RED BULL CULTURE CLASH

4 Stages. 4 Crews. 1 Winner.

Red Bull Culture Clash, the innovative live music experience featuring four opposing crews on four separate stages, is excited to announce the return to the U.S. this summer with two shows, bringing once-in-a-lifetime music experiences to fans on both coasts.

Red Bull Culture Clash New York took place in Warsaw in Brooklyn on May 19 and celebrated the burgeoning talent leading the city’s underground nightlife scene including hip hop, hyper-pop, reggaeton and hardcore featuring four crews: Half Moon, Club Cringe, Apocalipsis, and CORPUS.

Red Bull Culture Clash features head-to-head performances from four crews over four distinct rounds. Crews and their participating artists are given the reigns to take over each corner of a venue and face off for a four-round bout, bringing big sound, heavy tunes, fierce competition and an exciting roster of special guests, all in an effort to outshine their competition and win over the crowd – because at Red Bull Culture Clash, the crowd decides who reigns supreme.

Red Bull Culture Clash LA

On June 24, Red Bull Culture Clash is coming to Los Angeles to celebrate the Latinx music diaspora across several iconic genres. It will have four crews in four stages:

The first round (and the only round without judging) will be all about warming up, so take the time to get to know each team. But the second round will be judged on the choice of song and wordiness. During the third round, the teams will exchange styles and practices and try to beat each other. If special guests are welcome at any point in the first three rounds, in the fourth, they will be required.

Hot Wheels Legends Tour

Mattel debuted the official Hot Wheels® 1:64-scale die-cast of the 2021 Hot Wheels Legends™ Tour winning 1969 Volvo P1800 Gasser built by Lee Johnstone of the United Kingdom. The first international Tour winner, Johnstone and his daughter, Victoria Upham, attended the global unveiling ceremony in New York City, where their family’s passion project was officially inducted into the Hot Wheels Garage of Legends™, a collection of the brand’s most iconic and celebrated designs existing both in 1:64th and life-sized scale. 

A 71-year-old motor mechanic, Johnstone restored and modified his 1969 Volvo to become a real-life track star, which he races with his wife and three daughters. A winner on and off the track, the P1800 Gasser emerged victorious from a historic 25-stop international Tour spanning 5 continents, joining previous champions including the inaugural 2018-winning 2JetZ™, 2019-winning THE NASH, and 2020-winning 1970 Pontiac® Firebird™, as the next permanent fixture in Hot Wheels history.

The announcement was made by Ted Wu, Vice President and Global Head of Design for Vehicles at Mattel, at the legendary Classic Car Club Manhattan one week prior to the start of the historic fifth annual Hot Wheels Legends Tour presented by Mobil 1. The epic space was reimagined to showcase dozens of examples of how Hot Wheels has influenced culture, ranging from high fashion to NFTs. The 2022 Tour kicks off with virtual live streams in New Zealand and Australia on April 14 and April 21, respectively, followed by the first North American live event in Miami, Florida on April 30.

“The Legends Tour began in 2018 as a way to celebrate and engage the car builder community around the world,” said Wu. “Lee Johnstone’s 1969 Volvo P1800 proved to be a truly awe-inspiring Gasser interpretation that captivated the entire Hot Wheels team. As the first international Legends Tour winner, we can’t wait to share his dream with Hot Wheels fans in more than 150 countries around the world.”

Hot Wheels is an automotive legend, and for generations, every auto enthusiast’s love for cars has begun with Hot Wheels. Since the casting of the brand’s Original 16® vehicles in 1968, Hot Wheels has continued to define itself by creating some of the most iconic cars in the world, both influencing and being influenced by car culture. Beyond the automotive world, Hot Wheels has expanded into pop culture through segments such as gaming, fashion, luxury and film. But, it always remains true to its car culture heritage. Hot Wheels has established itself as an iconic automotive-lifestyle brand, and is now also a major player in the global custom car builder community.

