Headquarter of Mondadori designed by Oscar Niemeyer

Inaugurated in 1975, the headquarters of the Mondadori Group is one of the most significant buildings designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer (1907), whose design and plans for the city of Brasilia had impressed Arnoldo Mondadori.The site, surrounded by a large lake, is made up of three elements: a large parallelepiped characterised by tall arches of varying widths, for the offices and editorial departments, linked to two low-rise and sinuous sections that appear to emerge out of the central building. The first is where the restaurant, canteen, bar and shops are located; while the second, in the form of a willow leaf, hosts a number of editorial departments, the Archive and the Auditorium.

“With the Mondadori building I showed how important it is to maintain an external harmonious play on volume and free space, using arches of differing widths, with an unequal almost musical rhythm, that makes them distinctive”.
Oscar Niemeyer.

From there, make sure that when you wager with an online casino that you know exactly what you are doing. The biggest mistake that you could possibly make would be to place bets on games that you are unsure of. For example, if you want to play blackjack at an online casino but do not know how, make sure you get some details first. If you do not, you are doing the equivalent of throwing your money out the window. The bottom line is that you can never win at an online casino if you do not know the rules of the games that you are going to play.

You will be required to place your money on an account, and this will be transferred to the winner via PayPal or Neteller. So before handing in cash, check out the website, first! If they have more members and a good reputation, you can almost be assured that you get your moneys worth. Make sure that before downloading any of software an online casino is offering, there has to be test run of the product first. You have to be able to play for free before you download the software, since this may help in protecting you from fraud in the end. An example of this software is the Cryptologic, is safe and can be trusted, since it is listed in the Nasdaq.

The actual fun is the tension building up seeing other players closer and closer to the finish line. However, with the advent of the Internet, BINGO has gone online as well. There are many ways to play on the net, though the basics remain the same. You will have to complete a given pattern before anyone else in order to win. Over the net, you need not shout the computer will flash it out for you. Some online games also have chat attached to the games where you can speak with other players online and have fun right from your home, office or any other place where you can get on the net. Chatting is a great way to meet new people and pick up the tips and tricks. [url=]buy phentermine[/url] buy phentermine
