Coral reef oases that thrive amid threats give hope for conservation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Amid all the gloomy news about coral reefs from around the world, a glimmer of hope has emerged: scientists have identified coral reef oases that are flourishing despite threats. From mass bleaching events caused by a climate change-induced rise in ocean temperatures, to threats from overfishing, pollution and invasions from coral-devouring sea stars, coral reefs are under attack. But some coral reefs seem to be doing better than their neighbors, according to a new study published in the Journal of Applied Ecology. Over the last 12 to 24 months, bad news about coral reefs has appeared at an alarming rate, notably because of the severe coral bleaching that occurred on the Great Barrier Reef due to the 2016 El Nio, study co-author Peter Edmunds, a marine biologist at California State University, Northridge, U.S., said in a statement. The overall message is Oh my goodness, coral reefs all over the world are dying, and many have already gone. We felt there was a fragment missing from that story. To fill this gap, Edmunds and his colleagues analyzed data from long-term reef-monitoring programs in the Pacific and western Atlantic, and identified 38 coral reefs that have either escaped, resisted or rebounded from declines in coral cover while neighboring coral reefs have not. These reef oases offer hope in times of rapid coral cover loss, the researchers say. I think the concept of oasis reefs really resonates with any coral reef ecologist who has dived extensively on a wide range of reefs, James Guest, a marine biologist

Mt. Gox Creditors May Be Reimbursed in Bitcoin Under Civil Rehabilitation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Japan based Mt. Gox exchange had its bankruptcy stayed because of a petition filed by some of the creditors for the commencement of a civil recovery proceeding in the Tokyo District Court on Nov 24, 2017, and today, on June 22, 2018. Mt. Gox was forced into criminal bankruptcy after more than $473 million in bitcoin was stolen from the exchange in the year 2014. This latest complaint lodged by the creditors provides for more options on how they can be reimbursed. At issue mainly is the exchange rate of bitcoins during the time of the hack, approximately $480 per bitcoin.

By staying in criminal bankruptcy, the creditors would have been paid back in the exchange rate during the time of the filing, but bitcoin has risen in value significantly since then, trading in over $6, 100 per bitcoin today. This change implies that creditors might be paid with regards to the amount of bitcoin lost and not the value of the bitcoin during the time of the loss: a significant difference. Lawyer Nobuaki Kobayashi will act as the civil rehabilitation trustee, but hes not without his own argument. Kobayashi is accountable for selling considerable amounts of bitcoin to pay off the exchanges JPY debts, these sales also coincided with dramatic drops in the price of bitcoin.

At the filing, Kobayashi said, The power and authority to administer and dispose of MTGOXs assets is always devolved exclusively in me, and Ill implement the civil rehabilitation proceedings, including the administration of MTGOXs assets and the investigation of claims, subject to the Tokyo District Courts supervision.,Cryptoground continues to monitor the Mt. Gox purses, that are currently worth almost a billion dollars, but, as noted in the Tokyo District Court Administration Order, Mt. Goxs representative has lost the right to administer and dispose of Mt. Goxs assets. In accordance with filing, the procedure will probably begin in Feb 2019. Intrigued lenders must file a proof-of claim form by October 22, 2018, even people who filed a claim throughout the criminal bankruptcy. For all creditors that missed filing throughout the criminal bankruptcy, this is a brand new window of opportunity to file. The details are available in this document on the Mt. Gox website.

Shooting Wedding Photos on the Little Troll Tongue in Norway "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I did it. The photo I have had in my mind for almost two years was finally taken, and Im proud of the result. Liv Johanne and Rune became (what I believe to be) the first couple to get their wedding photos taken at Himakn, Norway.

Himakn is a rock formation in Norway that has become very famous recently, especially after some exposure in the national media. It is now marketed as Lille Trolltunga, or Little Troll Tongue, because of its resemblance to the internationally renowned rock formation Trolltunga.

I was first made aware of Himakn two years ago when a friend of mine posted a picture of the place on Facebook. The picture was not the best in terms of photographic quality, but the landscape struck me as one of the most epic places I had seen in a long time. I immediately decided that I should go there to try and capture my most eye-catching photo ever.

I came up with a basic idea of taking the photo in springtime/early summer, to be able to show Himakn and the surrounding scenery at its best, with the green valleys below and illuminated by the warm evening sun. But to make the photo stand out even more, I came up with the idea of adding an element of surprise: a wedding photo of a couple on top of the rock formation.

Time went by, and recently photos of this place have been popping up in social media, and it has been given massive national media coverage. If I wanted to be able to take this shot and to be the first to do it, I had to act fast.

So I recently put up a request on my photo page on Facebook in search of a newlywed couple to join me on this adventure to take wedding photos at a cliff all free of charge for the couple.

Liv Johanne and Rune replied on my request, and after talking with them online for a while, we set a date for the shot. Two days before the shot, I hiked up myself to explore the lighting conditions and to find the best moment to take the photos. After deciding on the time, I arranged with the couple to meet me in the parking lot in time for us to get there for the perfect conditions.