More than 54 years after Hot Wheels launched its original vehicles, the process of transforming life-sized cars into 1:64-scale has changed dramatically while the focus on design continues to be at the forefront. Beginning with CAD (Computer Aided Design) scanning, the Hot Wheels team is able to digitalize every aspect of the 1969 Volvo P1800, before additional rounds of 3-D modeling and sample printing help designers determine the 1:64-scale vehicle’s final shape. Once approved, the final design must also undergo a rigorous series of Hot Wheels track tests to ensure it performs as good as it looks.

Anyone with garage spirit can compete in the Hot Wheels Legends Tour. To enter, please click HERE.

In collaboration with Mobil 1, Walmart and Dickies, the 2022 Legends Tour will culminate in November with a livestreamed Global Grand Finale event to crown a historic fifth champion. As in the past, all fan car submissions throughout the Tour will be judged on the basis of creativity, authenticity and garage spirit.

Red Bull BC One World Final

Elite competitive breakers (‘b-boys’ and ‘b-girls’) from all corners of the globe will descend on New York City, where the world’s most highly anticipated annual breaking competition, the Red Bull BC One World Final, will take place on Saturday, November 12 at the Hammerstein Ballroom at Manhattan Center

With over 60 qualifier events hosted across 30 countries, the competition brings together the best in breaking for an electrifying battle on the largest international stage, with the final event featuring a line-up of 16 b-boys and 16 b-girls. Last year’s Red Bull BC One World Final was hosted in Poland with B-Boy Amir from Kazakhstan and B-Girl Logistx from the USA taking the belt. Both will defend their titles at this year’s World Final. 

Born on the streets of the Bronx, breaking is one of hip-hop’s four foundational elements, as integral to the expansion of the culture as MCing, DJing, and graffiti. Over nearly five decades, the vibrant local art form has broken beyond New York boroughs and become a worldwide phenomenon, evolving into a gravity-defying hybrid of stylized dance and athletic sport now globally recognized, with a sporting debut set for 2024. 

“It fills my heart with pride to see a ghetto-born dance transcend beyond the basketball courts outside my Bronx River Projects window. What felt exclusive to our community is now a global sensation and I see every b-boy and b-girl as an extension of the culture,” shares legendary New York City b-boy Alien Ness, “Breaking will continue to evolve, but will remain rooted in an unexplainable essence that connects us. If we could verbally explain it, we wouldn’t be dancing.” 

In celebration of breaking’s progression, breakers from across the world will reunite in the art form’s birthplace at this unique moment in history to battle for their chance to be crowned Red Bull BC One World Champion. 

“There is something special about the Red Bull BC One World Final returning to New York City,” says Logan “Logistx” Edra, winner of the 2021 Red Bull BC One World Final, and the youngest to ever hold the coveted title. “As the next generation of breakers rise, I feel it’s important to honor breaking’s roots while breathing new life into the sport as it continues to amass international and well-due recognition.” 

To further the development of breaking culture, the Red Bull BC One Camp will accompany the competition, gathering breaking legends and rising stars for several days of workshops, panels, and battles for the wider breaking community. 

This year’s program will be available to stream on Red Bull TV and the Red Bull BC One social media channels. For more information, click HERE.

What is GGPoker’s Good Game Series?

Meta: What is GGPoker’s Good Game Series and is it something that might interest you? We took a closer look at what this tournament offers here.

GGPoker is a fantastic place to go if you want to find out all you can about the world of poker. The ggpoker.co.uk blog is an extensive resource for recaps of events and which ones are coming up. Also, whether it is a chance to gain some tournament experience or just a quick and casual game, they have it all. One event that every new poker player should look out for is the Good Game Series. What is this, and will we see it coming back round in 2022? Let’s take a closer look.

What is the Good Game Series?

The Good Game Series is an annual tournament held by GG Poker. It is usually held a short while after the WSOP Online, but timings can always change and move about – since online tournaments are able to be a little more flexible than ones that need venues booking out.

What makes the Good Game Series so different from all the other tournaments that GGPoker and other operators run? The buy-ins for this particular event are deliberately kept as low as possible. They will always be under $50, but they could be as low as $10 depending on the game you play! This is a great way for even novice players to buy their way into a tournament and begin to compete to see if they like a tournament format.

What is a Buy-in?

