Casino games online are like an earthly heaven for those who love gambling. Gone are the days when people who love to gamble have to wait for the vacation, book a flight to their favorite city and enjoy the world of thrill and excitement. Online gambling games provide gamblers far more opportunities than there are available at offline casinos. However, before searching for casino games online, one must understand that not all of the youngsters are eligible to play these tricky games. There is a certain age limit, only those above 21 years of age group are eligible to play these games, whether online or offline.

There are enormous advantages of casino games online; a few of them are shared below.

Games For Free

The most appealing and inviting aspect of casino games online is the fact that the majority of online casinos give you an opportunity to play all gambling games almost for free. As for those who charge, the amount is almost negligible as compared to the vast world of gaming opening in front of you.

Variety

Online casinos offer you a variety of games at your doorstep. There are certain games that are specialty of a region or particular spot of the country, if you search that game on any casino halls online you will be astonished to find out that not just that original game is available, there are a number of versions of that games present online.

Reduced Cost

Casino games online cut your expenses at the lowest level providing you the opportunity to invest your money for your pleasure. Now if you want to play slots, blackjack or any other similar game, you do not have to travel to any other city or state to take the pleasure. Just join the online casino and you can get the pleasure at your doorstep, sitting comfortably in your bed.

Excellent Packages

No offline casino present whether in Macao or in Los Angeles, is able to compete with vast variety of packages available on an online casino. You can get as many games as you can imagine. Just take a look at the board of the applications available at a particular online casino and you can select the one you are most fond of.

Availability & Accessibility

Another major advantage of casino games online is their easy accessibility and the convenience they offer. Unlike the offline casino and gambling world where the process is quite complicated, casino online games are quite easy to access. To enjoy gambling in an offline casino you'll have to invest huge amounts of money and in addition you might have to travel to places that are considered as niche of casinos. Unlike all this fuss and hindrance, casino games online are very easy to access. On most of the online casinos, you just have to sign up and set up an account. Website will offer you sign up balance, have a look on the board of games and start playing your favorite casino games online.

Sprayable Sleep Mist Product Launched

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new type of natural sleep aid that combines scent and sound to beat insomnia is launched today by Calm.com, the California company best-known to date for its fast-growing meditation app & web platform. 

 The ground-breaking new sleep aid, known as Sleep Mist, contains a relaxing scent made from a special blend of lavender and other essential oils, which users can spray on their pillow to aid sleep, while listening to a bedtime story specifically designed to accompany it. Sleep Mist, Calm’s first physical product, is made in California and will be sold starting today, exclusively at Calm.com (https://www.calm.com/sleep-mist), for $29.99. 

 What sets Sleep Mist apart from potential competitors is its unique alliance of aromatherapy and audio therapy to create a deep, immersive experience. Users are able to inhale its calming, lavender-based scent, while listening via the Calm app to a soothing “Sleep Story” written to go with it. Lavender, a main ingredient in Sleep Mist, has been used for centuries to aid relaxation and shown scientifically to improve sleep as part of a bedtime routine. 

 “Insomnia is a huge global issue with over 60 million prescriptions for sleeping pills being written annually in the US alone,” said Michael Acton Smith, co-founder/co-CEO of Calm. “Mixing scent with storytelling is a powerful and natural way to help racing minds drift off to sleep.” 

 Calm has produced two new Sleep Stories on lavender themes to accompany the launch of Sleep Mist. Stephen Fry, the British actor, comedian, and writer, whose many credits include providing the voice-over for all seven Harry Potter audio-books, narrates one new Sleep Story called Blue Gold, set amid the famous lavender fields and sleepy villages of Provence in southern France. 


 Sleep Mist was developed by Calm’s innovation team which tested over 1,000 formulations before arriving at the final, perfect blend of lavender, frankincense, chamomile, and clary sage. “We went to extraordinary lengths to get every detail exactly right, even testing our prototypes on 12 different pillow cases to help create the most peaceful and restful night’s sleep imaginable,” said Calm’s Alexander Will, creator of Sleep Mist.

This marks Calm’s first foray into the world of physical products and follows the successful debut last December of “Sleep Stories”, the first bedtime tales for adults – a popular new section of the Calm app that helps users unwind before bed through not-too-interesting stories, soothing music, and breathing & mindfulness techniques. Calm users now listen to over two million Sleep Stories a month. 