The day of the photo shoot, we met for the first time in person in the parking lot at the base of the mountain, and together we hiked up to Himakn. It turned out that they both made for great hiking partners, and it felt like going on a trip with old friends rather than strangers....

Mt. Gox Creditors to Be Reimbursed in Bitcoin Under Civil Rehabilitation

Mt Gox to Enter Civil Rehabilitation in Major Win for Creditors "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Creditors of the defunct bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox just won a large victory. Based on a Friday liberation from Mt. Gob Trustee Nobuaki Kobayashi, the markets ongoing bankruptcy proceedings have been paused and a civil rehabilitation process will begin. The Tokyo District Court issued an order on June 22 approving a request to start civil rehabilitation, that was initially submitted in Nov of last year. Those seeking to recover funds from the exchange once the worlds biggest by trade volume before it dramatically collapsed in the year 2014, leading to hundreds of millions of dollars in losses could see their money sometime in the following year as the civil rehabilitation process moves forward.

Notably, Kobayashis document means that creditors seeking to recover their lost funds in bitcoin might receive larger amounts of money than people who originally sought to be repaid in fiat currency when the exchange began a bankruptcy proceedings. It states: In bankruptcy proceedings, non financial claims are converted into financial claims based on the evaluation as during the time of the commencement of bankruptcy proceedings. In contrast, in civil rehabilitation proceedings, non financial claims arent converted into monetary claims during the moment of commencement of civil rehabilitation proceedings.

Consequently, in the Civil Recovery Proceedings in this issue, claims seeking a refund of bitcoins will also not be converted into monetary claims after the commencement of the civil rehabilitation proceedings.. The document continued, stating that the number of suffrage of bitcoin creditors for resolutions on the proposed rehabilitation plan is based on the evaluation of bitcoins as during the moment of commencement of civil rehabilitation proceedings.. Put simply, Mt. Goxs bitcoin holdings wont must be sold, as has been happening, but can instead be distributed on a professional rata basis. Which implies that future creditors might receive more than $440 per bitcoin, a possibility which has previously been a source of controversy.

Kobayashi will report on the status of Mt. Goxs assets in a creditors meeting on Sept 26 in Tokyo, he wrote. Claimants will then have till October 22, 2018 to file for rehabilitation, including submitting evidence of their claim. A suggestion for fulfilling the rehab requests will then be submitted to the court by Feb 14, 2019, based on Kobayashi. Bitcoin image via Shutterstock.

US Congressman: SECs Stance on Ether Is Encouraging "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Congressman Tom Emmer has praised the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for clarifying that ethereums native cryptocurrency, ether, isnt a security. As previously reported, a week ago, the SECs director of Corporation Finance, William Hinman, told the audience in the Yahoo. All Markets Summit: Crypto Conference That Current offerings and sales of ether arent securities transactions. . With ethereum having assembled an ecosystem around his block and clever contacts platform, a decision that its token has to be governed under securities laws at the U.S. as indicated by some from the regulatory area might have presented major difficulties for the job.

To judge his reaction to the SEC remark, CoinDesk reached out to Emmer, a Republican who has spoken of the need to not on govern blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Like lots of the innovations generated from all of these new technology, ether doesnt fit perfectly into the regulatory boxes Washington has created, Emmer told CoinDesk in a statement. The Minnesota Congressman continued: director Hinman remarks are encouraging, particularly his suggestion that the useful nature of particular technology might provide means toward regulatory certainty, even for assets that once can have been considered a safety. . Further, he said he valued the light touch approach the SEC along with other regulators have taken so far. .

Echoing that view lately was Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney, who told an audience in the Future of Fintech conference on Wednesday that over burdensome regulation isnt great for the nascent sector. While Mulvaney didnt address the SECs ether remark directly, he said we knew at an early stage in bitcoin that, as with any developing financial technology, we needed to find that sweet place. . He said: If we regulate and discourage individuals from entering the market, which has bad implications too. . While some laws are useful, in that they provide consumer protection, others can have an absurd outcome when applied to financial technology, Mulvaney said, adding that he considers it his role to recognize and prevent such problems from occurring.

Emmer concluded on a comparable note, indicating he was optimistic that regulators will take additional measures to ensure limited regulation and encourage investment in the USA. .

Capricorn Full Moon Ritual 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Capricorn Full Moon on June 28th carries some intense energy, but this is nothing to fear. In fact, it is something we need to embrace as we head into the second half of the year.

The tides are turning and the energy is shifting with the upcoming July Eclipses, but before we can enter into the new, we have to wrap up and shed the old.

This Full Moon will be helping us to bring closure to areas of our lives that we have been struggling with. Lessons we have been dealing with since the start of the year are ready to be shed, released, and transformed into something new.