Buy-ins are a key part of any poker game. This is the fee that you need to pay upfront to be able to play the game. How much you pay will always vary depending on the game. Some, like the Good Game Series, might have a low buy-in rate of $50 or less. Bigger, high roller games might have buy-ins in the thousands.

The buy-ins of all players are added up and create the prize pot for the game. If you see a game advertised as having a “guaranteed” jackpot, this means that it will always have a threshold regardless of whether or not the number of players and their buy-ins meets that total. So, a poker game with a guaranteed prize pot of $1M will always offer $1M, even if it does not attract enough players and buy-ins to meet this initial threshold.

Why are Low Buy-ins Important?

So, if poker sites and tournament organisers need buy-in to reach the threshold for the prize, is it worth it to hold games with low buy-ins? Yes, these are incredibly important games. For many, they might be the very first tournament that they try out.

After all, you might not want to put down a buy-in of several hundred or even a thousand if you have very little or no tournament experience. There is more of a chance of a loss here. Low buy-in games are less of a risk for their players, while also still providing some great chances to scoop up a life-changing prize. If you want to try out an online tournament for the first time – or maybe you want to try a new poker variation like Omaha – you should take a look at what a low buy-in game is able to offer.

The Good Game Series is something that many players might be interested in regardless of their own skill in poker. These are great games for those who want to get a little tournament experience, but don’t think that they are purely for beginners. The Good Game Series offers opportunities for players of all skill levels. No matter where you stand, you should be able to get a great game or two from it if you choose to buy into a few games.

Nine Things You Didn’t Know About the Paralympic Winter Games

The Olympic Games get a lot of love. However, if you haven’t gotten enough sports action yet, you can watch some of the world’s toughest athletes once again go head-to-head between Friday, March 4, and Sunday, March 13, 2022, during the Paralympic Games. 

The Paralympic Games enter their 74th year this spring. Here are nine things you didn’t know about this spectacular sporting event. 

1. A Veteran Started Them

The original Olympics began in ancient Greece around 776 B.C. The modern Paralympics came about much later. Ludwig Guttman started them in 1948 for World War II veterans with spinal injuries. 

This year’s games feature 736 athletes and 78 medal events. There are 39 events for men and 35 for women. The games welcome trans athletes, making them a model for inclusion for other institutions to follow. It sets a shining example amid a flurry of proposed legislation banning such individuals from competing. 

Some of the games involve mixed-gender events. Wheelchair curling will include 12 such teams, each requiring at least one female. 

Like standard Olympic games, athletes can qualify to compete through several means. They can place at World Championships, regional games or rank, or a world or regional list. They can also achieve a minimum qualification standard with or without the subsequent allocation formula. 

2. Skiing Is the Most Popular Event

Skiing is the most popular event at the Paralympic Winter Games. There are six disciplines: downhill, slalom, super slalom, super-G, super combined and team events. 

Athletes compete in three categories based on their abilities. A results calculation system allows those with various impairments to compete against each other. Racers often reach speeds of 100 or more miles per hour as they race down the slopes, and missing a gate results in disqualification. 

3. The Record-Holder Has More Gold Than Phelps 

Michael Phelps is an impressive athlete, to be sure, with 28 medals. However, he more than met his match in para-athlete Trischa Zorn-Hudson, who tops the charts at 55 — 41 gold, nine silver and five bronze.

In the Seoul 1988 games, Zorn-Hudson won 10 gold medals in 10 events, setting new world records in each one. She won admittance to the Paralympic Hall of Fame in 2012. She currently works as an attorney for the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

4. There Are Subdivisions for Different Challenges

Each para-athlete is as unique as any other. They also have various challenges that make ranking their performance more difficult than watching an instant replay of who crossed the finish line first. 

The Games use the Raza point score system, where judges convert performances to point scores to account for each athlete’s classification. Therefore, a more disabled athlete might beat a less disabled one, even if they don’t throw or jump quite as far. 

5. Beijing Is the First City to Host Summer and Winter

Beijing hosts the Winter Olympics this year, but that isn’t the city’s only distinction. It’s also the first to host the Paralympic Games in both summer and winter back-to-back. 