 Sleep Stories have also played a key role in helping Calm pass the landmark figure of 11 million downloads in July, while the company’s revenue is projected to grow almost three-fold from $7M in 2016 to a projected $20M in 2017. Calm.com is free to download and includes over 100 hours of meditations, soothing sleep stories, relaxing sounds and nature scenes. 

ABOUT CALM.COM 


 Calm.com, Inc. is a leader in the meditation space with over 11 million downloads to date and an average of 20,000 new users daily. Founded in 2012 by British entrepreneurs Michael Acton Smith OBE and Alex Tew, Calm has a mission to make the world healthier and happier through the superpower of calm, and eventually become “Nike for the mind”. In December 2016, Calm launched “Sleep Stories”, the first bedtime tales for adults, that have since been listened to over 12 million times. In March 2015, Calm launched a book with Penguin by the same name, which quickly became a best seller in the UK and received rave reviews in the US the following year. It has since been translated and sold in over a dozen countries, including China, Taiwan, Germany, France, and Spain.

Camp Social Work Progams in Third Year

Curated article outlining current issues related to social work programs or having a degree in social work, including how long does it take to become a social worker, etc:

SALISBURY, MD---As 26 children who had recently lost someone dear to them arrived at Camp Safe Harbor on Monday for an opening family party, many of them fought back tears or stood quietly behind their parents. But by Thursday afternoon’s butterfly release and closing activity, laughter filled the air, hugs were freely given, and the only tears were those of not wanting camp to end.

 For the third year, Camp Safe Harbor, a bereavement day camp for children ages 6 to 12 held at Salisbury University, became a safe and loving place for children to heal and open up about their loss.

 Coastal Hospice staff and volunteers and SU Social Work Department’s staff and students joined together to run the annual camp, where counselors experienced in grief support helped the children work through the loss of a parent, grandparent, sibling, or loved one. Fun activities such as weight lifting, video making, support circles, poetry, art, and sports activities helped each child heal in their own unique way.

 Stephanie Moreno of Salisbury sent her two daughters, ages 9 and 10, to Camp Safe Harbor, because they were not only dealing with the loss of their grandfather but also with a recent accident that had left their father with a traumatic brain injury, unable to speak.

 “It’s been quite a journey for us,” Moreno said.  “My daughters have had a lot to deal with in their little lives. Camp appealed to me because I felt like I hadn’t been able to attend to their grief over their grandfather since my husband’s accident.  I didn’t feel like I was able to help them through it.”

 Moreno believes the camp was a deeply meaningful experience for her daughters.

 “They got to see other kids who were grieving in the same way and getting through it. And that it was okay to talk about it. They made friends and felt comfortable sharing their story. They talked with me about what they did each day, how in the weight room, they learned they could lift more weight together than they could by themselves.

 “Plus they had fun. Camp was a nice blend of fun and deep meaning. A lot of hands and hearts came together to make this happen,” she continued.

 Camp organizers from both Coastal Hospice and Salisbury University praised the benefits of the camp and the partnership between the two organizations.

 “Children who have lost someone close to them grieve in a very different way from adults,” Sharon Hutchison, manager for Spiritual Care Services at Coastal Hospice and an organizer of the event, said. “They often find it harder to express their feelings.  At Camp Safe Harbor, by joining other children who have experienced a similar loss, we saw the children work at dealing with their grief, as they were able to talk about it rather than hold it inside.”    

 “This camp is such an amazing partnership between Coastal Hospice and the Social Work Department at SU,” Dr. Kimberly Van Vulpen, assistant professor of social work at the university and a member of the Camp Safe Harbor planning team, said. “The connections that are made between the children and all the camp staff are what makes Camp Safe Harbor so helpful.  The children can arrive each day to camp, share, have lots of fun, and know that everyone there understands a bit of their story.  They no longer have to feel different.”

 By the final day of camp, the friendships and bonds formed during the week were evident. Children consoled one another and exchanged phone numbers.  They wrote messages on one another’s T-shirts and gave doting cuddles to the resident pet therapy dog. 

Camp Safe Harbor will be available again for children in June 2018.  Please contact Coastal Hospice for more information.