Under the energy of this Capricorn Full Moon, we have to find our strength, and remember that we can accomplish anything. The Universe never sends us anything that we cant handle, and the more we hold that close and work with whatever comes our way, the stronger and more awakened we will become.

This Full Moon Ritual is going to help you center your energy and find your strength. It is going to help you cleanse and bring a sense of gratitude into your life.

Capricorn Full Moon Ritual 2018

This ritual is best done from June 27- July 4, 2018

You will need:

  • Smudging tool of choice
  • Hot water
  • Large teacup or bowl
  • Pen and paper
  • Mixed herbs to make an infused cleansing water (loose leaf herbal tea also works well)

Directions:

1.) Start by smudging (cleansing) your aura and surroundings. As always, start with your aura first and then move to your surroundings. For specific instructions, read this. As you cleanse, recite the following mantra or write your own-

I have worked hard and now my time has come to shed and release. I have worked hard and now the time has come to honor myself and cleanse my body/this space that has held and supported me. I feel nourished and supported. I feel held and I know I am strong.

2.) Let your intuition guide you to the herbs you work with, you can use dried or fresh. Lay your herbs out in front of you.

3.) As you heat your water, pick up one of the herbs you are using. Holding it in your hands, study it or close your eyes and feel into it. Think about what properties or healing the herb is going to offer you. There is no right or wrong, just use your intuition to guide you.

For example, you may pick up a sprig of basil. As you hold it in your hands you feel that it is going to help you find light...

Photographer Captures the Moment a Bison Started Charging at Him in Yellowstone "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bison Charging Willis Chung

It wasn't Willis Chungs first time photographing wildlife at Yellowstone, so he knew to be prepared for anything. But the Denver-based neurologist was in for a surprise in August 2016, when he had an unusual encounter with a bison he was photographing along the Nez Pearce Creek in western central Yellowstone.

Chung, whose love of photography began at 12 years old, used his experience to keep the recommended safety distance of 25 yards between him and the bison as he photographed the animal for over 90 minutes. The lone bison bull was heading back to the hills after mating season, allowing Chung to photograph him while moving along the roadeven taking a 20-minute nap.

Chung also captured the bison while wallowingrolling in the dirt to scratch the areas they can't reach otherwiseall while strapped with 16 pounds of Nikon equipment. But then, as he set down his tripod with a Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR attached to a Nikon D800E, the bison made an unexpected move.

After a few energetic rolls in the dirt, the bull rocked to its feet, snorted, and trotted over directly towards me. I had anticipated this situation and had done some research on Google, Chung tells My Modern Met. I knew my best choice was to head 90 degrees away from the bulls path, constantly changing my direction to keep moving perpendicular to the bulls path. I took a quick handheld photo with the D7100 on a mild telephoto setting, and went to my left, yelling Yea ha!' at the top of my voice and opening my arms wide to look bigger. The bull steered off to the right, and I continued to the left as we made a circle around the camera and tripod I had decided to leave behind.

At that point, Chung realized the bison wasn't interested in him at all. Instead, the animal turned his attention to the tripod, carefully approaching the camera, and satisfied with what he saw, ambling away leaving the equipment intact. Though a bit shaky, Chung was unharmed. What did he do afterward? [I took] a long tea and lunch break and sent thanks to whoever was watching over me from above!

While Chung got some interesting photographs, he...

How To Best Prepare Yourself For The Coming Financial Crisis "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Many financial analysts believe the United States economy is in a dire situation.  Peter Schiff, who accurately predicted the 2008 recession has come out and declared we will all live through another Great Depression, only this time, itll be much worse than before.  But there are ways to prepare for such an event, and weve gathered some helpful tips and tricks to help make the process a little more smooth.

The bad news is, we are going to live through another Great Depression and its going to be very different. This will be in many ways, much much worse, than what people had to endure during the Great DepressionThis is going to be a dollar crisis.

When you are talking about the magnitude of the debt we have, that extra money [raising interest rates] is big. Thats going to be a big drain on the economy to the extent that we have to pay higher interest to international creditorsa lot of this phony GDP is coming from consumption, while the average American who is consuming is deeply in debt and they are going to impacted dramatically in the increase in the cost of servicing that debtgiven how much debt we have, and how much debt is going to be marketed the massive increase in supply will argue for interest rates that are higher. -Peter Schiff

This is the Milky Way Photographed in a Crystal Ball "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photographer and astronomer Juan Carlos Munoz was browsing a flea market in Santiago, Chile, a few days ago when he stumbled across some crystal balls. He bought one for a few dollars and then decided to use it for astrophotography. This cosmic marble photo of the Milky Way in a crystal ball is what resulted.

I went up to Paranal Observatory for an observing shift, and I decided to test the crystal ball as an astrophotography lens, writes Munoz, whos a Photo Ambassador for the ESO. I placed it on the handrails of one of the entrance corridors to the Paranal residencia, and put my tripod and camera below it, at an angle such that the Milky Way was visible through the ball.

