How a Small Chinese Territory Managed to Usurp Las Vegas as the World’s Top Gambling Destination

Las Vegas VS Macau - How a Small Chinese Territory Managed to Usurp Las Vegas as the World’s Top Gambling Destination

Historically, when you thought of the world’s number one gambling city, Las Vegas was likely the king of the gamer destinations. For over 50 years, Las Vegas and its famed strip was the leader in all things gambling and were the clear go-to jurisdiction for the world’s biggest betters. However, in the last decade, a small territory off the coast of China named Macau has made considerable headway and, today has dwarfed the famed Sin City in almost all things gambling related. A detailed comparison of these two world-class gambling cities, found on CasinoSites breaks down the similarities and differences between these gaming superpower regions. According to the statistics, Macau now brings in 3 times the gambling revenue attracts more visitors and is the new home to some of the world’s top casino brands. Here is how the small island of Macau was able to, in less than a decade, move the gambling mecca to Asia.

Fueled By Asian Growth

Likely the top factor in how Macau was able to achieve its dominance can be attributed to the incredible economical growth of the Asian region. Fueled by the trade surpluses and the strongest economy on earth, China has boomed, making its business class some of the wealthiest business people on the planet. This growth has not only been limited to China but many of Asia’s powerhouse production economies are cashing in big as well. This new business class is driving sales of luxury goods, air ticketing, and vacations, along with many other high-end commodities and services. Macau has truly benefited from this growth and has managed to attract these neo-rich classes of Asians to their shores. Furthermore, as Macau is only a few hours by flight to these countries, it allows for more frequent trips than a 20-hour, 1-way journey from Asia to Las Vegas.

Tax Advantages For Players

Another key driver of Macau’s gaming growth has been their zero tax policy on gambling gains. In Las Vegas, an income withholding tax is levied against patrons of 25-30% for Americans, and 30% for foreign gamblers. This can be quite substantial in the event of large wins. Macau, with zero taxes on gambling winnings, is a better situation for the gambling world’s biggest fish.

These are just a few of the ways Macau has managed to achieve its number one spot on the world’s gambling stage. A complete comparison of these two gambling Mecca’s can be found by checking out this comparison from CasinoSites.

10 Beneficial Investments You May Have Never Known About

Investment Ideas: Ten Profitable Investments You've Never Heard Of

Investing your money always comes with a risk. This is why you have to study the options so your money won't go to waste. It is important that you compare them before deciding which one is more suitable for you.

There are investment options that are actually profitable but you may not have heard of before. For instance, you can buy an entire forest. This might seem like a crazy idea, but it works. The timber can be sold for a good price. The land also increases its value over time.

In the event that the economy is not as good as you would have hoped it would be, it is fine. You can just let the trees continue to grow until the economy is back in shape.

Vintage wine is also a good option. As they say, wine tastes better with time. If you decide to invest in vintage wine, you can expect it to increase in value over time. There is a chance of a 20% return as years go by.

These are just some of the investments that could work well for you. Just give them a try and you will realise that the returns are quite high. It might be a risk at first, but once money starts flowing in, you will be grateful you have made this choice.

Countries that Said 'Hasta La Vista' to Fossil Fuels And Use Clean Energy

Climate Change News: Seven Countries that Said 'Good Bye' to Fossil Fuels And Now Use 100% Clean Energy

We Need Clean Energy For Our Future Now

When Trump took office, he promised that he would eliminate all the regulations imposed by former President Obama to prevent oil companies from damaging the environment. Just last week, he signed the order to rescind these actions which were done by the previous administration.

China has done the exact opposite. They have suffered from grave environmental problems in recent years. The pollution level in the air of Beijing and other key cities are beyond what is allowed for people to breathe. As a result, they have taken a more active stance in fighting global warming.

It takes personal experience to make the right move. This is exactly what happened with China. For smaller countries that have eliminated fossil fuels and used alternative energy, they need not reach the point that they have to suffer before doing anything. They know that as a small country, they can be easily wiped out of the map if they don't do actions right now.

The US might try to go the opposite direction and wait until they suffer from massive natural disasters again, but there are several countries that have already progressed. This is great news as we are at a point of no return. If we don't combat global warming now, it could be too late to do anything later.

The Infographic below shows the countries that have successfully eliminated fossil fuels and used alternative energy to power-houses and companies. There should be more countries following the lead.

Vehicle Expenses Driving To Work Over 30 Year Career

The True Cost Of Commuting To Work By Car

Have you ever stopped to consider the cost of your daily commute?

It goes beyond just gas - using a car to get to work is expensive when you calculate all of the cost factors that go into properly maintaining a car for daily use. Costs of driving include depreciation, gas, oil, maintenance, and tires. Not to mention the value of your own time. While the daily cost might seem like a necessary evil, think of the total cost over a span of 30 or 40 years. If you factor in lost opportunity cost, you could be costing yourself up to a $1 million dollars!

When thinking of sacrificing an additional $1 million to a retirement fund, a daily commute becomes a huge expense. A long commute may also cost you more than just money. Think of the time lost and the health risks that are associated. Longer commutes correlate with health risks such as obesity, high blood pressure, depression, and back pain.

This begs the question, how can you avoid a commute to save time, money and improve your health? Perhaps by taking public transportation, biking or even moving closer to the location of your work. Unsure of how much to save for retirement? Or does saving for retirement seems far off? Take a look at this young couple’s story - at the age of 30, they have saved $1million to be financially independent. Once you see the lifetime cost of commuting, you might rethink that drive to work in the morning.
*Depending on your location cost may vary on your commute.

Use The Power Of Writing To Enhance Your Health

11 Science-Backed Ways Writing Improves Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

AS US Republican Congress Writes Off Their Health Bill, You Have The Power To Write For Better Health

For many of us, writing is just a practical tool. We use it to communicate our thoughts, ideas, and experiences with other people. Other times we use it to share information, persuade, or as a creative outlet. Most of our writing today comes in the form of academic work, emails, and social media posts. You may think that outside of these uses, writing may not be able to play a role in your life.

However, considerable scientific research is showing that writing has exciting health and wellness benefits too. Writing, as a personal venture (i.e. keeping a journal), not only helps you become smarter and achieve your goals but can ease what ails you too, whether physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual. The best part is that you don’t need to be a creative genius or an avid journal writer to benefit from writing, though you will join the ranks of some of the most visionary people who ever walked the planet. I’ll bet you didn’t know that Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Frida Kahlo, and Leonardo da Vinci all kept journals, writing down their thoughts, ideas, sketches, poems, musings, and jokes. Even more recently, Peter Jennings from ABC News, the comedian Larry David, and Star Wars director George Lucas have all used pocket notebooks to record some of their best ideas when inspiration strikes.

Writing, in whatever form inspires you, has many benefits. Whether you want a place to write down ideas throughout the day, stories or memories to process, or document, or just a place to sketch and write jokes, by keeping a journal you will be stimulating both cognitive and creative skills promoting memory, good mood, gratitude, achievement of goals, and communication, among others. In the Infographic below, we present 11 science-backed reasons why writing regular is good for your mind, body, and spirit.
