Hawaii conducts a Lottery with a unique prize - goats

Senior Reporter

What would you do if your property was taken over by animals who refuse to leave? Hawaii officials had an overwhelming amount of uninvited guests who are currently destroying the grass and other greenery in the area. But worry not, a sound solution has been found, and everyone involved will be satisfied.

Goats have completely overrun Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park in Hawaii, and locals are at risk of losing the site to billy and nannies. However, Hawaii officials have come up with a unique plan of keeping the park alive by offering up goats as Lottery winnings. And not just a couple - as many as 700.  

Participants simply have to apply for permits before the Lottery takes place on July 28, after which the winners will be chosen randomly.  What’s more exciting is that lucky winners will get to leave with as many as 50 goats! The lowest “payout” will still be pretty generous and will require a considerably large vehicle to escort 25 animals to a new home. 

Division of Forestry and Wildlife of Hawaii will announce the winners of the Lottery online on the day after the drawing. The winners will be randomly chosen for 30-minute slots on the day of the distribution. That same day the Lottery will distribute the goats among the winners. 

Those who win the prize are required to haul the goats with a 16-foot (4.87-meter) enclosed horse trailer or equivalent and can lose the opportunity to collect the “winnings” if the trailer isn’t secure enough for transportation. A permit can be 

Sadly, participants won’t get to pick and choose and can only request the number of goats they wish to acquire when signing up for the Lottery permit. Regardless, several dozens of goats should offer quite a variety without the need for cherry-picking. 

Keeping cultural resources nice and tidy is an essential part of keeping history alive. It’s much better to have Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park available for see sighting rather than resorting to honoring its memory in textbooks. 

Goats will be captured and transferred away from the park, and the location will be closed on August 11, 2021. This 420-acre park is approximately as massive as 181.5 football fields. Eight goats need a whole acre of land to live comfortably and have enough food. So 700 goats for 420 acres indicates that it’s time to take action. 

Goats are great for producing milk and cheese, fertilizer, nice goat curry for dinner, and more. So in this Lottery - everybody wins. The participants who get drawn will have an opportunity to make some extra money with the new “pets,” and the Lottery operators will get to clear out the national park without having to gun down all the goats.

Amazon Vaccine Lottery | This time its only a partial scam

If anyone aside from medical staff heroes deserves to be rewarded for consistency and hard work throughout the pandemic, it’s Amazon's workers. The pandemic pushed the company employees to the limits, as millions of packages were delivered during the lockdown and simultaneous holidays. Hours of packaging, delivering, refunding, customer service, and many other tasks completed by Amazon staff call for public recognition. As a reward, the world's largest online retailer will thank the loyal teams by conducting a “Max Your Vax” lottery, offering 18 prizes that include cash, cars, and vacation packages. Now, the bummer - only vaccinated employees are eligible for the exclusive draw.

H-1B Visa lottery for eligible foreigners | Second chance to work in the USA

Hundreds of Indian IT professionals and other qualified foreign workers missed their chance at the first H-1B Visa lottery since the draw was conducted early this year. Having a second draw is almost unheard of in this regard, but the computerized selection shortage tweaked circumstances in favor of discouraged contestants. The re-try is exciting news for both companies and the desired applicants. Intelligent minds are always needed here, and it’s America that will be the real winner when it welcomes hundreds of qualified individuals abroad. This time around, the rules will be slightly different.

Young man climbs over 60 floors of Aria Resort and Casino to protest COVID-19 mandates

Just as Nevada got a taste of freedom after the lockdown, mask mandates went back into effect Friday, this late June.

However, a 22-year-old man named Maison Des Champs took it upon himself to make a statement, quite a shocking one too. After losing his grandfather to suicide during the lockdown, he began to protest against the government’s infringement on freedom. This Tuesday, Des Champs climbed 60-some floors of the Aria Resort and Casino’s exterior to send a message.

Twitch poorly combats illegal gambling | New restrictions

The ongoing issue of illegal gambling streams on Twitch has seen little to no attention from the site creators until earlier this August. But despite the alarming need for strict measures, a slight regulation has been introduced in order to prevent streamers from engaging in unlawful betting activities. Being that Twitch makes benefits from channels like Trainwreck and xQc, it’s possible that this band-aid solution was proposed in order to silence the complaining public, and allow streamers to carry on with shady, money-making activities.
