New Legitimacy : Organized crime was soon to have a formidable adversary in its bid to control Las Vegas β€” corporate cash . Though Las Vegas had developed a powerful local economy , few major outside investments were made in the city , due primarily to mob infiltration and its inherent ties to illegal activities . That would change dramatically with the 1966 arrival of billionaire Howard Hughes . A legitimate businessman , Hughes was nonetheless eccentric and dramatic , a style suited to the Las Vegas ethos . True to the myth , the reclusive Hughes immediately cloistered himself in the Desert Inn 's penthouse . Several weeks later he was asked β€” then ordered β€” to vacate the room to make room for high rollers , whereupon he promptly bought the property and fired the management . Thus began Hughes ' legendary three - year , $ 300-million Las Vegas buying spree . When it was over , Hughes owned six casinos , an airport , and an airline , along with numerous plots of land stretching from the Strip to the mountains . Hughes ' actions would have beneficial repercussions , both immediate and lasting . Because of the new legitimacy Las Vegas acquired from Hughes ' investments , established companies such as Hilton Hotels bought into the gaming business , and their influence helped draw a line in the desert sand between legitimate operations and mob casinos , where illegal skimming of profits was rampant . That , combined with the formation of the Nevada Gaming Control Board , would signal the beginning of the end for heavy mob influence in the city . Las Vegas with a Vision As corporations moved in and the mob was slowly pushed out , a new Las Vegas emerged . The legitimization of gambling led to its increased legalization across the US . What was once a sure thing became much more competitive . Casino operators had to reassess the nature of their business . The first to really do so was Steve Wynn , a Las Vegas resident and owner of the Golden Nugget . In the mid-1980s , Wynn began plans to reinvigorate Las Vegas with a new resort . He bought several Strip properties β€” the Silver Slipper and Castaways among them β€” and demolished them to make way for a new kind of resort β€” Mirage β€” which became an instant success .

New Legitimacy : Organized crime was soon to have a formidable adversary in its bid to control Las Vegas β€” corporate cash . Though Las Vegas had developed a powerful local economy , few major outside investments were made in the city , due primarily to mob infiltration and its inherent ties to illegal activities . That would change dramatically with the 1966 arrival of billionaire Howard Hughes . A legitimate businessman , Hughes was nonetheless eccentric and dramatic , a style suited to the Las Vegas ethos . True to the myth , the reclusive Hughes immediately cloistered himself in the Desert Inn 's penthouse . Several weeks later he was asked β€” then ordered β€” to vacate the room to make room for high rollers , whereupon he promptly bought the property and fired the management . Thus began Hughes ' legendary three - year , $ 300-million Las Vegas buying spree . When it was over , Hughes owned six casinos , an airport , and an airline , along with numerous plots of land stretching from the Strip to the mountains . Hughes ' actions would have beneficial repercussions , both immediate and lasting . Because of the new legitimacy Las Vegas acquired from Hughes ' investments , established companies such as Hilton Hotels bought into the gaming business , and their influence helped draw a line in the desert sand between legitimate operations and mob casinos , where illegal skimming of profits was rampant . That , combined with the formation of the Nevada Gaming Control Board , would signal the beginning of the end for heavy mob influence in the city . Las Vegas with a Vision As corporations moved in and the mob was slowly pushed out , a new Las Vegas emerged . The legitimization of gambling led to its increased legalization across the US . What was once a sure thing became much more competitive . Casino operators had to reassess the nature of their business . The first to really do so was Steve Wynn , a Las Vegas resident and owner of the Golden Nugget . In the mid-1980s , Wynn began plans to reinvigorate Las Vegas with a new resort . He bought several Strip properties β€” the Silver Slipper and Castaways among them β€” and demolished them to make way for a new kind of resort β€” Mirage β€” which became an instant success .

Befitting a lush , tropical island stranded in the middle of the ocean , Madeira ’s origins are shrouded in mystery and fanciful legend . Some claim that the archipelago is what remains of Plato ’s lost Atlantis , or part of a landmass that once fused the continents of Europe and America . The Portuguese Step Ashore : Recorded history of the volcanic archipelago begins in relatively recent times : 1418 , just as the golden age of Portuguese discovery was erupting . Under the leadership of Henry the Navigator , caravels set out from the westernmost point of the Algarve , in southern Portugal , in search of foreign lands , fame , and wealth . JoΓ£o GonΓ§alves Zarco , sailing in the service of Prince Henry , made the first of many famous Portuguese discoveries , which would culminate a century later in Magellan ’s historic circumnavigation of the globe . Zarco happened upon a small volcanic archipelago 1,000 km from Lisbon . Perhaps Zarco knew precisely where he was heading , having learned of the existence of Madeira from a Castilian source . After all , the waters of the Canary Islands , only 445 km ( 275 miles ) to the south , had occupied busy shipping lanes for very nearly a century , and Genovese maps from the mid-14th century depict both Madeira and Porto Santo . More likely , Zarco was heading for Guinea and storms forced him onto the beach of Porto Santo . If so , then he was extremely fortunate , for he managed to land on the only large , sandy beach for hundreds of miles around . Little wonder he subsequently named it Porto Santo ( Holy Port ) . The following year Zarco returned to claim the larger island he had seen from Porto Santo , and with him went TristΓ£o Vaz Teixeira and Bartolomeu Perestrelo . They officially became the first men to set foot on the heavily forested island , naming it Ilha da Madeira , β€œ Island of Timber . ” The Portuguese Crown , delighted with its first important discovery , immediately embarked on a program of colonization . Zarco and Teixeira were appointed co - goΒ­vernΒ­ors of Madeira , while Perestrelo was awarded Porto Santo .

JoΓ£o GonΓ§alves Zarco , sailing in the service of Prince Henry , made the first of many famous Portuguese discoveries , which would culminate a century later in Magellan ’s historic circumnavigation of the globe . Zarco happened upon a small volcanic archipelago 1,000 km from Lisbon . Perhaps Zarco knew precisely where he was heading , having learned of the existence of Madeira from a Castilian source . After all , the waters of the Canary Islands , only 445 km ( 275 miles ) to the south , had occupied busy shipping lanes for very nearly a century , and Genovese maps from the mid-14th century depict both Madeira and Porto Santo . More likely , Zarco was heading for Guinea and storms forced him onto the beach of Porto Santo . If so , then he was extremely fortunate , for he managed to land on the only large , sandy beach for hundreds of miles around . Little wonder he subsequently named it Porto Santo ( Holy Port ) . The following year Zarco returned to claim the larger island he had seen from Porto Santo , and with him went TristΓ£o Vaz Teixeira and Bartolomeu Perestrelo . They officially became the first men to set foot on the heavily forested island , naming it Ilha da Madeira , β€œ Island of Timber . ” The Portuguese Crown , delighted with its first important discovery , immediately embarked on a program of colonization . Zarco and Teixeira were appointed co - goΒ­vernΒ­ors of Madeira , while Perestrelo was awarded Porto Santo .