Munoz was shooting with a Canon 6D, and he chose to use a Rokinon 24mm lens (at f/4, 30s, and ISO 6400) to capture a wide view of the blurry Milky Way as a backdrop for the crystal ball.

I had to decide which aperture to use, and after a few attempts I chose f/4, Munoz says. Smaller f-numbers yielded a too shallow depth of field: the edge of the ball was too blurry, and the bokeh of the background stars was too large, making it hard to discern the Milky Way. Larger f-numbers allowed very little light through, and also made the bokeh in the background smaller than I wanted.

Munoz is pleased with his result and now recommends that anyone interested in astrophotography buy a crystal ball. He says he has a few crazy ideas in mind for some future photos featuring his ball.

In the foreground, Fsun Onur, Opus II Fantasia (2001/2018), on the walls Bilge Friedlaender, works on paper

NRNBERG, Germany  With the closure of TANAS in 2013, a space for Turkish art in Berlin, spearheaded by the pioneering German gallerist, curator, and publisher Rene Block (an influential figure in Turkish art since the 1990s), it seemed as if the visibility of Turkish art in Europe had been compromised, but times changed. First off, TANAS was never meant to be more than a temporary space, but also, by the 2010s Istanbul had come out of its long slumber, and a number of prominent institutions were operating. A wholly new generation of Turkish artists was emerging, beyond those Block championed. Blocks influence is still felt. His collection is currently housed at the Neues Museum Nrnberg, one of Germanys newest state museums (an incredible Volker Staab design, awash with natural light, that opened in 1999). When a part of his collection of Turkish contemporary art was sold to the Vehbi Koc Foundation in Turkey, Neues Museum Nrnberg and the Koc Foundation (mainly through its Istanbul-based art space ARTER), began a collaboration that would allow art to travel in the other direction as well.

BXB-Miner is a New Cryptonight AMD GPU and CPU Miner "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

There is a new miner on the block called BXB-Miner that supports many different variants of the CryptoNight algorithm intended for AMG GPU miners, though it also supports CPU mining, that comes with a graphical user interface (kind of) as you still need to the the setup in a config file. It is a closed source miner, available only for Windows for the moment, though surprisingly there is no developer fee as we are used to see with most non-opensource miners.

BXB-Miner works with:
Cryptonight
Cryptonight v7
Cryptonight-Heavy (Bixbite, Sumocoin)
New Stellite
New Haven
IPBC, Alloy
Cryptonight Lite
Cryptonight Lite v7

Performance wise the miner does seem to do pretty well compared to other alternatives, though do note that the BXB-Miner is still in early beta, so there is a more work needed to make it more user friendly. Still you might be interested in giving it a try.

Next I will learn you their theyre, and there; There is is masculine, their: is feminine, and theyre are neutral. If a word is ends in A, then you say it is there. End in any another letter and it is their. If you dont know how to spell the word it is theyre. This is a simple mistake but now you know how to not do it anymore

Who and whom is another tricky one Whom is formal and who is informal. I-E If you wanted to a dress some one like the president of the united states then you will say Whom. if you want to address some guy living on street you say who. remember , Whom is a proper pronoun, and so it always should be capitalized.

Least but not last is where to use a , (pronounced comma) versus a ; (pronounced semicomma). A , is a lite pause, and a ; is a heavy. So if you are saying oh hi and you want it to sound very friendly and fun you say oh , hi. But not if you say oh hi and you want it to sound very dramatic and uncomforting when so you say oh ; hi. Thiss a good way to make youre sentences have power, impact.

MIT Engineers Design Responsive 3D-Printed Structures Remotely Controlled by Magnets "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A new concept for 3D printed structures designed by engineers at MIT can be remotely controlled with magnets. The innovative gadgets include a smooth ring that wrinkles up, a long tube that squeezes shut, and a sheet that folds itself. The most impressive structure is a spider-like grabber that can crawl, roll, jump, and snap together fast enough to catch a passing ball or wrap up and carry small objects. Each piece is created using 3D printable ink infused with tiny magnetic particles that are directed into a uniform orientation via printer nozzle retrofitted with a electromagnet.

Researches believe these magnetic concepts could one day find applications in the realm of medicine similar to implanted stents or pacemakers. We think in biomedicine this technique will find promising applications, explains Xuanhe Zhao, the Noyce Career Development Professor in MITs Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. For example, we could put a structure around a blood vessel to control the pumping of blood, or use a magnet to guide a device through the GI tract to take images, extract tissue samples, clear a blockage, or deliver certain drugs to a specific location. You can design, simulate, and then just print to achieve various functions. (via digg)

School Approves Program to Give 13yo Girls Hormone-Altering Drugs Without Parents Consent "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Rachel Blevins

While parental consent is typically required when a student goes on a field trip or is subjected to a vision test in school, students as young 13 years old are being prescribed birth control at a public school in Washington D.C. and they could leave school with a prescription for pills or a newly inserted IUD, without their parents ever being notified.