In many ways, the city is uniquely suited for these games. Athletes with disorders like cystic fibrosis run an elevated risk of severe infection from the COVID-19 pandemic. China’s zero-tolerance approach, strict quarantine requirements and mask rules keep participants safer. Although China has waived the quarantine requirement for athletes, they exist in a “bubble” with daily testing and N95 masks required when not competing. 

The Paralympic Winter Games served up yet another wrinkle during the pandemic — the need for coaches to communicate with their visually impaired athletes. Although officials discourage coaches from shouting to prevent potential spread through aerosol droplets, they may briefly remove their masks to accommodate these participants. 

6. Innsbruck, Austria, Hosted Back-to-Back Winter Games

Who decides where to hold the Paralympic Winter Games? It’s a joint decision between the International Olympic Committee and International Paralympic Committee. Ten cities have hosted the winter games since their inception. 

Innsbruck, Austria, has the distinction of hosting the games twice back-to-back, in 1984 and 1988. The city’s unique geographic location makes it ideal for skiing events, seated in a valley surrounded by towering, snow-capped mountains. Visitors with less athletic aspirations than competitors can take a cable car to one of the enormous peaks and enjoy a spectacular view. 

7. The Paralympic Flame Is Now Eco-Friendlier

Addressing climate change is everyone’s responsibility. Human beings don’t get a pass for special events like the Olympics. Fortunately, the event’s organizers take their sustainability responsibility seriously. 

This year’s Paralympic Winter Games will feature a torch powered by hydrogen. This technology was first implemented in the Tokyo 2020 games to decrease emissions. 

Switching fuels isn’t the only eco-friendly change. Organizers use sustainable materials, such as recyclable cardboard beds, to construct the Olympic Village. 

8. Blind People Can Play Ball

Have you heard of Goalball? If you haven’t, it’s probably because you’re a sighted person. It’s played exclusively by athletes with blindness or visual impairment. 

Athletes must have less than 10% vision to participate. All participants wear special opaque glasses to level the playing field — people who can see shades of gray have no advantage over those who have complete blindness. 

The interesting thing about this sport is watching it — you must remain silent. During game time, only players or referees may make sounds so the athletes can hear and locate the ball. The sport has appeared in the Paralympics with a men’s and women’s division since 1984. 

9. Even the Medals Are Accessible

What’s it like to win a gold medal when you can’t see the metal shine? Athletes with visual impairments will immediately know their rank before announcing the winner. The medals feature one to three lines, indicating bronze, silver or gold. 

Furthermore, the venues go above and beyond to ensure accessibility. They must adhere to strict guidelines regarding ramps and signage to allow everyone to navigate freely. 

Facts About the Paralympic Winter Games 

Athletes come in all shapes, sizes and ability levels. The Paralympic Winter Games allow you to witness some of the best-trained individuals from around the globe compete. 

These participants overcome incredible challenges to practice their sport. Now that you know these nine things about the Paralympic Winter Games, catch all the action starting March 4.

NKR Donor Games

Mimi Mahon, a living kidney donor, will compete in the upcoming virtual National Kidney Registry (NKR) Donor Games deadlift competition, February 16-23. Mahon is the owner and head coach at Mahon Strength & Fitness, which opened its doors in January 2021 in Hamilton, Ohio.

In a general population survey, 80% of respondents felt that donating a kidney would negatively affect their health. Mahon participates in the Donor Games to refute this widely held misconception by showcasing her impressive health and fitness along with other donors from around the country.

Growing up in a family of athletes, Mahon learned early to value sport and competition. In addition to the NKR Donor Games, Mahon has participated in a variety of fitness competitions including CrossFit, Strong(wo)man, powerlifting, and Spartan Races. She played Division I college softball at Cleveland State University and has worked as a strength coach, softball coach, and CrossFit trainer. More than a dozen Donor Games competitors either belong to her gym or were introduced to the competitions by her.

Mahon is married to Ashley Obrest and they have a son, Niko. She is also a triplet with her sister, Ali, and brother, Chris. She also has two older brothers, Nick and Nate, as well as parents Nicki and Dale.

