Typically, if all three #reels match when they stop moving, the player wins, but other combinations can also lead to a prize (e.g., one cherry). Common #symbols include lemons, cherries, lucky sevens, and diamonds. The amount of the win is inversely related to the probability… of a symbol coming up on the payline. However, there is very little relationship between the number of pictures on the reel and the probability of a particular symbol landing on the payline.… The wins and the player's remaining credits are displayed using a small LED screen (a matrix of little red dots). If the player has won more than the machine can pay out, a light on top of the machine usually flashes, notifying the casino of a big win.

India after 2014 has suddenly been a renaissance to a community labelled as majority, although the term should be indigenous if the agenda has to be fulfilled at the maximum. However, the debate of majority and minority has come forward not recently.
Indians have been fooled by not even firing a shot, and just by the normal put the knife on throat tactics by the Colonizers for almost 4 centuries.
No one amongst us was behind in fueling the burn that started in house of Commons and slowly burnt down the ethos of the holy-land.
However, this rant would never end, but equally sad is the situation of the India which compares its own Ancient Wisdom to Medieval Glory in the backdrop of Modern mindset.

When these ideas are shared, they take on a life of their own as myths. Eventually, these myths are written down in “how-to” books or Web sites. Once written, the #myths seem to become fact. EGMs seem to attract a lot of these myths. The mythification of #slots may be due to the… way the machines are designed. Mythification may be the basis of many of the great works of literature, but, in the case of gambling, it is the source of much misery. In this paper, we will explain how slot machines really work,… and we will discuss and debunk some of the related myths. The paper is divided into five parts. First, we briefly describe the types of electronic games available. Second, we show that problems with human reasoning

A REAL at-home treatment for COVID that actually works - approved by Health Canada & on its way to a province near you. 🥳🧵

HealthCan approved Paxlovid today! THIS is why you avoid infection as long as possible - better options come along. #WorthTheWait…
No more conspiracies about how Canada doesn't look for treatment options. There are 91 approved clinical trials in Canada for treatments (beyond vaccines). And more worldwide. This is just one of the better results.…
This antiviral treatment is special because it comes in pill-form, taken for mild-moderate COVID symptoms at home. It reduces the likelihood of hospitalization by about 90%. Aside from the benefits to patients who have less severe disease, this can reduce hospital strain.

•14% of aces said they’d rather not discuss it.

These machines are inexpensive to run compared to roulette or #blackjack games, which makes it possible for casinos to offer low-stakes #betting to a large number of customers. As a result, they have become the most profitable form of gambling.… A recent report from Statistics Canada (2003) indicates that EGMs outside of casinos (e.g., video lottery terminals (VLTs) in bars and slot machines at racetracks) took in a total of $4.5 billion in 2002,… or 40% of the total revenue from noncharity gambling in Canada. In addition, slots accounted for 80% (KPMG, 2003) of the revenue from casinos in 2002,

#Slotmachines and other electronic gambling machines (EGMs) are #gambling devices that offer a variety of games. They are inexpensive to run, which makes it possible for casinos to offer low-stakes betting to a large number of customers.… As a result, they have become the most profitable form of gambling. EGMs are found at casinos, on cruise boats, at racetracks, at local bars, and even at corner stores.… Slot machines and other EGMs seem to attract a lot of myths. This is partly because of a lack of accurate information on how the machines work and partly due to the design of the machines. In this paper, we will discuss how slot machines really work.

Let me review the pattern of behaviour for every scandal the UCP has been involved in over the past 3 years. It seems the public has a poor memory or doesn’t recognize a clear pattern of behaviour.

So I will demonstrate UCP’s method to quell public outrage.
It’s really quite simple.

Most of the time Kenney, as premier, denies any wrongdoing or corruption or crime has been committed.

Sometimes that is enough. Perhaps other issues are distracting from the issue identified as “requiring handling”.
When a particularly angry public won’t stop opining negatively about an issue, Kenney slips into compliant premier mode.

He never actually admits wrongdoing, but he will throw anyone else, including the CMOH, Ministers or friends under the bus. He accepts his lumps.

I’m asexual and I’ve been told by my own dad that “I always want to be apart of something” and my mom says to me “well at least we know you’re clean but maybe you’ll find the right person someday” when I came out to them. She even suggested that I “go see a doctor.”
5 years ago I came out anonymously as asexual on a post. The amount of sexual harassment, unwanted nudes and rape threats I had gotten scared me into deleting my profile. It took awhile for me to ever go back on social media for my mental health and safety.
Being dismissed, ignored and erased as an ace person is horrific. The constant erasure of asexuality and aromanticism as “just virgins” and being told “you have hormone issues so go talk to a doctor” with being suggested that we “can be fixed” is societal acephobia.

Protocols will offer their OWN bonding service going forward now that there’s been significant brand *impairment*:
Imo, Star Wars protocol already has started the fork trend.
“I just listen to discord and they tell me it’s defensible” would be better box. But I’m trying to be nice.

The Season For Giving And Receiving Puppies
The holidays see a lot of new puppies arriving in families either as a gift or a purchase. However, puppies need training, and can be trained as early as six weeks of age. The sooner the training is started, the more successful it will be.
Potty training, leash training, and even sit and stay can be learned by a puppy. Potty training of course tops the list of priorities as this must start early or individuals are left with a dog that continues to “do its business” inside the home.
