Titan Poker, the leading online poker room in Europe, has improved the benefits it awards recreational poker players. Players who regularly play at the room’s poker cash games and tournaments but who don’t earn sufficient Titan Poker loyalty points to achieve VIP status receive Monthly Cash Rewards automatically.
As part of the Monthly Cash promotion, players receive $1 in cash for every 100 Titan Points they earn, and payment is issued directly to their Titan Poker accounts at the beginning of each month.
This automatic cash reward system is unprecedented in the online poker industry. TitanPoker.com is already known for its extremely generous VIP Club. The introduction of Monthly Cash lowers the threshold for players who consider online poker a hobby or an occasional pastime. In a system that generates big rewards for small players, players can receive as much as a $20 boost to their bankroll every month. Players who play more frequently, and generate more Titan Poker Points, receive the full benefits of the Titan VIP Club.
Full details of the Monthly Cash offer are available on the Titan Poker website. New players are invited to try out the free poker download and enjoy the Monthly Cash reward every month.
Time is ticking. 21.12.2012, Doomsday. The End of the World.
Doomsday cult is an expression used to describe groups who believe in Apocalypticism and Millenarianism, and can refer both to groups that prophesy catastrophe and destruction, and to those that attempt to bring it about. The expression was first used by sociologist John Lofland in his 1966 study of a group of Unification Church members in California, Doomsday Cult: A Study of Conversion, Proselytization, and Maintenance of Faith. A classic study of a group with cataclysmic predictions had previously been performed by Leon Festinger and other researchers, and was published in his book When Prophecy Fails: A Social and Psychological Study of a Modern Group that Predicted the Destruction of the World. Some authors have used "doomsday cult" solely to characterize groups that have used acts of violence to harm their members and/or others, such as the salmonella poisoning of salad bars by members of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh group, and the mass murder/suicide of members of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God group. Others have used the term to refer to groups which have made and later revised apocalyptic prophesies or predictions, such as the Church Universal and Triumphant led by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, and the initial group studied by Festinger, et al. Still others have used the term to refer to groups that have prophesied impending doom and cataclysmic events, and also carried out violent acts, such as the Aum Shinrikyo sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway and the mass murder/suicide of members of Jim Jones' Peoples Temple group after similar types of predictions.
Referring to his study, Festinger and later other researchers have attempted to explain the commitment of members to their associated doomsday cult, even after the prophesies of their leader have turned out to be false. Festinger explained this phenomenon as part of a coping mechanism called dissonance reduction, a form of rationalization. Members often dedicate themselves with renewed vigor to the group's cause after a failed prophesy, and rationalize with explanations such as a belief that their actions forestalled the disaster, or a belief in the leader when the date for disaster is postponed.
Some researchers believe that the use of the term by the government and the news media can lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy, in which actions by authorities reinforces the apocalyptic beliefs of the group, which in turn can inspire further controversial actions. Group leaders have themselves objected to comparisons between one group and another, and parallels have been drawn between the concept of a self-fulfilling prophecy and the theory of a deviancy amplification spiral.

Lightning-fast poker has arrived at Titan Poker, the leading online poker site in Europe, with the launch of Speed Hold’em Poker, a new cash game format that changes the concept, and speed, of online poker.
In Speed Hold’em Poker, which is available initially at select No Limit Hold’em cash games, players join a large pool of players and face different opponents with every hand. Players can fold their hands at any time by clicking a Speed Fold button, even if it’s not their turn to act. They are immediately moved to a different table where they are dealt a new hand.
Moving from hand to hand is streamlined for the players, as there is no opening and closing of table screens. When a speed poker hand finishes, or when a player folds, a player’s opponents simply disappear and new ones instantly take their place.
Speed Hold’em Poker tables are easily found in the Titan Poker software, and they can be saved in a player’s Favorites, or accessed with the Quick Seat feature. Players can play up to 4 times more hands per hour and can also multi-table with multiple entries into the playing pool.
Speed Hold’em Poker speeds up the poker action to a turbo pace, significantly reducing the waiting time between hands. Poker novices and veteran poker players alike are invited to make a free poker download at Titan Poker and try out an innovation that will change the way they experience online poker.
