan includes pre-flight pulse and temperature checks, as well as the required use of personal protective equipment provided by ZERO-G. Additionally, the company has reduced flight capacities by 30 percent to not only allow for adequate social distancing, but to also create even more room for guests to float freely. During all flights, a full cabin exchange with external air will occur every 3 minutes. To find more details regarding ZERO-G’s health and safety plan, click here.

Valued at $6,700 per person, the ZERO-G experience includes breakfast, flight training, 15 periods of weightlessness, a ZERO-G flight suit, ZERO-G merchandise – including a branded mask, a certificate of weightless completion and photos and video to remember this unforgettable experience.

The updated 2020 schedule can be found below:

  • Long Beach, Calif. (LGB) – August 16
  • San Jose, Calif. (SJC) – August 22
  • Seattle, Wash. (BFI) – August 29 and August 30
  • Las Vegas, Nev. (LAS) – September 5
  • Newark, N.J. (EWR) – September 12, September 13, September 14, September 15 and September 16
  • Washington D.C. (IAD) – September 19 and September 20
  • Houston, Texas (HOU) – October 9
  • Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (FLL) – November 7

 

To usher in a new era for the adventure company, Allison Odyssey (above) was named Chief Operating Officer for ZERO-G, where she will assist in re-introducing weightless flights to a variety of key markets across the country. Having previously worked for the flight company from 2004 to 2007, Odyssey provides unique insight into strengthening the brand and ensuring an out-of-this-world experience in the safest environment possible.

Odyssey most recently worked as the Chief Executive Officer for NewSpace Global, the world’s leading market analysis firm specializing in emerging commercial space opportunities. She also served as the Vice President for Market Development for Space Florida, Florida’s aerospace development organization. Odyssey holds a Master’ of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

The ZERO-G Experience

Each ZERO-G mission is designed for maximum fun. Talented ZERO-G pilots will perform a series of parabolic arcs while flying in a FAA designated airspace. At the top of each arc, flyers soar through the plane like astronauts, perform effortless tricks and flips, watch droplets of water hover before their eyes, release a handful of M&M’s and chase them down like a game of human Pac-Man and more – all while sharing a world known only by a small fraction of the population.

Since operating its first commercial flight in 2004, ZERO-G has given more than 17,000 flyers the opportunity to feel true weightlessness in 27 cities across the country. It has also hosted an impressive collection of celebrities and scientists including Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, Peter Jackson, George Takei, Justin Bieber, Kate Upton, Martha Stewart, The Osbournes, Ashton Kutcher and many others.