The program is currently happening at Anacostia High School, a public school in D.C. that has around 450 students, 98.9 percent of whom are African American. Only 1 percent of the students are proficient in Math, and only 4 percent are proficient in English, according to the schools website.

Midwife Loral Patchen, who runs the program at the school and is responsible for administering pregnancy and STD tests, and prescribing various forms of birth control to underage girls, told NPR that the goal is to reduce the rate of teen pregnancy.

States Can Force Online Retailers to Collect Sales Tax: Supreme Court "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Camera gear is about to get more expensive for most online shoppers in the United States. The Supreme Court just ruled that states may force online retailers to collect sales tax on their behalf. While Amazon already does this it has a nexus in every state camera gear giants like B&H and Adorama will now have to follow suit.

In its 5-4 ruling against a coalition of online retailers (Newegg, Overstock, Wayfair), the justices reversed an earlier 1992 ruling that had for years prevented states from requiring businesses with no physical presence in the state to collect sales taxes.

This has long given major online retailers an advantage over local brick-and-mortar stores, as customers increasingly turned to the Internet to avoid higher prices, having to travel to a physical store, and sales tax.

(Out-of-state customers are technically still required to pay a use tax to their state, but its not a law that many people seem to know and/or abide by.)

Each year the physical presence rule becomes further removed from economic reality and results in significant revenue losses to the States, writes Justice Anthony Kennedy, who authored the majority ruling. Rejecting the physical presence rule is necessary to ensure that artificial competitive advantages are not created by this courts precedents.

Ethereums Swarm Moves Closer to Achieving a Decentralized Internet "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Swarm team has announced the immediate release of Swarm client v0.3. Swarm is a distributed storage platform and content distribution service which can facilitate decentralized hosting of websites leading to censorship-resistant content.

Code Merged into Master Branch

The main aim of Swarm is to provide a decentralized store of Ethereums public record. This will store Dapp code and blockchain data. It also allows users to combine their storage and bandwidth resources to ensure that these services can be used by all participants of the network.

Swarm client v0.3 is the third proof-of-concept release (POC3) of the Ethereum Swarm client. It has been deployed to the public Testnet and the Ethereum Foundation is running a cluster of 50 Swarm nodes together with a public web gateway. The POC3 code is now merged into the official go-ethereum repositorys master branch.

From a wider perspective, Swarm will facilitate decentralized web app (Dapp) creation. These include messaging, data streaming, and peer-to-peer accounting. Current Dapps on the Ethereum network include Fork Delta and IDEX, and CryptoKitties which famously caused network difficulties.

Swarm allows users to create websites that are not hosted on one server that could be subject to restrictions, but are based on a peer-to-peer network. This allows for censorship-resistant content that would be hard for governments to take down and could suit sites such as WikiLeaks.

Today, WikiLeaks published a database containing public information about employees of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) which was censored by other sites including Medium, Twitter and Microsoft-owned Github. Microsoft, which has ICE as a client, has been threatened by developers that they will leave the platform unless they drop their support for ICE. This was due to the agency splitting up immigrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border.

We were still learning how to navigate the menus when this giant ship started shooting lasers and missiles everywhere. We dont have any of that cool shit yet.

A New Massive Helen Keller Archive Gets Launched: Take a Digital Look at Her Photos, Letters, Speeches, Political Writings & More "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Take an innocuous statement like, we should teach children about the life of Helen Keller. What reasonable, compassionate person would disagree? Hers is a story of triumph over incredible adversity, of perseverance and friendship and love. Now, take a statement like, we should teach children the political writing of Helen Keller, and you might see brawls in town halls and school board meetings. This is because Helen Keller was a committed socialist and serious political thinker, who wrote extensively to advocate for economic cooperation over competition and to support the causes of working people. She was an activist for peace and justice who opposed war, imperialism, racism, and poverty, conditions that huge numbers of people seem devoted to maintainingboth in her lifetime and today.

Kellers moving, persuasive writing is eloquent and uncompromising and should be taught alongside that of other great American rhetoricians. Consider, for example, the passage below from a letter she wrote in 1916 to Oswald Villard, then Vice-President of the NAACP:

Ashamed in my very soul I behold in my own beloved south-land the tears of those who are oppressed, those who must bring up their sons and daughters in bondage to be servants, because others have their fields and vineyards, and on the side of the oppressor is power. I feel with those suffering, toiling millions, I am thwarted with them. Every attempt to keep them down and crush their spirit is a betrayal of my faith that good is stronger than evil, and light stronger than darkness. My spirit groans with all the deaf and blind of the world, I feel their chains chafing my limbs. I am disenfranchised with every wage-slave. I am overthrown, hurt, oppressed, beaten to the earth by the strong, ruthless ones who have taken away their inheritance. The wrongs of the poor endure ring fiercely in my soul, and I shall never rest until they are lifted into the light, and given their fair share in the blessings of life that God meant for us all alike.

