Online Gambling – The Games by Kenneth Bateman

Slots are composed of spinning reels with an assortment of symbols on each reel. Bets are based upon which slot the ball will land when the wheel stops spinning. Bingo!

A small, marble-like ball is placed into a spinning wheel that has red and black numbered slots. The right combination of symbols must be aligned with the payline in order to win. Low house edge is of advantage to the player.

Shooter must roll a seven or eleven on the come-out, or first roll to win or establish a point. Blackjack is played against the house, and not other players.

Online Gambling – The Games

Eleven balls are drawn from a pool of thirty. A two, three or twelve is an automatic loser on the come-out roll.

The total value of two dealt cards must not exceed nine. The hand with the total value closest to nine wins. Face cards are valued at ten and aces at one or eleven at the players option. Keno is one of those games, and is really the casino version of a lottery draw. The slot machine’s reels are lined up on what is known as a payline. There are countless books and online sites detailing game rules, strategies, etc., and it is suggested the player take advantage of these before attempting to play for money.

As you would expect, games of pure chance, with no skills required by the player offer terrible odds.

Poker entails examining your hand and guessing what your opponents have. In Keno a computer randomly selects numbers from a group of eighty and the player must guess which group will be chosen.

Slots are the most popular of the no skills required online casino games, and is a veritable cash cow for the casinos, with the odds firmly stacked in favor of the house. Among the many sub-categories of betting on roulette are: betting on which color the ball will land, betting on any one of the three columns on the roulette table, or betting on a specific set of twelve numbers.

Baccarat

Also known as “twenty-one” as the cumulative total of the face value of the cards cannot exceed twenty one to win. If the symbols are not aligned in a winning combination, you lose.

Philadelphia conducting experiment to save gunshot victims

Zoe Maher, a Temple trauma surgeon, has been giving presentations at community forums.

The Temple surgeon patiently laid out her case, even as she acknowledged the selection process is “like the flip of a coin.” Retrospective studies, she said, have shown that gunshot and stabbing victims given basic life support – such as an oxygen mask, CPR or immobilization – had an 18 percentage-point survival advantage over those given advanced procedures, such as intubation, in an ambulance.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — In all of last year, there were only 22 days when someone wasn’t shot in Philadelphia.

Organizers had to meet certain requirements before launching the study, including getting approval from city and hospital review boards that oversee research on humans, holding community meetings and informing a certain percentage of the public.

Maher, who is white, gave a 20-minute slideshow at a recent meeting in Hunting Park, a largely black and Hispanic neighborhood. “This might be a situation where more isn’t better.”

Philadelphians who don’t want to participate in the study if they are ever wounded can opt out by wearing wristbands indicating their wishes. Nearly 1 in 5 victims died.

Karen Maschke, a scholar at the Hastings Center, a medical ethics think tank in suburban New York City, said the experiment appears ethically sound.

And every resident of or visitor to Philadelphia could become a study subject, though the biggest effect will probably be in the most violent neighborhoods – poor, mostly black sections where people are skeptical of essentially being experimented on.

. They can obtain a wristband by filling out a form online or on paper.

“If this is not a public health crisis, I don’t know what is,” she said.

Joann Taylor, a block captain, retorted: “We’re already gambling with people’s lives.”

Normally, paramedics intubate patients to keep their airway open, and give IV fluids to counteract a drop in blood pressure. Patrick Reilly, trauma chief at Penn Presbyterian Hospital, a study partner, said doctors and society tend to think more is better.

Some paramedics have opted out of participating.

It is being headed by Temple University Hospital’s chief of surgery, Dr. But supporters of the study say that for victims who are bleeding through an open wound, these procedures may cause an increase in blood pressure that can accelerate blood loss and death.

During the study, paramedics treating adults who have been shot or stabbed in the torso will, on a random basis, not insert a tube down a victim’s throat or administer intravenous fluids – two traditional life-saving techniques some doctors say may actually harm such patients.

Yanitza Gonzalez, a councilwoman’s representative, chimed in: “It’s almost like we’re gambling with people’s lives.”

“You’re using people to do this study,” said Charles Lanier, head of a neighborhood revitalization group. It could end early if researchers are able to prove or disprove their theory sooner.

“All of the evidence we have points to us being right, but if we are wrong, we will end the study early,” Maher told the community group.

The study, involving all six of Philadelphia’s trauma hospitals, has been exempted from the Food and Drug Administration’s informed-consent rules, which require research subjects to be told the risks and benefits and to give permission in advance – something not feasible with gravely wounded people.

“Getting to the emergency room, where equipment and experts are waiting, is a really critical window, especially for people with any kind of wound that involves bleeding,” said Maschke, editor of the journal IRB: Ethics & Human Research. Of those victims, nearly 700 were black men ages 18 to 34.

Now, in a bold effort to stem the bloodshed, several Philadelphia hospitals are about to conduct a citywide experiment that will ask: When gunshot or stabbing victims are being rushed to the emergency room by ambulance, could paramedics do more to save them by doing less?

It’s a counterintuitive approach that could test long-held beliefs and change practices at trauma centers across the country.

“If we said we were going to give another medicine, people would tend to go, ‘Let’s see if this works,’” he said. As part of the process, Dr. Her audience was initially dubious.

For a generation, many Philadelphia police officers, instead of waiting for an ambulance, have been taking shooting and stabbing victims to the ER in their cruisers, a practice known as “scoop-and-run.” Data from the longstanding practice helped inform the surgeons proposing this study.

The study is expected to start in the fall and last five years, or until doctors have about 1,000 patients, whichever comes first. Amy Goldberg, who has treated thousands of shooting victims in the three decades she has worked in Philadelphia.

Temple has been working for five years to set up the study. “I hear what you’re saying, but in the interim, you’re still sacrificing somebody to prove which (method) is better.”

A version of this experimental approach is already in place.

Dr. “Sometimes that’s going to mean you can’t stop and ask people if it’s OK.”

Last year, there were 236 homicides in Philadelphia and more than 1,200 shootings, or one roughly every seven hours
