World’s most expensive hotel-casino opens in Las Vegas

Friday, April 29, 2005 

The world’s most expensive hotel-casino ever has opened in Las Vegas, Nevada. The casino, which was designed and built over a period of five years, cost US$2.7 billion to construct. The hotel stands nearly fifty stories above the Las Vegas valley, with a 180-foot tall mountain in front of the main entrance.

Numerous lavish touches contributed to the high expense of the development. The sign in front of the Wynn property has an unusual mechanical design, with a large piece containing the Wynn logo, which can move vertically up or down as different announcements are presented.

“I think it’s going to start a shift of power. It’s been the south for a long time. Things will start moving to the north because of Wynn Las Vegas, Sheldon Adelson with the expansion of the Venetian, the New Frontier — that whole area will become the new hot area of Las Vegas for the next decade or so,” gaming expert Anthony Curtis told Las Vegas KLAS TV.

As the property opened to the public, developer Steve Wynn greeted visitors at the front entrance.

“It’s always fascinating to watch people enter the thing and get their first moment after we open the doors,” Wynn told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Analysts are not too concerned about the cost of the Wynn development. Wynn paid off the cost of The Mirage hotel-casino in 18 months, much earlier than the planned seven years for which the debt had been scheduled for repayment.

“If you remember the opening of The Mirage in 1989, Wynn needed to make a nut of $1 million a day. Everyone thought he was nuts; ‘couldn’t be done,’ they all said,” Las Vegas history department Chairman Hal Rothman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Wynn sold his interest in Mirage Resorts to MGM Grand (which became MGM Mirage and is now run by Kirk Kerkorian) for US$6.4 billion back in 2000, then turned around and purchased the property for the Wynn hotel-casino for US$275 million. The property was previously the home of the Desert Inn.

The hotel has 2,359 rooms, and a few hundred deluxe suites and “parlors” for high rollers. The casino has 1,960 slot machines and 137 table games on a 111,000 square foot casino floor. A Ferrari-Maserati dealership and the Le Reve stage show, featuring a million gallon water tank, round out the expensive offerings.

A round of golf will go for US$500 on the elaborate golf course located behind the main building.

All of these specifications add up to a record construction cost of over one million US dollars per room. Other expensive Las Vegas properties cost a fraction of the price, such as the Bellagio, which cost half the price at US$533,000 per room. The most expensive hotel property in the world was previously the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui, Hawaii, which cost US$775,000 per room.

“Yes, (Wynn) may be in over his head, but then he has found ways to survive before,” Las Vegas professor Bill Thompson told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Several of Wynn’s largest competitors spoke with admiration of the property and looked forward to its impact on Las Vegas.

“I’ve never understood the hand-wringing about something new, especially in Las Vegas and Atlantic City,” Harrah’s Chairman and CEO Gary Loveman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Other casino bosses from the Mandalay and the MGM Mirage had positive comments as well, hoping to pick up some new business from the development.

“It’s a positive in terms of bringing more visitors,” Mandalay Resort Group President and CEO Glenn Schaeffer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“Steve will build a great property and bring new people to town. If we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing, then we’ll pick up some of that business also,” MGM Mirage Chairman and CEO Terry Lanni told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Thousands of visitors gathered for hours in front of the property before it opened. Security guards had to monitor the number of visitors entering the building.

“I think it’s spectacular,” David Schwartz, coordinator of the Gaming Studies Research Center at the University of Nevada Las Vegas told Reuters.

“People were pushing and shoving,” Las Vegan Kathie Anderson told Associated Press.

“There is nobody in the world who creates such entertaining and beautiful casinos,” British billionaire Richard Branson told Associated Press from the casino floor. “I would say every other casino must be nervous. He’s lifted the bar dramatically,” Branson said.

“This would be hard to top,” Las Vegan Marlene DeMarco told Reuters.


Protect Your Data With Disk Image Software

Submitted by: Ed Robinson

Disk image software is much more effective than regular backup software for protecting your data. It does so much more, because it basically records an entire image of your hard disk. This means that, in the event of a system failure, you can simply restore this disk image and your computer will be back to normal again as though nothing went wrong in the first place. As you use your computer, not only do you install new files and programs on it and add bookmarks to your favorite websites and – you also do a great deal more. Consider all of the subtle changes such as interface customizations, file associations, program settings and such. After working with your computer for some time, you will become accustomed to having a personalized interface and a cozy, familiar workplace.