Mahon donated a kidney on behalf of her mother through the NKR’s paired donation program in January 2017. While Mahon was not a direct match for her mother, the NKR facilitated a swap between two incompatible pairs of recipients/donors through a paired donation. The NKR is dedicated to increasing the number of kidney transplants from living donors, improving donor-recipient matches for longer-lasting transplants, and offering protection and support to living kidney donors to make the kidney donation process safer, easier and more convenient. For more information about Mahon, including a video, visit this website. To learn more about the National Kidney Registry, visit this website.

Wisdome LA: Immersive Art Park

Wisdome LA, the city’s first and largest immersive art & music dome park, is back with another exhilarating experience. This free form “art battle” took place at an abstract venue tucked away in the Arts District of Los Angeles. The rules were simple – a group of twelve eclectic artists painted it out till the twenty-minute time period came to an end.

Initial thoughts walking into this dome shaped arena were perplexing. Futons were placed circling the locale for attendees to lounge along with two different stands for guests to purchase snacks and cocktails. In the center of the dome were twelve easels with the paint canvas displaying each individual artist’s name.

As the art battle commenced, the confusion of the crowd grew as they patiently watched these talented artists construct their masterpieces in twenty minutes. Viewers were doubtful at first on how well these paintings would turn out, but proven wrong as the timer winded down. Towards the end of the clock, all artisans had stunning finished pieces.

As the contest comes to culmination, an artist from Chicago, JUJU, took the trophy home as the medalist of this showdown. Wisdome LA is the place to be if you are looking for an enveloping and tranquil experience. Wisdome LA Co-Founder Stephen Powers says, “Wisdome LA’s key concept and main objective is to offer that virtual reality experience without goggles.” To be updated on future festivities refer to their website Wisdome.LA.

Top Tips You Require For You To Start An Online Business In Canada

The looser licensing restrictions in Canada have resulted in the country becoming home to some of the top online casinos in the world. These casinos provide excellent games and generous bonuses – plus, they are all legal to operate in Canada.

Operating an online casino can bring in large sums of money, but it also comes with a high initial outlay of funds. To have a reputable online casino business, you should give bonuses such as wildz bonus code free spins; by doing this, you will good several customers.  Depending on whatever jurisdiction you choose to license your new casino in, launching an online casino in Canada is not much different from opening an online casino in any other country on the globe.

Because of the increasing popularity of internet gambling, establishing an online casino is a highly appealing business venture to explore. While it appears that new internet operators are coming up every other day in Canada, the reality is that launching one is not inexpensive and that the competition may be challenging. So, what exactly is required to get started?

Getting a Canadian Online Casino: What It Takes

A lucrative venture in today’s economy, starting an online gaming business is an enticing prospect. As a result of a global epidemic that has kept millions of people at home, internet gambling has seen significant growth. Profit margins in this industry are astonishing, assuming you have a well-thought-out company strategy and substantial start-up money.

Obtain a Gaming License for your business

When it comes to opening an online casino, one of the most significant fees you’ll incur is the cost of obtaining a license. This is the critical step in the process since it grants you the legal authority to do internet business in one form or another (or more countries). You’ll require one of them for a couple of important reasons (both of which will affect your bottom line).

  • The probability of working with high-quality software vendors that will not do business with quasi-legal or illegal businesses. And you won’t be able to use their products if you don’t have access to their intellectual property.
  • Players are becoming more aware of shady websites and avoid playing at unlicensed online gambling establishments. When a website is licensed correctly, it ensures that the proprietor is upfront, pays taxes, and operates as a site that players can rely on.

Because gambling rules in Canada are often more severe than in other countries. it is feasible to save time and money by incorporating overseas. Foreign jurisdictions that charge between $20,000 and $25,000 per year for a license include Curacao, Costa Rica, and Gibraltar. These jurisdictions are also among the most popular locations to register.

Annually, a prestigious license will set you back at least $35,000. A variety of fees will also have to be paid, as will the provision of financial reporting and the payment of taxes.

Establish a relationship with dependable software providers

The game software itself is the key to the success of your new venture. Therefore, establishing a business relationship with a reliable software vendor is essential. Your new casino’s ability to compete in a highly crowded industry will be aided by high-quality gaming software.