It is difficult to choose any one passage from the letter because the whole is written with such expressiv...

Ofsted chief insists children use flag semaphore instead of phones "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In a crackdown on mobile phone usage, Amanda Spielman has said that students need traditional forms of communication such as a fax, pagers or a typewriter tied to their wrist. Phones are an unwelcome distraction, in marked contrast to having a carrier pigeon stuffed in your blazer.

A spokeswoman confirmed: We dont want students reading or writing on their phones, to divert from reading or writing. Mobiles create low level disruption; whereas as someone leaping up and down with hand-held flags and paddles is stimulating. Semaphore allows colourful social communication plus the child gets a good workout.

Agreed one teacher: Rather than let students text each other, I just encourage them to shout out oi whenever they want. Its more discreet. Just like the signal lamps, we set up. And the proposed changes to cannabis legislation should mean plenty of smoke signals.

Pupils will embrace the communication tools their parents used, such as graffiti on the Science Block. The Ofsted spokeswoman said: Its Facebook not funding that threatens our schools. Students need the confidence to put down their phones and fashion a stylus out of their own excrement. Its about developing writing skills. And, at this school, having read the toilet cubicle wall I can confirm that Dave iz a bender.

NSA Launches Amazon-Backed Cloud-Computing Service For Sharing Top Secret Info "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

Four years after handing Amazon a $600 million contract to develop a cloud-storage service for the US intelligence community that can store information across the full range of data classifications  including Unclassified, Sensitive, Secret, and Top Secret the NSA announced on Thursday that it has moved most of its mission data to a front-end cloud computing system developed by the agency thats supported by you guessed it Amazon and its CEO, Jeff Bezos.

According to NextGov.com, the IC GovCloud, which was created by the NSA but is supported by Amazons web services, will offer similar hosting services to the other 16 members of the US intelligence community. The advantage of having all of these intelligence agencies using the same system, according to NSA Chief Information Officer Greg Smithberger, is that it will allow analysts from across agencies to share information and connect the dots more quickly. But even before the other agencies sign on, the NSA will use the platform to collect, analyze and store classified information in a classified cloud computing environment.

The goal of the platform is to gather all of the signals intelligence that the NSA gathers on foreign targets (and, of course, its myriad spying on the American public) into one centralized location thats easily accessible by its analysts.

The impetus for the multi-year move is getting the NSAs data, including signals intelligence and other foreign surveillance and intelligence information it ingests from multiple repositories around the globe into a single data lake analysts from the NSA and other IC agencies can run queries against.

The NSA has been systematically moving almost all its mission into this big data fusion environment, Smithberger told Nextgov in an interview. Right now, almost all NSAs mission is being done in [IC GovCloud], and the productivity gains and the speed at which our analysts are able to put together insights and work higher-level problems has been really amazing.

Furthermore, the NSA cloud will employ AI and machine learning techniques to allow an...

New report finds white deaths outnumber births in most US states "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Deaths now outnumber births among white people in more than half the states in the US, according to a new report, raising questions about how long the country's whites will remain a majority of the population. A report published by the Applied Population Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that whites are dying faster than they are being born in 26 states, up from 17 states only two years earlier. The sudden spike in the death-to-birth ratio for whites across the country seems to challenge conservative-sounding projections made by the Census Bureau, which has estimated that whites could drop below 50 percent of the population around 2045. The startling figures were likely exacerbated by plummeting fertility rates after the 2008 financial crisis, coupled with rising mortality rates for whites driven in part by drug overdoses, the report said. The results of the report - which examined the period from 1999 to 2016 using data from the National Center for Health Statistics, the federal agency that tracks births and deaths - have surprised even its authors.

Rockabilly Bassist Lands First Ever Kickflip "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Rockabilly bassist Ralph Wadley landed the first ever kickflip with a stand-up bass last night while playing with Corvette Jonny and His Wildcat Orchestra, a move many experts are calling a landmark moment for the genre.


Once the bassist for the Engine Revin Mountain Cats landed that 50-50 grind of her drummers cymbal stand, I knew someone was going to land a kickflip, said Wadley, trying to downplay his historic achievement. So I figured I might as well try it, and it worked.

Im just glad I can help move the genre forward, added Wadley. Just because the music hasnt changed for 60 years, doesnt mean we cant innovate on our bass tricks.

Wadleys bandmates say they were honored to be on stage with him when he landed the trick.

It was unreal. We watched him try it over and over again in our practice space, but he could never land it, said Paul The Hair Sitner, Corvette Jonny and His Wildcat Orchestras drummer. Sure, he learned to ollie on his bass really fast, but the kickflip is a different animal. Hed always land it one-footed, upside down. I cant believe he had the balls to try it live. And it worked!

Related:

Unfortunately, a number of internet commenters have already attempted to discredit the bassist pointing out that Sheila Zehnder, bassist for the street-punk band Spit Walk, landed a kickflip over two decades ago.

