With the advent of technology, privacy and age-related limitations have been done away with. Almost anything is available on the internet in abundance. For those sites where a paywall or a subscription is required, it takes just a few clicks to find loopholes in the workings of the dark web, to manipulate the settings, and to become a full-time user. Similarly, digitisation of almost every industry has allowed access to worlds previously not openly accessible to just anyone. The partakers of this new world, not surprisingly, are children and youth, armed with curiosity and the impeccable ability to navigate the online world with ease.


Gambling has a rather attractive lure, and in a matter of no time at all, it is easy to so involved in it that there is no way out. In such a competitive and fast-paced world, anyone will go the extra mile to earn more money. It doesn't matter what is at stake, especially when young people have not really worked to earn what they are ready to stake.

In the past few years, online gambling has seen a big boom. Youngsters, especially college students are easily lured into this world, and tragically get enveloped to such an extent that when they find no way out, they end their lives, knowing that they cannot pay back their debts. Many such cases have been reported in many parts of India, and often the victims are those who have newly entered the world and lost their way from the overwhelming amount of particulars available, unsure of how to claim it for themselves. But all this aside, how does one enter this world with so much ease?

For starters, the gambling world does not ask for much. Being curious about the industry is enough drive to begin. Wanting to win is certainly an important part of continuing into the deeper forays of the website. Add to the list the comparatively lax entry points. One does not really need to verify their identity and can play under pseudonyms. There is no check on the amount that can be invested, or on how much can be won. Certainly, there is no way to check for the participant's age. When these factors come together, they make a pretty deal to attract even the initially hesitant ones. Beginning the game is only the first step, and once one thing leads to another, before long, it becomes a world accessible on the tip of the finger, literally.

Many online casinos place their advertisement in strategic locations across various sites. The bright colours, attractive names, and irresistible offers read like subliminal messages for those who dream of big bucks, especially freshers in college, who need money to explore their world. It seems like a viable option to test the skills of strategy making while also having extra pocket money to spend.

Restrictions of age, monetary capacity, and sometimes even social status exist only in the offline world. The virtual is a place that can make anything out of anyone. When it comes to online gambling, casinos, and games, this is definitely a plus. It remains open all day long, all year around, and each hour is an opportunity to change the way one lives.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe.
