The Millennium Project of the American Council for the United Nations University is a global participatory futures research think tank of futurists, scholars, business planners, and policy makers who work for international organizations, governments, corporations, NGOs, and universities. The Millennium Project manages a coherent and cumulative process that collects and assesses judgements from its several hundred participants to produce the annual “State of the Future”, “Futures Research Methodology” series, and special studies such as the State of the Future Index, Future Scenarios for Africa, Lessons of History, Environmental Security,  Applications of Futures Research to Policy, and a 550+ annotated scenarios bibliography.

It connects local and global perspectives via regional Nodes (groups of individuals and institutions) in Beijing (China); Brisbane (Australsia); Brussels (Belgium); Buenos Aires (Argentina); Cairo (Egypt); Calgary (Canada); Caracas (Venezuela); Essen (Germany); Helsinki (Finland); Kuwait (Gulf region); London (U.K.); Madurai & New Delhi (India); Maui (Hawaii); Mexico City (Mexico); Moscow (Russia); Paris (France); Prague (Central and Eastern Europe); Pretoria & Johannesburg (South Africa); Rome (Italy); Sao Paulo (Brazil); Seoul (South Korea); Silicon Valley (U.S.); Tehran (Iran); and Tokyo (Japan). The Millennium Project was selected among the “100 Best Practices” by UN Habitat, best 7 foresight organizations by Battelle Northwest for the U.S. Department of Energy, and among the “Top Picks” by Future Survey, of the World Future Society.

The purpose of the Millennium Project is to be an international utility to assist in organizing futures research by continuously updating and improving humanity’s thinking about the future and making that thinking available for feedback as a geographically and institutionally dispersed think tank.

Real Money Roulette – A Guide on how and where to play real money Roulette online

When it comes to playing roulette, there is far more than just selecting Red or Black. It you’re a hardcore roulette player, you’ll know pretty much every wager and every possible bet going, however, if you’re not too sure, always make sure you check out the help files on offer.

Roulette comes in 3 major variants, American Roulette, European Roulette and French Roulette (which does sound a bit odd given France is in Europe!). However, each of these variations of the same game comes with greatly different game play rules and also playing odds and house edges. Should you decide that you want to play, then try and always make sure that you are playing the European variation of Roulette and not the American variant!

The reason we say this is due to the fact that the American Variant comes with 2 zeros (0 and 00) on the wheel, and the house edge is a whopping 5.26%! However should you settle down to the European variant, the house edge is a meagre 2.70%! Should you come across a casino offering French Roulette however, you’ll be able to have an even better chance of winning as the house edge of French Roulette is exactly half of that of European roulette at an even smaller 1.35%.

Sometimes however, it’s not appropriate for you to play French Roulette, so make sure you play the European version and vice versa, however, whatever you do, don’t play the American Roulette as the exorbitant house edge means that we wouldn’t touch it with a stolen croupier’s dolly!

The beauty of Real money Roulette is that you can make some huge winnings, but unfortunately, on the flip side of the coin (or chip!) you can also lose vast amounts and very quickly, so try to always ensure that you have a good playing strategy in mind, whether this be at a Casino, an online casino (where you can play live or random number generator games) or on a mobile device.

Try to ensure that your stakes are no more than around 5 – 10% of your total gaming budget, so for example, if you have 100 chips, wager no more than 10 chips per spin. This may not sound a lot, but if you are wagering with chips of a value of 0.50 or even 0.25 you’ll be able to place far more chips than if you were playing with a 1:1 type Budget: Chip ratio.

If you don’t have a huge bankroll, then try placing corner bets, this will allow you to cover twice the amount of numbers for the same price, and can easily see you making even money, or better a small profit.

And by the way, please don’t believe stuff like that:
