Episode Description

A huge portion of the Las #Vegas Strip is now closed and shuttered as the Hawaiian Marketplace, Boulevard Shops and Travelodge on the South Strip have all been closed in advance of a new retail and dining experience. This is a huge chunk of Strip frontage just across from City Center and North of the #MGM Grand. What exactly will replace these shops and hotel rooms?

In other #news Wayne Newton has had to cancel some shows due to Covid. Is now your last best chance to see him? We also discuss the alarming downward trend in Vegas hotel prices, how one developer is building an island just outside Las Vegas, Terminal 3 is 10 years old at the Las Vegas Airport and MGM wants to give you prizes for going on a wild quest around Sin City!

Note from Oakland News Now Blog, Zennie62 YouTube, and Zennie62Media: this Oakland News Online Blog video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018, originally on Zennie62Media , Inc.’s Oakland News Now. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. This is what we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a “liked” YouTube video by a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then that YouTube video is uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Online Blog site and Zennie62Media -created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, thus less chance for Oakland News Online Blog, Zennie62 YouTube vloggers to be robbed. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners. This process is entirely within YouTube terms of service, where embedding of videos for use on websites and platforms is allowed and encouraged.
