Hand analysis, 1/2 live at the softest casino I’ve ever been at (casino Nova Scotia)
Not sure if any of you have played at casino Nova Scotia in Halifax but it’s borderline hilarious. Also they have a 5/5 plo game running everyday that looks absolutely wonderful if i was comfortable in plo. Entire table is omc. Anyway, OTH. Hero is dealt KK UTG+1 Utg limps and hero makes it 10. 5 callers to the flop and were 6 ways. Flop 6 2 3 rainbow. Utg checks, hero checks, utg +2 checks, button buts 15, utg raises to 43, hero calls, utg + 2 calls, button folds. River 7, still rainbow Utg bets 70, hero tank folds, utg + 2 tank calls. River 6 Utg shoves for 100, utg + 2 calls I’ll post results later. It felt really weird folding kings there and I’m still not sure if it’s the right move. Tight omc range seems so nutted there, and as he limped pre there’s more sets than overpairs in his range, not to mention 45. What do you guys think? Thanks!
Has anyone tried the chicken wings at Trapeze? (Casino Nova Scotia Restaurant)
I see billboards everywhere around Halifax that show advertisements for Trapeze, which is a casual dining restaurant at Casino Nova Scotia. It states that if you have a Player's Card, you can eat at Trapeze on Thursday, which is when they have all you can eat wings for $9.99. It IS the only place in Halifax where you can get chicken wings for such a great price, so it makes me wonder how good their wings really are.
From the coast of Shearwater the lights of Halifax skipped across the Bay mingling with the stars reflecting off the water. As the largest Maritimes city and a hub for Wrestling Culture, Halifax had rapidly reversed it's poor fortunes and now the "Casino Nova Scotia" stood out as a beacon, renovated during the 2030s as part of a "Wrestling Revitalization Program" and blaring music and lights which skimmed along the water until breaking at the northern shores of the greater Halifax-Dartmouth area. Holograms of famed Maritime Wrestlers such as Dave Finlay and Sheamus danced along the Bay, skipping back and forth, adverts for the most recent program by Fundy Wrestling and the UWF. However for Alec Mackinnon the Bay was a blessing acting as the no mans land while the floodlights of Base Shearwater and the lights of Halifax fought a nightly battle for dominance. Throughout most of the year these two bustling locations used for very different purposes would commit a "mock war" fighting for dominance over the Bay. The lights of Halifax shining and in many cases beating those of Shearwater, before fireworks perceived as taunting jeers launched like clockwork from Casino Nova Scotia, signaling the start of a Wrestling Event. For the men of Shearwater, April was an especially active month as it signaled the beginning of "The People's Month" one of the many national holidays instated during the early 20s. And like everywhere across Canada, the people celebrated. And while the roads of the West such as Highway 1 among others would clutter with cars as people made their monthly pilgrimages to the nearest Wrestling Dome, for Halifax a naval city, it was the Bay that filled up with small boats. The lights of yachts, fishing vessels, and pleasure crafts began to dance across the Bay, so many that one could practically walk across a bridge of boats from Halifax to Shearwater. These vessels all holding spectators to the People's Slam Event being broadcasted via hologram onto the center of the Bay. However to those in Shearwater it simply looked like another complication for a night that was leading into morning drills, as there was no chance the several hundred vessels would all have cleared out of the Bay in the morning.
Jay Donahue: Alec, time to switch. I've got next watch.
It took Alec a moment to break from his trance, mesmerized by the lights flirting over the Bay.
Jay Donahue: Alec. Did you hear me? Alec Mackinnon: Huh? Yeah, thanks. Nothing to report, standard stuff really. Jay Donahue: How'd we do this time? Alec Mackinnon: Lost again, as usual. Jay Donahue: Oh well, tough to beat people who actually get to fire off their explosives. Alec Mackinnon: Haha, yeah. Just one time you know? One time i'd like to fire a Sunbeam across the Bay. Jay Donahue: Never gonna happen. But yeah, I get it. Alec Mackinnon: Mmkay well, I leave it to you to carry on the fight.
Alec handed Jay the control for the Southwest Tower's floodlight as he got up and started down the open air stairs of the guard tower. The lights of battle carrying on as Jay took up the fight against the Holographic Wrestlers. Yet just before reaching the final step, the lights within the base which had previously illuminated his step down, went dark.