All of this can change in an instant in the event of a major system failure. There are many reasons why this can happen. Your computer can crash at any time and, in worst case scenarios, your computer might not even be able to boot up at all when you turn it back on. If this is the case, there is likely a major problem with the hard disk and/or the master boot record. Without going too much into the technical details, these problems can make your data inaccessible. Although standard disk recovery software will help you to retrieve most, if not all of your data, it simply does not provide the same level of security as disk imaging software uses. You will always be missing things unless you have a complete image of the hard disk stored safely and separately.

Active@ Disk Image is a professional solution for both home and office scenarios. It overcomes the many problems and shortcomings associated with standard recovery software and data backup solutions by simply backing up your entire disk and making a mirror image of it. It uses the shadow copy technique and it does this extremely well, providing the features that you need for greater simplicity and enhanced reliability. Being able to make a disk image makes recovery operations much simpler and you can largely leave such operations unattended. The disk image software is easy to use and quick to configure. Using Active@ Disk Image, you can select the entire disk, including the one containing your Windows installation folder and anything else. The image created will contain all data required for a complete system restore in the event of a system failure.

Restoring the system disk or the partition may seem a little complicated at first. Windows cannot be running during recovery operations. Recovery operations are carried out using Active@ Boot Disk, a component of the disk image software which allows you to boot from any USB drive or CD or DVD and run the recover software from there, outside of Windows. You can learn more about Active@ Disk Image at A download is available here along with a video presentation and demonstration of the software.

Way To Clean Damp Carpet

Submitted by: Ma. Theresa Galan

A damp carpet can be more than a nuisance; it can cause a handful of other problems. Wet or damp carpets are the perfect breeding ground for fungus, including mold. Mold will live and feed on damp carpet causing unsightly stains, a musty odor and the potential for health problems in all who are exposed to it and its spores. You should deal with a damp carpet as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Wet carpet is difficult to clean and it s a really big challenge to ensure that there is no mildew growth and odor problems. Because of the health risks associated with flood damaged carpet you should be sure to wear rubber gloves and a protective mask at all times while working on cleaning up the carpet.

Damp carpets are not only unsightly, but are a serious danger to your health. Left too long, a damp carpet will grow fungus, mould and bacteria. Yuck. When you spot damp in your carpet, you need to clean it as soon as possible. A damp carpet is the perfect home for fungus and bacteria.

In winter, when damp areas are more likely to appear, it might be worth doing a damp check around your house every couple of weeks. Damp carpets are most likely to appear under a faulty radiator, in the cellar or next to a window that wasn t closed properly before heavy rain. When you spot damp or worse, mould on your carpet it s time to swing into action.

There are a couple of options for dealing with damp carpets. Of course, you can contact a professional carpet steam-cleaning company, who will remove the damp, get rid of any stains and leave the carpet bacteria- and mould-free, looking clean and damp free so that you don t have to worry about any further problems.

If you don t have professional steam-cleaning as an option, you will need to do something yourself as soon as you see the damp.

If you have a wet vacuum, go over the damp spot to take out as much of the moisture as possible. If you don t have a wet vacuum, dab the damp area with towels until it s feeling a little drier.

Basic Steps:

Remove as much water from the damp carpet as possible using a wet vacuum. Work in small sections at a time.

Create a cleaning solution by filling a bucket with 1 pint of warm water, 1 tbsp. of distilled white vinegar and cup of laundry detergent that does not contain bleach.

Submerge a scrub brush into the suds and begin to scrub the carpet in a back-and-forth motion. Start at the area farthest away from the entrance and work toward it.

Allow the carpet to air dry thoroughly. Point fans in the direction of the carpet and–if on a warm, sunny day–open doors and windows to help the drying process.

Use a dehumidifier in the room with the damp carpet. Mold spores thrive in damp areas and can easily begin to grow and spread on damp carpet. Using a dehumidifier will take the moisture out of the air and inhibit mold growth.

Vacuum the carpet thoroughly when it is completely dry.