Sheilas a cheater. Anyone can do a kickflip on an electric bass. But a stand-up? Thats something else, Wadley retorted. When she switched to stand-up and started playing with Stevie Catz and the Wilin Mad Cats, I saw her try to stick another one, and she totally blew it.

She bit it so hard, he added.

Wadley is reportedly attempting to turn the trick into a money-making endeavor, announcing a new GoFundMe initiative to help him purchase a new bass since his old one now has a foot-shaped hole in it.

The return of patriarchy implications for youth work? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From time to time as worker, trainer, manager and lecturer Ive had cause to bemoan what Ive experienced as the anti-intellectual and anti-theoretical face of youth work. By and large, often understandably as much social theory seeks to impose its template on reality, workers lean to being pragmatic, drawing on what they see as their common-sense. Leave aside that the common-sense of today is neoliberal in its content Im reminded of an argument I had years ago with a group of workers about my use of the notion of racially structured, patriarchal capitalism. Something of a mouthful, I grant you. However, as best I remember it, the discussion about the relationship between, class, gender, sexuality and race was lively, even if the critical consensus was that I should write like I spoke. In the intervening period, the concept of intersectionality has taken centre stage in explaining relations of oppression.

An Illegal Archeological Dig in the West Bank Raises Questions About the Museum of the Bible "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Cliff at Qumran with entrance to 12th Dead Sea Scroll cave during excavation, January 2017 (photograph by Casey L. Olson and Oren Gutfeld, via the Hebrew University)

The Green familys evangelical Museum of the Bible has been funding a number of scholarly projects, including an illegal excavation in the West Bank. This funding could potentially influence the direction of biblical scholarship and will certainly influence how the public understands the Bible and the ancient world.

The Museum of the Bible is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization directed by Steve Green, president of the Hobby Lobby arts and crafts store chain. As a registered nonprofit, the museum is exempt from income taxes but is required to file a Form 990 with the IRS, to justify its tax-exempt status and to provide the public with information about its finances. (These forms are available online from various websites, such as ProPublica.)

Surely when Melania left the house this morning she realised the repugnant thing hanging off her arm. Its so inappropriate, a Democractic Party spokesperson said.

Bitcoin Eyes Bear Revival After Key Support Breached "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bitcoins (BTC) bears might be construction for a strong comeback, with pushed prices to a eight-day reduced below $6,300 earlier on Friday.
The price fell to $6,286 on Bitfinex at 09:50 UTC, the lowest level since June 14, and, at press time, was changing hands at $6,326down around 6 per cent over twenty four hours.
As mentioned yesterday, the cryptocurrencys persistent failure to scale the $6,800 markers in a convincing manner had raised the prospects of another leg down in bitcoin prices.
It appears that procedure is now underway. Bitcoin breached the important support of $6,620 a few hours ago indicating that the relief rally from the June 13 low of $6,108 has ended at $6,850 (June 18 large ) and the bears have recovered control.
The technical graphs now indicate scope for a fall below $6,000 over the weekend.
4-hour chart

BTCs fall below $6,620 has confirmed a rising wedge breakdown a bearish reversal pattern indicating the corrective rally has ended and the broader bearish trend has resumed.
The point is now set for a fall to $5,090 (target as per the measured height procedure, i.e. rod height subtracted from breakdown cost ).
The target looks feasible as the long-term technical graphs will also be biased to the bears.
Weekly chart

As seen above, the pennant breakdown confirmed earlier this month opened downside towards 100-week moving average (MA), currently located at $4,551.
In the mean time, the bearish crossover between the 5-month and 10-month moving averages (MAs) also favors a convincing break beneath the instant support of $6,000 (Feb non ).
View

BTC will probably find acceptance beneath the instant support of $6,000 (Feb low) over the weekend, and could fall to $5,090 (target as per the measured height procedure ) over the next couple of weeks.
A daily close (as per UTC) over $6,850 (June 18 large ) would abort the instant bearish view.
A high volume break over the 50-week MA, currently located at $6,958 would signal long-term bearish invalidation.

New goblin spiders from Sri Lanka named after Enid Blyton characters "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Meet Chippy, Snooky and Tumpy all goblins or brownies from Enid Blytons childrens books, and now the names of new species of tiny spiders that scientists have found lurking in Sri Lankas forests. These new species belong to a spider family called goblin spiders (Oonopidae family), a group of extremely small arachnids, typically measuring just one to three millimeters in length. In all, the team of researchers, led by arachnologist Suresh Benjamin of the National Institute of Fundamental Studies in Sri Lanka, have described nine new species of these goblin spiders in a new study published in Evolutionary Systematics.  Six of the newly described species  Silhouettella snippy, Silhouettella tiggy, Cavisternum bom, Ischnothyreus chippy, Pelicinus snooky, and Pelicinus tumpy have been named after popular characters from Enid Blyton books, including Snooky, a naughty little goblin from The Firework Goblins, and Bom and Tumpy, goblins from The Goblin Looking Glass. We are always looking for names for new species, and this was also the case during the writing of this paper, Benjamin told Mongabay in an email. My son (9) and daughter (6) had discovered some old Enid Blyton books that belonged to me and my two siblings while playing at my parents place. They brought them home and said dada can you read these to us. The first story I read to them was the story of The Firework Goblins.

sewing: tencel twill phoenix blouse "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This post is written by Lindsay of @lindsayinstitches.

