Photoactivated localization microscopy
Photo-activated localization microscopy and stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy are widefield fluorescence microscopy imaging methods that allow obtaining images with a resolution beyond the diffraction limit. The methods were proposed in 2006 in the wake of a general emergence of optical super-resolution microscopy methods, were featured as Methods of the Year for 2008 by the Nature Methods journal; the development of PALM as a targeted biophysical imaging method was prompted by the discovery of new species and the engineering of mutants of fluorescent proteins displaying a controllable photochromism, such as photo-activatable GFP. However, the concomitant development of STORM, sharing the same fundamental principle made use of paired cyanine dyes. One molecule of the pair, when excited near its absorption maximum, serves to reactivate the other molecule to the fluorescent state. A growing number of dyes are used for PALM, STORM and related techniques, both organic fluorophores and fluorescent proteins.
Some are compatible with live cell imaging, others allow faster denser labeling. The choice of a particular fluorophore depends on the application and on its underlying photophysical properties. Both techniques have undergone significant technical developments, in particular allowing multicolor imaging and the extension to three dimensions, with the best current axial resolution of 10 nm in the third dimension obtained using an interferometric approach with two opposing objectives collecting the fluorescence from the sample. Conventional fluorescence microscopy is performed by selectively staining the sample with fluorescent molecules, either linked to antibodies as in immunohistochemistry or using fluorescent proteins genetically fused to the genes of interest; the more concentrated the fluorophores, the better the contrast of the fluorescence image. A single fluorophore can be visualized under a microscope if the number of photons emitted is sufficiently high, in contrast the background is low enough.
The two dimensional image of a point source observed under a microscope is an extended spot, corresponding to the Airy disk of the imaging system. The ability to identify as two individual entities two spaced fluorophores is limited by the diffraction of light; this is quantified by Abbe’s criterion, stating that the minimal distance that allows resolving two point sources is given by d = λ 2 N A where λ is the wavelength of the fluorescent emission and NA is the numerical aperture of the microscope. The theoretical resolution limit at the shortest practical excitation wavelength is around 150 nm in the lateral dimension and approaching 400 nm in the axial dimension. However, if the emission from the two neighboring fluorescent molecules is made distinguishable, i.e. the photons coming from each of the two can be identified it is possible to overcome the diffraction limit. Once a set of photons from a specific molecule is collected, it forms a diffraction-limited spot in the image plane of the microscope.
The center of this spot can be found by fitting the observed emission profile to a known geometrical function a Gaussian function in two dimensions. The error, made in localizing the center of a point emitter scales to a first approximation as the inverse square root of the number of emitted photons, if enough photons are collected it is easy to obtain a localization error much smaller than the original point spread function; the two steps of identification and localization of individual fluorescent molecules in a dense environment where many are present are at the basis of PALM, STORM and their development. Although many approaches to molecular identification exist, the light-induced photochromism of selected fluorophores developed as the most promising approach to distinguish neighboring molecules by separating their fluorescent emission in time. By turning on stochastically sparse subsets of fluorophores with light of a specific wavelength, individual molecules can be excited and imaged according to their spectra.
To avoid the accumulation of active fluorophores in the sample, which would degrade back to a diffraction-limited image, the spontaneously occurring phenomenon of photobleaching is exploited in PALM, whereas reversible switching between a fluorescent on-state and a dark off-state of a dye is exploited in STORM. In summary, PALM and STORM are based on collecting under a fluorescent microscope a large number of images each containing just a few active isolated fluorophores; the imaging sequence allows for the many emission cycles necessary to stochastically activate each fluorophore from a non-emissive state to a bright state, back to a non-emissive or bleached state. During each cycle, the density of activated molecules is kept low enough that the molecular images of individual fluorophores do not overlap. In each image of the sequence, the position of a fluorophore is calculated with a precision greater than the diffraction limit - in the typical range of a few to tens of nm - and the resulting information of the position of the centers of all the localized molecules is used to build up the super-resolution PALM or STORM image.
