This street was where it all began, from a small railroad stop at the turn of the century to one of the brightest streets in the world.

Further down Fremont Street is the newly developing non-gaming sector of  “Fremont East District” lined with Bars, Coffee shops and places to eat, including newly opened Container Park.

On This Date: July 21, 1948 B-29 Superfortress Bomber Crashed into Lake Mead

July 21, 2015

A Modified B-29 (F-13) crashed in to Lake Mead on July 21, 1948

A Modified B-29 (F-13) crashed in to Lake Mead on July 21, 1948

On July 21, 1948 a Boeing B-29 Superfortress (F-13)  crashed in to Lake Mead. The Bomber was modified from a B-29 into a F-13. The “F” meant that it was modified for photo reconnaissance. It was on a special mission to conduct atmospheric research using an instrument called the “Sun Tracker”.  Painted on the nose of the plane was the words “Cosmic Ray Research”.  The plane operated as high as 30,000 feet down to just about as low as you can fly.

While on mission, the plane was making a very low pass over the Lake Mead surface with what is described, “glass like” when it hit the water.  The plane was traveling at about 250 mph as it crashed and skipping across the surface for over a quarter of a mile.  Five men on-board escaped via life rafts before the plane sank in water over 170 feet deep.  The crew was rescued from the lake six hours later and was instructed not to disclose any details of the flight, its mission or its loss. As the mission was classified, these details were not released until fifty years later.

In 2001, a private dive team searching for the B-29 using side-scan sonar found the wreckage in the northern arm of Lake Mead. Because the bomber lay inside a National Recreation Area, responsibility for the site fell to the National Park Service. Due to the cold deep water, the plane  has been well preserved. Currently the site is off limits to divers.

Sports Betting Las Vegas With World Famous NFL Bettor Jon Price

July 20, 2015

Sports Betting Las Vegas With World Famous NFL Bettor Jon Price from Sports Information Traders

He sits surrounded by computer screens. Those who don’t know any better think that it’s a multi Billion dollar hedge fund operation. Those who do recognize the sports options live odds from the different sportsbooks and the numbers being crunched to spit out what is known as Jon Price’s Delta. Price a reclusive investor has recently taken to the public airwaves for his last few years of professional sports betting.

Pile of Cash

Delta is what the Las Vegas Sportsbook odds are supposed to be according to the Sports Information Traders CEO’s research. His team of expert analysts compare and reviews the current sportsbook odds to the Delta number and add in a little bit of their proprietary mix to come up with the highly probabilistic winner for that game.

Football betting, whether it’s NCAA or NFL Jon Price always thinks of it as a never ending game. The odds are stacked against 99.9% of those playing the game. These big casinos aren’t there for no reason at all. The challenge is always being one step ahead of the oddsmakers. They are smart but you have to be smarter.

The glitz, the glamor, and the money being pumped into the Las Vegas Sportsbooks are a far cry from the early days of back room sports gambling in Vegas. Frank Lefty Rosenthal was popularized in the movie Casino where he started off back east handicapping games and came out west to the worlds most glamorous town to make it even more glamorous.

What “Ace” did for the sportsbooks and casinos was truly amazing. The Riviera and Flamingo shined bright like Bugsy Siegel had dreamed it would. The crowds came in droves not only from southern California but from all over the country. Now days the new star of sports betting is the NFL handicapper who goes by the name of Jon Price from Sports Information Traders. This phenomenon has showcased that he can bring home stacks of money and turn sports gambling into sports investing. In a sense it’s a 180 of the mentality of the olden days of betting. Today you are no longer lined up to place your bets at the counter. Cantor gaming has sophisticated mobile gaming platforms where you can wager from your room or at your Las Vegas, Compound. As long as the IP address says your in Las Vegas, Nevada then your able to place bets.

The future is bright for the sports betting world. Experts alike believe that the 2015 NFL betting season is going to be one of the biggest yet. Each year new rules, regulations, and trades make the first 4 weeks of the season difficult for the bookmakers to accurately pinpoint where the betting lines should be. With experts like Jon Price who have been consistently delivering winning spread picks early in the season for the last 6 years predicts that this year will be no different and with his track record we believe it.
