Adam Burton Ahlborn discusses the top hiking destinations in Oklahoma for the summer of 2020. 

SKIATOOK, OKLAHOMA, USA, July 1, 2020 / — The summer hiking season is in full swing, and Oklahoma is an ideal place to lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails. In fact, local Oklahoma resident Adam Burton Ahlborn explains his state is one of the most underrated hiking destinations in the country. Adam Ahlborn states that Oklahoma is packed with noteworthy hikes, including those heading to lakeside cliffs, waterfalls, and postcard-worthy vistas. Here, Ahlborn discusses the top hiking destinations in Oklahoma for the summer of 2020.

"Oklahoma is home to dozens of breathtaking waterfalls and outstanding views," Adam says. "When many people think of Oklahoma, they think of grasslands, but this beautiful state offers so much more than its rolling hills."

Adam Burton Ahlborn states one of his all-time favorite hikes in the state is in the McGee Creek Natural Scenic Recreation Area. It's located in Atoka, roughly 150 miles southeast of Oklahoma City. This park features a moderate hike to gorgeous fall on the Little Bugabook Trail. The trail follows along the creek for three miles of gorgeous views. Adam Burton Ahlborn explains this is one of his favorites, because swimming is encouraged, and the falls and other natural features are constantly changing throughout the park. He adds that no two visits are the same.

"Another favorite summertime hike of mine is the one heading to the swinging bridge in Greenfleaf State Park," Adam says. "The hike out-and-back to the bridge comes to 5.3 miles, so visitors enjoy a nice workout in addition to the stunning views."

Adam Burton Ahlborn explained that the swinging bridge is one of the most "Instagrammed" spots in the entire state. The trail to the bridge heads from the Ankle Express trailhead through a picturesque forest and along the lake, which is a nice refresher on hot summer days.

Adam Ahlborn added that one of his favorite vistas in the state is on the bluffs at Robbers Cave State Park. This former hang out for outlaws is famous for its scenic San Bois Mountains and serene Carlton Lake. Adam suggests hiking the Mountain Trail to the bluffs from the park's Deep Ford campground. Venture onto the bluffs to gaze over Carlton Lake and snap plenty of photos. The hike out and back is just 3.2 miles, so it can be enjoyed by hikers of a variety of skill levels.

"These are just a few of the dozens of noteworthy summer hikes here in Oklahoma. Best of all, many of them lead to or around bodies of water, so you can enjoy a swim to cool down during or after your hike," Adam Burton Ahlborn says. "We hope everyone has a chance to experience the uncrowded, and many times unhindered, natural beauty of Oklahoma."

Majority Rules Speed Blackjack by Playtech

The leading supplier of gambling services and software, Playtech, has announced the roll-out of a new Blackjack game titled Majority Rules Speed Blackjack.

This is a major milestone for the company”

— Mor Weizer, CEO of Playtech

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, July 1, 2020 / — The leading supplier of gambling services and software, Playtech, has announced the roll-out of a new Blackjack game titled Majority Rules Speed Blackjack, in collaboration with gaming group GVC Holdings. This new Blackjack variant is exclusive to Playtech casinos and GVC and will be available at the start of July.

The B2B Live Casino services section of the iGaming industry has been dominated for years by Latvia-based Evolution Gaming. A company that provides live table games to online platforms via state-of-the-art broadcast studios from countries around the world. In recent years, Playtech has decided to focus on this part of the market and provide new and exciting products that will appeal to table game players.

Majority Rules Speed Blackjack is one such offering that adds a twist to Blackjack gameplay, introducing a unique level of player involvement. Interested parties can look for it on great gaming sites such as or bet365 casino and on other platforms that carry Playtech games. It is a fresh and exciting variant that comes with two game modes, depending on how many players there are at the table. These modes are Majority Rules and Best Strategy.
In Majority Rules, the main idea is that players vote on how to play a given hand. All players poll on Stand, Hit, Double or Split actions, with a vote of 50% or higher activating an action. If the game has fewer players, the Best Strategy mode becomes active. Here, hands are automatically set according to the best mathematical option available.

Playtech’s Live Casino CEO, Edo Haitin states that: “Innovation and gameplay are at the core of our company’s strategy. Majority Rules delivers on both counts.” He further expands that modern players demand a certain level of interactivity, and they want to experience the joys of playing alongside others. “We believe that the combination of engaging Blackjack gameplay and the new community atmosphere will be a big hit with players,” he said.
Head of Live Casino at GVC, Matt Charlesworth added that: “Majority Rules Speed Blackjack captures a real community feeling. The game is scalable. It provides something different, without straying from classic Blackjack with popular side-bets options.”

Playtech has proven that it is making a serious push in expanding into the live dealer arena as well as their global growth. In June, they announced they had received official approval from the NJDGE to launch their products in the Garden State with Hard Rock Atlantic and Bet365.

According to Mor Weizer, CEO of Playtech: “This is a major milestone for the company.” He added that further US expansion is in the cards and that Playtech will look for licensing in more states as the US market is a strategic location essential for company growth.

Innovative Start-up aims to change the way we make new friends and socialize

Gathers Net

Gathers Net -people focused network

Gathers works to bring people together and build communities for an authentic value of human connection.

If you have the space to host social gatherings or perhaps amazing social skills, Gathers offer you the chance to act as a host, or perhaps be a guest in someone else’s home, whatever you feel like”

— Khaled Alkulaib, Founder

SAN DIEGO, CA, US, July 1, 2020 / — A new innovative channel for sharing interests and meeting new people has recently launched in the U.S. Founder, Khaled Alkulaib announced that his company, aims to bring people closer who share similar interests for an authentic value of human connection.