Alec Mackinnon: Very funny Jay. You can turn the lights back on now. Jay Donahue: That wasn't me...
Alec Mackinnon craning his head to look up towards the tower, quickly realized that he could see the stars. Not just as muddled lights amid holograms, but he could see them clearly. Racing up the steps, he joined Jay in disbelief as across the Bay only the lights of the various civilian boats continued to light the way. Then along the walls of Base Shearwater, red flood lights turned on.
Alec Mackinnon: Did we get scheduled for an emergency drill?
Jay Donahue: No, that was last month.
Alec Mackinnon: Then it has to be an actual emergency. Jay Donahue: Or a mistake by the electrical engineers.
Before Jay could even get a reply, Alec was already down the stairs and halfway to the main building. But without warning the brightest hologram ever witnessed in Halifax appeared over the Bay, illuminating the grounds of Shearwater and the Halifax-Dartmouth coastline both. The figure? Undeniably the People's Champion and National Champion, Maxime Bernier.
Maxime Hologram: Fellow Canadians...it is with deep regret that I announce the fall of the United States of America as we know it.
Alec barely had enough time to stop and turn before the Hologram began speaking.
Maxime Hologram: At approximately 00:00 hours, the "American Coalition" declared unilateral independence and formation of the American Republic. Jay Donahue: Alec...it's happening... Maxime Hologram: Coinciding with this declaration, the American Republic has initiated an immediate and widesweeping invasion of the United States of America, attacking all aspects of the United States.
Alec knew he had to get inside, but his run to the building had slowed as he tried to prolong his stay outside to hear the hologram of Maxime.
Maxime Hologram: Effective immediately, we have entered into Defense Plan One, civilians are being instructed to return to their homes and follow the instructions given under Operation Open Road. Alec Mackinnon: Holy shit... Kyle Dobrev: Alec! Jay! Let's go. Get your asses in here now!
Alec now joined by Jay, quickly ran into headquarters for what was about to be the night of their lives. The hologram of Maxime Bernier now playing on repeat as the remaining lights on the Bay began dispersing.
It had been under two hours since the initiation of Defense Plan One, and Alec Mackinnon and the rest of the Black Watch stood at attention on the wind swept airfields of Shearwater. Behind them, engines of the V-32s carrying members of their sister regiment the East Watch began firing as they prepared to take off. Alec looked onward as the East Watch marched past towards the Hummingbirds, prepared for war. The Colonel of the East Watch stopping just long enough to say goodbye to the Colonel of Black Watch.
Colonel Dahlin (East Watch): First Into Hell. Colonel Van Neer (Black Watch): Six Feet Down.
Colonel Dahlin shook Colonel Van Neer's hand who nodded in farewell, before giving a final salute to the men of Black Watch who still stood at attention, while cold wind whipped their faces. And as the last of the Hummingbirds took off, the runway was quickly filled once more with C130J Super Hercules ready to take the Black Watch.
Colonel Van Neer: Men of the Black Watch.
Colonel Van Neer turned to his men, who still despite the cold, stood at attention.
Colonel Van Neer: Our sister regiment is gone. We will be joining them shortly. You all have been briefed but let's see if you all remember.
Alec stood alongside his brothers in arms, prepared to deliver their answer.
Colonel Van Neer: Who are we? The Black Watch: The Black Watch! Colonel Van Neer: Where are we? The Black Watch: Standing Above Hell! Colonel Van Neer: Where are we going? The Black Watch: Six Feet Down! Colonel Van Neer: Let's get going.
With a final hoorah the soldiers of Black Watch took off running to the C130Js, and with a quick flip of a switch the engines roared to life and the Wings of Hercules touched air. By morning the Bay would be empty, save for the Canadian Atlantic Fleet making it's way out of Shearwater into the open Ocean. And across the country, no pilgrimage would occur.
Hey all, first /craps post. Thought you might like to know about the local game here - Casino Nova Scotia, in Halifax. Been around maybe 3 years now, after about 5 years without any table. Anyway, Mini-craps. The table is about half the size, only two dealers: stick and base. No boxman. A single set of point #, 4-5-6, 8-9-10, with the working stacks and regular center layout up the points. 4 players per side, 8 total. If things get really busy, they have an all but dedicated supervisor, who might help clearing the table, but otherwise doesn't touch cash or chips They accept all the regular bets, but not hop bets, and strangely do have the Big-6/8. $5-500, 3/4/5 odds. Discuss.