The localization precision σ can be calculated according to the formula
The Arecaceae are a botanical family of perennial plants. Their growth form can be climbers, shrubs and stemless plants, all known as palms; those having a tree form are colloquially called palm trees. They are flowering a family in the monocot order Arecales. 181 genera with around 2600 species are known, most of them restricted to tropical and subtropical climates. Most palms are distinguished by their large, evergreen leaves, known as fronds, arranged at the top of an unbranched stem. However, palms exhibit an enormous diversity in physical characteristics and inhabit nearly every type of habitat within their range, from rainforests to deserts. Palms are among the most extensively cultivated plant families, they have been important to humans throughout much of history. Many common products and foods are derived from palms. In contemporary times, palms are widely used in landscaping, making them one of the most economically important plants. In many historical cultures, because of their importance as food, palms were symbols for such ideas as victory and fertility.
For inhabitants of cooler climates today, palms symbolize the vacations. Whether as shrubs, trees, or vines, palms have two methods of growth: solitary or clustered; the common representation is that of a solitary shoot ending in a crown of leaves. This monopodial character may be exhibited by prostrate and trunk-forming members; some common palms restricted to solitary growth include Roystonea. Palms may instead grow in sparse though dense clusters; the trunk develops an axillary bud at a leaf node near the base, from which a new shoot emerges. The new shoot, in turn, produces a clustering habit results. Sympodial genera include many of the rattans and Rhapis. Several palm genera have both solitary and clustering members. Palms which are solitary may grow in clusters and vice versa; these aberrations suggest. Palms have large, evergreen leaves that are either palmately or pinnately compound and spirally arranged at the top of the stem; the leaves have a tubular sheath at the base that splits open on one side at maturity.
The inflorescence is a spadix or spike surrounded by one or more bracts or spathes that become woody at maturity. The flowers are small and white, radially symmetric, can be either uni- or bisexual; the sepals and petals number three each, may be distinct or joined at the base. The stamens number six, with filaments that may be separate, attached to each other, or attached to the pistil at the base; the fruit is a single-seeded drupe but some genera may contain two or more seeds in each fruit. Like all monocots, palms do not have the ability to increase the width of a stem via the same kind of vascular cambium found in non-monocot woody plants; this explains the cylindrical shape of the trunk, seen in palms, unlike in ring-forming trees. However, many palms, like some other monocots, do have secondary growth, although because it does not arise from a single vascular cambium producing xylem inwards and phloem outwards, it is called "anomalous secondary growth"; the Arecaceae are notable among monocots for their height and for the size of their seeds and inflorescences.
Ceroxylon quindiuense, Colombia's national tree, is the tallest monocot in the world, reaching up to 60 m tall. The coco de mer has the largest seeds of 40 -- 50 cm in diameter and weighing 15 -- 30 kg each. Raffia palms have the largest leaves of any plant, up to 25 m long and 3 m wide; the Corypha species have the largest inflorescence of any plant, up to 7.5 m tall and containing millions of small flowers. Calamus stems. Most palms are native to subtropical climates. Palms can be found in a variety of different habitats, their diversity is highest in lowland forests. South America, the Caribbean, areas of the south Pacific and southern Asia are regions of concentration. Colombia may have the highest number of palm species in one country. There are some palms that are native to desert areas such as the Arabian peninsula and parts of northwestern Mexico. Only about 130 palm species grow beyond the tropics in humid lowland subtropical climates, in highlands in southern Asia, along the rim lands of the Mediterranean Sea.
