A pretty famous story tells of a man who climbed a mountain, had an unforgettable conversation and returned with 2 tablets of stone. Written on them were 10 commandments or rules that are said to give order to spiritual and earthly relationships. Online dating wasn’t a thing, back in those days. If it had been, I suspect that, while up the mountain, the man would have asked for an additional 10 commandments of dating online. Let’s face it – they’re needed. [Read more…]
Pretty much all of the major brands around the globe have their own logo these days. A good logo should convey the personality traits of the brand or product it is there to promote. That’s why the Platinum Play online casino logo looks similar to a poker chip – you know exactly where you stand with that! Of course, some logos have been design classics that have lasted for decades or more. [Read more…]
Playing games at home on your computer is becoming increasingly popular these days. The video gaming industry is worth millions globally and many expect that it will overtake other forms of media entertainment, such as watching movies, at some point in the future. Some games are easy enough to play using a joypad so you can get away with these ones sitting on your sofa and looking at your TV screen. [Read more…]
When I was asked to pen a piece about the hottest actresses from Canada, I initially jumped at the idea. Then I retracted and I thought about the MeToo movement that has been sweeping the industry and I thought, is this really the right topic to be tackling right now? I reflected and decided that if the topic was handled tastefully, then this article would not incur the wrath of any sensitive readers. Also, I figured that the top 10 list of hot Canadian actresses should not be relegated to the present day, but should include older actresses who shone in their heyday, thus making for a more inclusive and informative list. So, without further ado, I, with the backing of Platinum Play Online Casino, give you the top 10 hottest Canadian actresses to grace our screens, posters, online feeds and fantasies. [Read more…]
Regardless of what Donald Trump might think, the planet is in trouble, and our over-dependence on fossil fuels is partly to blame. They are not safe, they are not clean, and evidence points to them playing a role in climate change (you just need to look out your window on any given day to know it’s real).
That said, the days of fossil fuels are numbered. As Thom Hartmann pointed out in his powerful, almost-prophetic 1998 book, the Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight, there is only so much of the stuff to go around. Like many things on earth, they are non-renewable. [Read more…]
Microgaming, purveyor of all things fun, exciting and coupled with winning opportunities, is releasing yet another video slot to add to an already massive and impressive collection of online casino games. This time round the game is Icy Gems and it’s made by Just For The Win (JFTW), who happen to have an exclusive partnership with Microgaming for distribution rights. It makes perfect sense too, business-wise. [Read more…]
If you’re looking to get from A to B and do so with a minimum of dying along the way, you’ll want to do so via air. Travelling by plane is still the fastest, safest way option, so much so that there really is no competition. Vehicle travel is just silly if you have the option to instead make the journey up in the clouds, with the traffic, pollution and suicidal other drivers far below.
On the other hand, did you know that the interior of an aeroplane is a perfect environment for spreading germs around? Given that a plane interior is sealed and that passengers are packed in like sardines (unless of course you are in Business Class), the potential of germs doing a bit of crowd surfing is through the roof.

For most of us food is something that comes pre-packaged in containers with handy tips on nutrition and weight management. We are the lucky ones; in 2018, statistics show that 820 million people are suffering from chronic undernourishment from a lack of food. This is the reality of our time and something the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations aims to change.
Established in 1945, the FAO is committed to creating a world where zero hunger is possible. In celebration of the founding of the organisation, World Food Day is celebrated around the globe on the 16th of October each year. Since 1981, World Food Day has adopted a theme to create a common purpose and highlight specific areas of action. [Read more…]
A pretty long list of great things is found in Canada. There is the legendary moose, maple syrup, poutine, and Wolverine. That’s the comic book character we’re talking about, not actual wolverines. Yes, he’s Canadian, in case you didn’t know.
So when your list of great things includes the above, it just seems unfair that Canada is also home to some of the greatest professional Poker players too. In fact, as far as renowned players go, the country happens to be lucky enough to have some of the best in the world. That list keeps growing too, so keep your eyes peeled for more pros hailing from the Great White North in the future. Maybe if you put in the hours at a casino, you could see your own name on a list like this one day. [Read more…]
On the 3rd of December 1994 the first PlayStation console was released, raising the bar in home entertainment forevermore and creating a tech and gaming war that would carry on to this day. For those who remember the good old days of playing Tekken 3 with blocky graphics on a square television, there is a sense of nostalgia, steeped in memories of our youth.
As we all know, nostalgia sells, and video gaming companies know it too. Over the past few years, many arcade games and consoles have been re-released, much to the delight of aging gaming fanatics. This yearning for the past is a veritable goldmine for gaming and tech companies, and a marketing dream for those who can harness the power of retro culture. [Read more…]