I won a national award for work investigating VLT gambling in Nova Scotia, now they're opening a casino on the Native reserve. Golly, my work is full filling.
I worked apart of a team of about a dozen while attending the University of King's College in Halifax as a researcher and co-author of the eventual story. A few months ago, we won a national award for the story, which is pretty danged exciting for someone just starting their career. Sitting in front of the early morning news, I saw a story detailing how the reserve visited by our investigation, where former Band leaders explained how destructive the pervasive VLT addiction has become, has high hopes about a soon-to-be-built gambling centre, which will house dozens of the gaming terminals. They never show that part in Superman comics, when all of Clark's work on and off the pages of the Daily Planet result in little more than his own gratification, no matter how hard he tries. Damn your lies, comics! I trusted you! tldr; good work can be futile except to yourself, and that sucks.
Coronavirus Update 38 – the second wave hits our shores.
Hi all, As you are probably aware that today the government of Nova Scotia announced new measures to help control the spread of Coronavirus. I have included both the provincial and Halifax press releases below but in short: New rules announced for Halifax- the following are closed for at least 2 weeks.
Gyms, yoga, etc
Everyone at a gathering over 5 will be fined $1000 not just the host. Thank you Dr. Strang & Premier for responding to D7 resident’s concerns! I encourage residents to call police non-emergency 902.490.5020 to report public health order violations. I support everything I am hearing from Dr Strang and the Premier McNeil around these new restrictions. Based on other provinces’ slow response, this is more than I expected and is actually pretty much everything I hoped for. You may remember me repeatedly talking over the last 8 months aboutthe Hammer and the Dance. We are now dancing like lives depend on it. Steps like this are what we need to stop this second wave. Before I get to the details I have two things to say. Don’t look for loopholes. Like any other minimum standard, what the government announced today is the least you should do. Do more, if you can. So this means – don’t go the house in Chester, or the cottage, or your mum’s place in the country, if you are lucky enough to have those things. Don’t drive the valley for the day to eat and do some shopping. Don’t skirt the gathering limits. If we all really really stay away from each other we will see the numbers move in the right direction in 10-14 days. But we all need to do our part. No one is special, no one is exempt. That said, do what you have to do. Go to the doctors, go to school, go to work, but wash your hands, wear a mask, maintain physical distance, and install the app on your phone. https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/covid-alert.html And finally as Dr Strang said today “Turn your fear and anxiety around and say ‘what am I gonna do to bring a sense of control for myself and a sense of control for my community’?” We have a lot of people in need in our community. Businesses desperate for an order for delivery, charities who need cash to help those in need, international and even Canadian students who are going to be stuck here for the holidays, seniors and others who are cut off from their families. What can you do to ease another’s burden? I urge you to think about what help you can offer, as you are able, to help support others in our community. Together we will get through this. I had a lot of other non-covid stuff to put in a newsletter but I’m going to hold that until later this week, as much of it is likely to change as events cancel. Be kind, be patient, and take care of each other. COVID APP ISSUE If you use an Android phone, the covidalert app has an important update that you might have to manually install from the Google app store. This is very important because it looks like, despite the little green thumbs-up, the app hasn’t been checking for exposures on many Android systems. The update is supposed to address this. Go into Google Play, click on installed apps, and check to make sure you have the latest version.

Comment on anyone interesting that you've seen around the city. Please note Rule 1 applies so be friendly and respectful. Examples: "Dear guy in the stripped tank top at Scotia Square GoodLife, if you keep squatting like that you'll blow out your knee". "Dear lady on the 29 going to point pleasant, thank you for telling me I was about to sit on a popsicle".
Alright, this is a fairly comprehensive list of all the active launch sites on Earth as of the year 1999, in Overheaven’s alternate history timeline. Realistically, most of these only launch satellites, and the ones that do shoot people into space are probably doing so with capsules, though the more developed countries have fleets of reusable space planes (both manned and unmanned). The overwhelming majority of launches are going to be routine unmanned, reusable rockets sending up supplies or satellites or space station construction materials, and then touching back down on the launch pad like SpaceX's BFR (we get that level of reusable launch vehicle by the mid/late 70's, rather than the late 2010’s - amazing what you can accomplish when two superpowers feel the need to put thousands of nukes in orbit, because the 1967 Outer Space Treaty never happened). Many are run by the military or public-sector space agencies like the ESA, NASA, the Commonwealth Space Program, or Soyuzcosmos (the USSR's NASA counterpart), but I'm willing to bet that at least half (perhaps even two-thirds) of these are private-sector operations, and most non-military public-sector launch sites do private-sector flights as well. Rockets like the Sea Dragon theoretically don't really need launchpads, and while there might be launch facilities which specialize with Sea Dragon-type rockets, I think that the smaller spaceflight companies would just buy one of these rockets, strap the payload on top, and tow it out to sea near the equator for launch. And there's also air-launched sub-orbital vehicles (stuff like Virgin Galactic's White Knight), which I wager could take off from regular old airports on the backs of Boeing 747's or Antonov 124's. Some of these are existing rocket launch sites (mostly for sounding rockets), which I've turned into full-on Cape Canaveral/Baikonur-type facilities, while others are proposed locations for launch sites, and some are just good ideas I figured would work but never appeared in our timeline. Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is enough space infrastructure to serve as the basis for a smoothly-running interplanetary civilization by 1999, with the Internet still in its infancy. In Overheaven’s alternate timeline, the lack of an OST leads to a more aggressive and ambitious space race. Men on on Mars by 1976, men on Venus by 1978, and the construction of huge nuclear missile platforms in orbit by both superpowers. By the late 70’s, space industry was just getting started, and by the 80’s, the “Space Boom” was in full swing, baby. Experimental atomic research, rotating space hotels, medical and chemical research labs in orbit, space manufacturing, solar power satellites, mining near-earth asteroids, space tourism, orbital fuel depots, telecom sats, space casinos, offworld banking, and so much more. By the late 1990’s, the idea of people working and even living in space is still exciting, but it’s also pretty damn normal now. With all these launches, plus material being extracted from Luna and near-Earth asteroids, I think it's perfectly feasible for there to be a few Stanford Toruses, and at least one O'Neill Cylinder, under construction in Earth orbit by '99. And as launch costs continue to plummet, expect the scale of humanity's ambitions to only escalate. And these are just the launch sites on Earth. I don't even know how many orbital launch facilities there'd be by this point - huge space stations building truly-massive vessels in zero-g with all those resources we're shooting up on what I imagine is a daily or even hourly basis; ships like those, built and fueled in orbit, would undoubtedly be able to reach Mars, Venus, Mercury, the Main Belt and Jupiter with relative ease. And everything I've stated here will only continue to grow at a geometric rate as more of the Solar System's resources are harnessed, spaceflight costs continue to drop, and technology continues to improve. And we’re not talking about Overheaven’s current year, which isn’t actually 1999. It’s 2185. Oh, right.

Inviting Restaurant Owners to Offer Food Challenges (Man vs. Food Style)
Restaurant food challenges (Man vs Food style) offer restaurants the chance to capitalize on the over perception of ones own skill (A.K.A. Make you A LOT of money because of science). Halifax offers very few of these food challenges at it's own demise. Alexandra's Pizza in Sydney Nova Scotia created the 6-pound donair challenge and has made national news 2 times and counting (try getting that publicity through your current advertising streams).. Let alone mentioning that it attracted two international professional eaters to the small town! P.s. combined their videos have over 200,000 views, and their page has almost 100,000,000 visits..wow. At a slightly inflated price, offering a challenge "free if completed" is like winning the lottery, or hitting the jackpot at the casino. Except, you are the casino, or the government, and you are really the one winning (even if you give 1 away every 70 tries)! Around 5-6lb's of food far exceeds the average comfortable stomach capacity for most people (3lb's), equates to little food waste, and leads to individuals purchasing a $60 meal vs the $8.99 meal. I will offer consultation to the creation of a challenge upon request. This is an invite to all establishments; get noticed, make money, and offer entertainment at no additional cost. -J