When assessing software suppliers, pay particular attention to the game content, the collaboration conditions, the certifications, and the technical support, which should all be included as part of the whole package of services.

  • Players’ accounts are managed and administered using a platform.
  • Gaming material is integrated into the casino solution.
  • Additional features include technical support, security features, and certifications.

Although the price of a software package can vary significantly based on the platform itself and the terms of the agreement, the cost can range anywhere from $10,000 to more than a million dollars, depending on the vendor and the features you pick.

Select the Games You Wish to Make Available

Selecting a range of games may be a time-consuming and expensive endeavor if you want to provide your gamers with the finest choices possible. While offering additional entertainment alternatives may help you improve your brand and clients, it will cost you more money because a more extensive selection is more expensive.

Choose from thousands of slot machine games and poker, roulette, blackjack, and other table games and card games. All of the games will be code scripts integrated into the platform you have selected. If you desire to specialize in a boutique-style casino, you may save money by offering a limited number of games.

Obtain Payment Methods That Have Been Verified

The most crucial element is that you get compensated! Nowadays, online gamblers demand their favorite sites to accept a broad selection of payment methods (such as credit cards, e-wallets, PayPal, and cryptocurrencies), as well as a diversity of payment methods. Make sure that your website accepts various payment methods, processes transactions quickly, and offers a diverse array of deposit options when taking deposits.

Design and develop the website (and Related Mobile Apps)

Then there’s the actual storefront itself. The website you create will be the first thing your consumers see, and it will serve as your primary commercial tool for the gaming industry.

You may believe that constructing the website yourself would save you money, but when it comes to integrating payment software and banking instruments, DIY can become quite tricky. Despite the expense, having the task done correctly by a contractor will provide you with a piece of mind and will only cost between $1,000 and $5,000 in most cases.

Participate in the Competition

As with any other business, you’ll need to account for expenses such as marketing, personnel, payroll, taxes, and contingency funds, all of which can quickly add up. This is not a low-budget undertaking. And, as is always the case, the more money you put into your gambling enterprise, the more money you stand to make.

Conclusion

When it comes to online casinos, Canadians have a plethora of alternatives. Still, there are many players out there searching for fun, variety, and unique possibilities to satisfy their desire for excitement, thrills, and huge wins.

Take part in a free game

You may also experiment with the bonus rounds to better understand the chances. It’s an excellent technique to determine if you want to invest real money in a particular online slot or whether you should move on.

Learn which online slots are worth your time and money

If you haven’t received any payouts from online slots that you’ve been playing for a lengthy period of time, it’s probably best to move on. Some slots have a higher return to player (RTP) percentages than others, which implies that the house edge is reduced. However, even if you play a slot with a high RTP percentage, you are not assured of winning.

The amount of money you put into an online slot machine does not always imply that your chances of winning at that particular slot will improve. The Random Number Generator ensures that each of your spins has a reasonable probability of winning by assigning a random number to it.

Check out the competition

Competition among online casinos to recruit new players is fierce, but it can also work in your favor if you know how to leverage it. Whether it’s free spins or even casino bonuses, online casinos compete against one another to entice you to join their site.

Do you want to know the main difference between a standard online casino bonus and a terrific one? The first and most important thing to consider is the wagering requirements. A wagering requirement is a multiplier that specifies the amount of money you must wager in order for your bonus to be converted to real money.

Check the pay tables

Prior to depositing any money into an online slot machine, it is recommended that you go through the pay tables and conduct your research on the finest games to play before making your final decision. Each online slot has its own paytable, with variances that might take you by surprise.

These minute adjustments in paytables may have a significant impact on your bankroll over the course of a tournament. Knowing that the online slot machine of your choosing has these additional features might help you increase your bankroll substantially.

Although you might not think to look for it, playing a slot from a reputable games developer can significantly impact your gaming experience. Just like there is a variation in the quality of shoes from Nike and Reebok, the rate of slot games from one supplier to another can vary dramatically.

Some producers, such as Pragmatic Play, are well-known for creating popular slots because they consistently award large payouts. Don’t be trapped playing a slot from a shoddy supplier where you only get substantial winnings in the bonus feature, which is itself challenging to trigger!