The start-up that recently went live is currently accepting new hosts and their mission is to connect like-minded individuals with others in their city and neighborhoods. makes it possible to meet new people who share similar interests, such as cooking, books, movies, art, and other recreational activities. The site enables users to either host a gathering or perhaps join one. “Meeting new people in a digital and modern era can become difficult, that’s why we at Gathers empower social gathering and link people that share similar interests. We understand the difficulty of finding friends and people that share our interests,” tells Alkulaib.

Gathers is a simple and unique way to connect with people in a new city, neighborhood, or even when you’re only visiting a new destination for a short time. The team realized that many people struggle to put themselves out there, either having limited funds or having the uncertainty of never knowing who would attend or not. The platform works as a social hub, whereby interested users can register and create an account. They can then decide if they want to host an event, or perhaps attend one.

The team has managed to remove the tedious administration and organization needed to plan your next get together. What they’ve achieved, is building a site, whereby users can make a bit of extra money, share their interests with new people, and familiarize themselves with others in their communities.

“If you have the space to host social gatherings, or perhaps amazing social skills, you can now host guests to do fun and exciting activities together. Gathers offer you the chance to act as a host, or perhaps be a guest in someone else’s home, whatever you feel like,” says Alkulaib. The easy registration process on the platform will enable users to have a new experience each time.

Although the site is fairly new, there’s currently a handful of experiences available that new users can join. Currently, users can pick between book reading, cooking, and food, farm fruit picking, watching movies, and playing either live-action sports or video games. Other options may be added soon as the company is just setting out to test the waters.

Existing social media and dating platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Tinder, Hinge, and OkCupid are among the most popular sites available. Although the experience of meeting a new person via one of these sites might not always flourish into a lasting friendship, Gathers has become a way to be more creative, build a human connection with more than one person at a time and also shape valuable friendships.

Gathers’ ability to reshape how we meet new friends, or perhaps share our interests with others is a truly unique method in our modern perceptions. Social media has been lacking traction in its ability to build social networks. To some extent, the most popular social and dating sites can easily become filled with marketing schemes, political ad campaigns, and act as news channels for large media outlets.

“Our goal is to become a one-stop haven, not only for many new people sharing their interests but to some extent foster a global community. Saving time and money is a valuable asset for many people, and Gathers will be available for local and international experiences,” he concludes.

Gathers is redesigning conventional methods for finding like-minded groups of friends.

Synthesizer bliss and harmonic music arrive with The Bodhi Mantra, a meditative music release pulsing with sound and the good vibes of collaboration.

I believe that this whole 'conversation' of music is complete when the listener then becomes involved, creating their own vision, their own experience with the music.”

— Howard Givens

PORTLAND, OR, USA, June 30, 2020 / — That sense of déjà vu you may be feeling is there for good reason, signaling yet another sublime collaboration between Howard Givens and Craig Padilla, (their third) and this time there is a stunning blue vinyl LP to show for it. A complement to any collection, The Bodhi Mantra is a formative work of deeply immersive music — harmonic, somewhat melodic, and occasionally rhythmic — that shares the idea of an individual looking within one’s identity to recognize the power of the soul – the true self, and to continuously reach above and beyond the limitations that we have come to believe in, recognizing the greatness of that existence.

The album is available now on Spotted Peccary Music in vinyl LP disc format, and also in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The LP is a factory-sealed deluxe 140 gram 12" vinyl record of THE BODHI MANTRA, pressed on teal and blue splatter-colored vinyl with premium polylined sleeve, and color insert with liner notes about the music and its inspiration. Myriad consumer sales and streaming links to Spotify, Apple, Amazon, iTunes, Tidal, Deezer and more are available at this link:

With this third collaboration, Givens and Padilla continue a musical journey that follows the concepts introduced in their previous album, Being of Light (2017). Created together in studio last Fall 2019, the duo embrace pure organic tones within their many analog, digital, and modular synthesizers; with intention, this duo has created hypnotic and meditative music to stir the heart, embrace the soul, and free the mind; music that is based on their appreciation of experiencing the perception of consciousness. Delicate, breath-like pulses set an intention of mindful solemnity, punctuated by moments of fulfillment and enlightenment, and underlining discovery of the ultimate relationship with the one true self.

The music, the method and the message, are intertwined, in a way, according to Padilla. “Howard and I continue to grow as a musical duo every time we create music, both solo and as a duo. This new album evolved from our personal journey of music, which is based on our appreciation of the way we have been experiencing the perception of consciousness. This is The Bodhi Mantra. Bodhi is a Sanskrit word translated as 'enlightenment' or 'awakening' which relates to a Buddhist concept, wherein Bodhi is synonymous with the state of nirvana, being freed from hate, greed and ego. The Mantra is the musical expression of this serene offering. We represented this idea in the music by making it sound warm and peaceful; hypnotic and uplifting.”

Givens, who is a founder and co-owner of Spotted Peccary Music, shares “There’s a powerful experience that comes from the synergy of working together especially when those moments of an unspoken, mutual tapping into a stream-of-consciousness flow happens. That’s when the magic really happens, at least from my perspective. I believe that this whole “conversation” of music is complete when the listener then becomes involved, creating their own vision, their own experience with the music. So ultimately it’s the goal of my work, with audio, composition, visual art, etc. and the goal of Spotted Peccary Music, to create and present as transparent an expression of the art form as possible, hopefully inviting a deepening space for the listener to participate in.”

The Bodhi Mantra was mastered by Howard Givens, and the vinyl format arrives inside an exquisite package designed by Daniel Pipitone, with a richly printed jacket and sleeve combination.

Spotted Peccary Music, a Portland-based label, also launched its popular annual Summer Sale on Bandcamp today, which includes The Bodhi Mantra, offering its catalog at 25% off with the code “summer25”. (
