US industry wonders: What should tomorrow's casino floor be?
Casino Conference This June 23, 2021 photo shows people playing slot machines at Bally's casino in Atlantic City N.J. On Oct. 25, 2021, panelists at the East Coast Gaming Congress in Atlantic City pondered what the casino floor of the future should look like, including how to attract the next generation of gamblers. But the central fact remains that the casino floor of today is not all that different than the casino floor of yesteryear. What the casino floor of the future should look like is a question the gambling industry has wrestled with for decades.

Borsalino looks ahead with cool bucket hats, baseball caps
The new collection displayed during Milan Fashion Week takes inspiration from the Arts & Crafts design movement in mid-19th century Britain. “You can change the attitude of the hat.”Unisex styles, including baseball caps, berets and bucket hats, come in updated new materials - including a spotted cow print, black patent leather and rainproof nylon. Such genderless looks are becoming an increasingly important part of the collection, Santucci said. Last season’s film featured dancers from Alessandria, site of the original Borsalino factory, dancing through the factory floor. It is getting closer to entertainment, to give people the chance to engage with the brand, to understand it better.
Photos: Somber and silent | Veterans Day in the COVID era
Veterans Day has its roots in a proclamation issued by President Woodrow Wilson in November 1919, a year after World War I ended, designating Nov. 11 as Armistice Day. In 1954, Armistice Day became Veterans Day and the focus became honoring U.S. veterans of all wars. In the COVID-19 era, however, the Veterans Day holiday means no crowded parades and few ceremonies.