The northernmost native palm is Chamaerops humilis, which reaches 44°N latitude along the coast of southern France. In the southern hemisphere, the southernmost palm is the Rhopalostylis sapida, which reaches 44°S on the Chatham Islands where an oceanic climate prevails. Cultivation of palms is possible north of subtropical climates, some higher latitude locals such as Ireland, Scotland and the Pacific Northwest feature a few palms in protected locations. Palms inhabit a variety of ecosystems. More than two-thirds of palm species live in humid moist forests, where some species grow tall enough to form part of the canopy and shorter ones form part of the understory; some species form pure stands in areas with poor drainage or regular flooding, including Raphia hookeri, common in coastal freshwater swamps in West Africa. Other palms live in tropical mountain habitats above 1000 m, such as those in the genus Ceroxylon native to the Andes. Palms may live in grasslands and scrublands associated with a water source, in desert oases such as the date palm.
A few palms are adapted to basic lime soils, while others are ada
Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels. In most liturgical churches Palm Sunday is celebrated by the blessing and distribution of palm branches or the branches of other native trees representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Christ as he rode into Jerusalem; the difficulty of procuring palms in unfavorable climates led to their substitution with branches of native trees, including box, olive and yew. The Sunday was named after these substitute trees, as in Yew Sunday, or by the general term Branch Sunday. In the accounts of the four canonical Gospels, Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem takes place a week before his resurrection. Only the Gospel of John shows a timeline of the event, dated six days before the Passover. Before this, Jesus talked to two of his disciples, taking to himself the ancient Greek word of Lord, written with a capital letter in the original text, as a proper noun.
The raising of Lazarus is mentioned only in the previous chapter. The Eastern Orthodox Church and the Eastern Catholic Churches which follows the Byzantine Rite, commemorate it on Lazarus Saturday, following the text of the Gospel. In fact, the Jewish calendar dates begin at sundown of the night beforehand, conclude at nightfall. Christian theologians believe that the symbolism is captured prophetically in the Old Testament: Zechariah 9:9 "The Coming of Zion's King – See, your king comes to you and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey", quoted in the Gospels, it suggests. According to the Gospels, Jesus Christ rode a donkey into Jerusalem, the celebrating people there laid down their cloaks and small branches of trees in front of him, singing part of Psalm 118: 25–26 – Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord; the symbolism of the donkey may refer to the Eastern tradition that it is an animal of peace, unlike the horse, the animal of war.
A king would have ridden a horse when he was bent on war and ridden a donkey to symbolize his arrival in peace. Jesus' entry to Jerusalem would have thus symbolized his entry as the Prince of Peace, not as a war-waging king, thus there have been two different meanings: an historical meaning happening according to the Gospels, a secondary meaning in the symbolism. In Luke 19:41 as Jesus approaches Jerusalem, he looks at the city and weeps over it, foretelling his coming Passion and the suffering that awaits the city in the events of the destruction of the Second Temple. In many lands in the ancient Near East, it was customary to cover in some way the path of someone thought worthy of the highest honour; the Hebrew Bible reports that son of Jehoshaphat, was treated this way. Both the Synoptic Gospels and the Gospel of John report. In the synoptics the people are described as laying their garments and cut rushes on the street, whereas John specifies fronds of palm. In Jewish tradition, the palm is one of the Four Species carried for Sukkot, as prescribed for rejoicing at Leviticus 23:40.
In the Greco-Roman culture of the Roman Empire, which influenced Christian tradition, the palm branch was a symbol of triumph and victory. It became the most common attribute of Victoria. For contemporary Roman observers, the procession would have evoked the Roman triumph, when the triumphator laid down his arms and wore the toga, the civilian garment of peace that might be ornamented with emblems of the palm. Although the Epistles of Paul refer to Jesus as "triumphing", the entry into Jerusalem may not have been pictured as a triumphal procession in this sense before the 13th century. In ancient Egyptian religion, the palm was carried in funeral processions and represented eternal life; the palm branch was used as a symbol of Christian martyrs and their spiritual victory or triumph over death. In Revelation 7:9, the white-clad multitude stand before Lamb holding palm branches. Palm Sunday, or the "Entry of the Lord into Jerusalem" as it may be called in Orthodox Churches, is one of the Twelve Great Feasts of the liturgical year.
The day before Palm Sunday, Lazarus Saturday, believers prepare palm fronds by knotting them into crosses in preparation for the procession on Sunday. The hangings and vestments in the church are changed to a festive color – most green; the Troparion of the Feast indicates that the resurrection of Lazarus is a prefiguration of Jesus's own Resurrection: In the Russian Orthodox Church, Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Ukrainian Catholic Church, Ruthenian Catholic Church, Polish and Austrian Roman Catholics, various other Eastern European peoples, the custom developed of using pussy willow instead of palm fronds because the latter are not available that far north. There is no canonical requirement as to what kind of branches must be used, so some Orthodox believers use olive branches. Whatever the kind, these branches are blessed and distributed together with candles either during the All-Night Vigil on the Eve of the Feast, or before the Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning; the Great Entrance of the Divine Liturgy commemorates the "Entry of the Lord into Jerusalem", so the meaningfulness of this moment is punctuated on Palm Sunday as everyone stands, holding their branches and lit candles.
The faithful take these bran
The palm is an obsolete anthropic unit of length based on the width of the human palm and variously standardized. The same name is used for a second, rather larger unit based on the length of the human hand; the width of the palm was a traditional unit in Ancient Egypt, Israel and Rome and in medieval England, where it was known as the hand, handbreadth, or handsbreadth. The only discussed "palm" in modern English is the biblical palm of ancient Israel; the length of the hand—originally the Roman "greater palm"—formed the palm of medieval Italy and France. The Spanish and Portuguese "palm" was the span, the distance between an outstretched thumb and little finger; the Ancient Egyptian palm has been reconstructed as about 75 3 in. The unit is attested as early as the reign of Djer, third pharaoh of the First Dynasty, appears on many surviving cubit-rods; the palm was subdivided into four digits of about 19 mm. Three palms made up lesser span of about 22.5 cm. Four palms made up the foot of about 30 cm.
Five made up the remen of about 37.5 cm. Six made up the "Greek cubit" of about 45 cm. Seven made up the "royal cubit" of about 52.5 cm. Eight made up the pole of about 60 cm; the palm was not a major unit in ancient Mesopotamia but appeared in ancient Israel as the tefah, tepah, or topah. Scholars were long uncertain as to whether this was reckoned using the Egyptian or Babylonian cubit, but now believe it to have approximated the Egyptian "Greek cubit", giving a value for the palm of about 74 mm or 2.9 in. As in Egypt, the palm was divided into four digits of about 18.5 mm and three palms made up a span of about 22.1 cm. Six made up the Hebrew cubit of about 44.3 cm, although the cubits mentioned in Ezekiel follow the royal cubit in consisting of seven palms comprising about 51.8 centimeters. The Ancient Greek palm made up 1/4 of the Greek foot; this gives values for the palm between 6.7–8.8 cm, with the Attic palm around 7.4 cm. These various palms were divided into four digits or two "middle phalanges".
Two palms made a half-foot. The Greeks had a less common "greater palm" of five digits; the Roman palm or lesser palm made up ¼ of the Roman foot, which varied in practice between 29.2–29.7 cm but is thought to have been 29.6 cm. This would have given the palm a notional value of 7.4 cm within a range of a few millimeters. The palm was divided into three inches of about 2.47 cm. Three made a span of about 22.2 cm. The palms of medieval and early modern Europe—the Italian and Portuguese palmo and French palme—were based upon the Roman "greater palm", reckoned as a hand's span or length. In Italy, the palm varied regionally; the Genovese palm was about 24.76–24.85 cm. On Sicily and Malta, it was 24.61 cm. In France, the palm was about 24.61 cm in Pernes-les-Fontaines and about 24.76 cm in Languedoc. Palaiseau gave metric equivalents for the palme or palmo in 1816, Rose provided English equivalents in 1900: The English palm, handbreadth, or handsbreadth is three inches or, four digits; the measurement was, not always well distinguished from the hand or handful, which became equal to four inches by a 1541 statute of Henry VIII.
The palm was excluded from the British Weights and Measures Act of 1824 that established the imperial system and is not a standard US customary unit. The Moroccan palm is given by Hutton as about 18.20 cm. Anthropic units
Palm OS is a discontinued mobile operating system developed by Palm, Inc. for personal digital assistants in 1996. Palm OS was designed for ease of use with a touchscreen-based graphical user interface, it is provided with a suite of basic applications for personal information management. Versions of the OS have been extended to support smartphones. Several other licensees have manufactured devices powered by Palm OS. Following Palm's purchase of the Palm trademark, the licensed version from ACCESS was renamed Garnet OS. In 2007, ACCESS introduced the successor to Garnet OS, called Access Linux Platform and in 2009, the main licensee of Palm OS, Inc. switched from Palm OS to webOS for their forthcoming devices. Palm OS was developed under the direction of Jeff Hawkins at Palm Computing, Inc. Palm was acquired by U. S. Robotics Corp. which in turn was bought by 3Com, which made the Palm subsidiary an independent publicly traded company on March 2, 2000. In January 2002, Palm set up a wholly owned subsidiary to develop and license Palm OS, named PalmSource.
PalmSource was spun off from Palm as an independent company on October 28, 2003. Palm became a regular licensee of Palm OS, no longer in control of the operating system. In September 2005, PalmSource announced that it was being acquired by ACCESS. In December 2006, Palm gained perpetual rights to the Palm OS source code from ACCESS. With this Palm can modify the licensed operating system as needed without paying further royalties to ACCESS. Together with the May 2005 acquisition of full rights to the Palm brand name, only Palm can publish releases of the operating system under the name'Palm OS'; as a consequence, on January 25, 2007, ACCESS announced a name change to their current Palm OS operating system, now titled Garnet OS. Palm OS is a proprietary mobile operating system. Designed in 1996 for Palm Computing, Inc.'s new Pilot PDA, it has been implemented on a wide array of mobile devices, including smartphones, wrist watches, handheld gaming consoles, barcode readers and GPS devices. Palm OS versions earlier than 5.0 run on Motorola/Freescale DragonBall processors.
From version 5.0 onwards, Palm OS runs on ARM architecture-based processors. The key features of the current Palm OS Garnet are: Simple, single-tasking environment to allow launching of full screen applications with a basic, common GUI set Monochrome or color screens with resolutions up to 480x320 pixel Handwriting recognition input system called Graffiti 2 HotSync technology for data synchronization with desktop computers Sound playback and record capabilities Simple security model: Device can be locked by password, arbitrary application records can be made private TCP/IP network access Serial port/USB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections Expansion memory card support Defined standard data format for personal information management applications to store calendar, address and note entries, accessible by third-party applications. Included with the OS is a set of standard applications, with the most relevant ones for the four mentioned PIM operations. Manufacturers are free to implement different features of the OS in their devices or add new features.
This version history describes the licensed version from Palm/PalmSource/ACCESS. All versions prior to Palm OS 5 are based on top of the AMX 68000 kernel licensed from KADAK Products Ltd. While this kernel is technically capable of multitasking, the "terms and conditions of that license state that Palm may not expose the API for creating/manipulating tasks within the OS." Palm OS 1.0 is the original version present on the Pilot 1000 and 5000. It was introduced in March 1996. Version 1.0 features the classic PIM applications Address, Date Book, Memo Pad, To Do List. Included is a calculator and the Security tool to hide records for private use. Palm OS 1.0 does not file system storage. Applications are executed in place; as no dedicated file system is supported, the operating system depends on constant RAM refresh cycles to keep its memory. The OS supports 160x160 monochrome output displays. User input is generated through the Graffiti handwriting recognition system or optionally through a virtual keyboard.
The system supports data synchronization to another PC via its HotSync technology over a serial interface. The latest bugfix release is version 1.0.7. Palm OS 2.0 was introduced on March 1997 with the PalmPilot Personal and Professional. This version adds TCP/IP network, network HotSync, display backlight support; the last bugfix release is version 2.0.5. Two new applications and Expense are added, the standard PIM applications have been enhanced. Palm OS 3.0 was introduced on March 1998 with the launch of the Palm III series. This version adds IrDA enhanced font support; this version features updated PIM applications and an update to the application launcher. Palm OS 3.1 adds only minor new features, like network HotSync support. It was introduced with the Palm IIIx and Palm V; the last bugfix release is version 3.1.1. Palm OS 3.2 adds Web Clipping support, an early Palm-specific solution to bring web-content to a small PDA screen. It was introduced with the Palm VII organizer. Palm OS 3.3 adds the ability to do infrared hotsyncing.
It was introduced with the Palm Vx organizer. Palm OS 3.5 is the first version to include native 8-bit color support. It adds major convenience features that simplify operation, like a context-sensitive icon-bar or simpler menu activation; the datebook application is extended with an additional agenda view. This version was first introduced with the Palm IIIc device; the la
Palms is an elevated light-rail station on the Expo Line of the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system, at the intersection of National Boulevard and Palms Boulevard in the Palms neighborhood of Los Angeles. The station is in Palms, Los Angeles, a dense residential neighborhood just south of I-10 and north of Culver City, it is within walking distance of the Castle Heights and Cheviot Hills neighborhoods. The station location is adjacent to I-10, just west of the three-way intersection of National and Exposition boulevards and perched on an embankment above National Boulevard. Access is provided by elevators at the east end of the station. Construction incorporated an existing steel bridge from the Air Line era and added a new concrete bridge, both east of the station over the National/Palms intersection, as well as re-used an existing rail tunnel west of the station. Bay View was a stop on the Los Independence Railroad, it was renamed The Palms in 1886. The Eastlake style Palms-Southern Pacific Railroad Depot building was situated 600 yards west of the present station location, on the south side of the tracks, remained in active rail service until the closure of the Pacific Electric Air Line in 1953.
Used in many motion pictures, the building fell into disrepair and abandonment, but was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1963. A grassroots organization, S. O. S. moved it in February 1976 to the Heritage Square Museum grounds in the Montecito Heights community of the Arroyo Seco. It now serves as the museum's gift visitor center. Slated to be renamed "National/Palms" on re-opening, it remains "Palms" as a result of a request by the Palms Neighborhood Council; the council's resolution stated that: the Pacific Line Palms station was an important landmark on the west side of the city, the community that grew around it is one of the oldest on the west side of Los Angeles. Our stakeholders feel the naming of the station is not only an important branding opportunity for Palms, but an opportunity for Los Angeles to reinstate a link to the history in one of its oldest and most diverse communities. On April 25, 2013, the Metro board of directors voted in favor of "Palms" as the official name of the station.

Palms Casino Resort
Palms Casino Resort is a hotel and casino located near the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It has 703 rooms and suites and contains 94,840 sq ft casino, recording studio, Michelin-starred restaurant and 2,500-seat concert theater; the Fantasy Tower is home to several nightlife venues including Moon Nightclub and The View. The tower holds what are known as the Sky Villas and Fantasy Suites, which are some of the most expensive hotel suites in the world; the two story Sky Villa on the top floor, billed at US$40,000 per night, is listed at number 5 on the World's 15 Most Expensive Hotel Suites compiled by CNN Go in March 2012. The Palms project was first developed by the Maloof family in July 1999, during the Fiesta hotel-casino expansion; the casino resort broke ground in July 2000. The project was announced by George Maloof on October 24, 2000. Construction was completed on September 26, 2001; the Palms opened on November 2001, to a massive crowd of people. Multiple celebrities attended the grand opening, such as Dennis Rodman, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton and Samuel L. Jackson.
In 2002, it was the resort where participants of MTV's The Real World: Las Vegas stayed. The level they rebuilt to accommodate MTV is now the "Real World Suite" billed at $10,000 per night. On October 27, 2005, the second tower, named the "Fantasy Tower", opened at a cost of $600 million. In keeping with George Maloof's basketball interest, the Fantasy Tower includes a two-story, 10,000 sq ft suite that includes the only basketball court in a hotel suite; the suite includes a locker room and multi-screen entertainment system. Some of the other fantasy rooms include the Barbie suite and the King Pin suite; the Palms hit financial trouble in 2010. Under an agreement reached with creditors TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners, they each received a 49% stake in the property in November 2011, in exchange for erasing about $400 million in debt; the Maloof family retains a 2% share, with options to buy back up to 20%, George Maloof continues to manage the property. In May 2016, Station Casinos agreed to purchase the Palms for $313 million.
The company subsequently began a $620 million renovation, renovated portions of the resort began opening in May 2018. The three-phase renovation project was expected to be finished in late 2019. On April 28, 2018, employees voted in favor to unionize the property, it was organized by the Culinary Workers Union. It is the recent Station Casinos property to be unionized; the casino was shown in Britney Spears's music video for her hit song "Everytime", but it was shot in Los Angeles. It was shot for a scene in Eminem's music video, "We Made You", in 2009. In 2009, the Palms Fantasy Tower was the setting for the shooting of Katy Perry's music video "Waking Up in Vegas". In 2009, Mariah Carey Live at The Pearl. After the death of DJ AM, the Palms' logo had the letters A and M lit up to pay tribute to the late musician. Pauly D from Jersey Shore has performed as a resident DJ and he was the celebrity DJ at MTV Spring Break: Las Vegas in March 2011. Since The Ultimate Fighter 5 the UFC has held the series Finale at The Palms.
WEC regularly held events at the Palms with the last event held being WEC 52: Faber vs. Mizugaki on November 11, 2010; the UFC held most of the Ultimate Fighter Finales at the Palms, but as of TUF Season 14, the Finales as of now are held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center or the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with the coaches fighting as the main event. IndyCar holds their annual awards banquet at the resort. In Nitro Circus episode 3 of season, 1 member of the crew jumped off the building while another member had a tattoo set chosen by a roulette wheel; the Palms Casino Resort was home to MTV's The Real World: Las Vegas in 2002. The first seven tournaments of Celebrity Poker Showdown were taped at the Palms in front of a live studio audience; the MTV Video Music Awards were hosted at the Palms in 2007. MTV Spring Break was filmed at the Palms in March 2011 The Palms hosts The Midsummer Night's Dream Party, an annual event, held at the Palms Casino Resort once a year in August; this event is held at the Playboy Mansion.
The Palms hosts The Night of the Killer Costumes, a major Halloween party, held at the Palms the Saturday before Halloween each year. The Palms has hosted the NHL Awards at the Pearl Concert Theater for the last several years. Jersey Shore spin-off, The Pauly D Project was filmed here, starring Pauly D. Apex Social Club - Owned and operated by Andy Masi, Ryan Labbe and Jason “JROC” Craig. Camden Cocktail Lounge Moon Ditch Friday's Rojo Lounge The View The Pearl Concert Theater is a three-level concert venue located within the Palms Resort; the theater seats 2,263 but can be expanded up to 2,549 in a general admission configuration. It was opened in March 2007 with a performance by Evanescence. However, the official grand opening took place April 2007, with a concert by Gwen Stefani. In 2017, the venue underwent a four month renovation project to improve the acoustics of the theater and a redesign of the lobby area; the Palms includes a recording studio, used by many artists, including Jay-Z, Olivia Newton-John, Céline Dion, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry, Carlos Santana, T-Pain