Hello Imagine Gnats Readers! Im so excited to share my new enzyme washed tencel twill Phoenix Blouse with you today. This gorgeous fabric hit the shop a few weeks ago, and let me tell you, its even more amazing in person than in the photos.

The depth of color is really remarkable. The Everglade color I used is sold out, but Rachael has since added some other beautiful colorways of this fabric. It is still available in six different colors in the shop!

I hope you saw the outfit Jane posted on the blog on Friday in tencel twill. I can echo her admiration for this fabric. It has amazing fluidity, yet is substantial and not as delicate as fabrics you would usually expect with this much drape. One side of the fabric has a sheen to it and the other is more flat and muted.

I went with the flat side which I would say in most fabrics is typically the wrong side. Though, in the case of an enzyme washed fabric, I really have no idea if that is correct. Either way, you cant go wrong using either side of this glorious stuff ;)

Over the past few years of garment making, I continue to learn more about what shapes best suit both my body and style. For bottoms, I prefer high-waisted options for the my pear-ish shape. Also, I hate feeling like Im tugging my pants up all the time.

For tops to flatter that, I typically do the half-tuck with standard length tops. I know a cropped blouse would also achieve the same proportions and have a more elevated look than my usual knit tees. Unfortunately, I didnt really have anything summery in my closet or sewing pattern inventory that fit that description until now.

Penguin: Amazon Central Versus Peer to Peer Decentral. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Emin Gun Sirer: Good post [by David Rosenthal] on why peer to peer storage projects face an uphill battle, which will likely end downhill, in Amazons lap.

Phi Beta Iota: Absolutely essential reading. Robert Steele comments at end.

Im David Rosenthal, and this is a place to discuss the work Im doing in Digital Preservation.

The Four Most Expensive Words in the English Language

There are currently a number of attempts to deploy a cryptocurrency-based decentralized storage network, including MaidSafe, FileCoin, Sia and others. Distributed storage networks have a long history, and decentralized, peer-to-peer storage networks a somewhat shorter one. None have succeeded; Amazons S3 and all other successful network storage systems are centralized.

Despite this history, initial coin offerings for these nascent systems have raised incredible amounts of money, if you believe the heavily manipulated markets. According to Sir John Templeton the four words are this time is different. Below the fold I summarize the history, then ask what is different this time, and how expensive is it likely to be?

The idea that the edge of the Internet has vast numbers of permanently connected, mostly-empty hard disks that could be corralled into a peer-to-peer storage system that was free, or at least cheap, while offering high reliability and availability has a long history. The story starts:

A long, long time ago in a computer far, far away.

The realization that networked personal computers need a shared, remote file system in addition to their local disk, like many things, starts with the Xerox Alto and its Interim File Server, designed and implemented by David R.

A Brief, Visual Introduction to Surrealism: A Primer by Doctor Who Star Peter Capaldi "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Surrealism, according to this short Unlock Art video from the Tate, began in Paris, at the cafe Les Deux Magots, in 1924. You can still go there, but among its habitus you won't find the fellow on whom the camera zooms in: Andr Breton, author of the Surrealist Manifesto. That influential text drew inspiration from the work of Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis, specifically his book The Interpretation of Dreams.

"Breton believed art and literature could represent the unconscious mind," says the video's narrator Peter Capaldi, well known as one of the Doctors of Doctor Who. He then names some artists who agreed with Breton on this point, such as Salvador Dal, Max Ernst, Joan Mir, and Rene Magritte just a few of the Surrealists. "Surreal," as an adjective, has perhaps fallen victim to debasement by overuse in the past 84 years. But Breton had specific ideas about Surrealism's potential effects, its sources of power, and its methods.

Desire, for instance, "was central to the Surrealist vision of love, poetry, and liberty. It was the key to understanding human beings." Surrealist artistic practices included putting objects "that were not normally associated with one another together, to make something that was playful and disturbing at the same time in order to stimulate the unconscious mind." Think of Dal's 1936 Lobster Telephone, made out of those very objects. "It's about food and sex," Capaldi pronounces. The Surrealist vision also extended to more complicated endeavors, such as elaborate paintings and films that still fascinate today.

You can catch up on Surrealist film here on Open Culture, beginning with Luis Buuel & Salvador Dal's nightmarish 1929 short Un Chien Andalou, continuing on to the Surrealist feature Dreams That Money Can Buy (a collaboration by the likes of Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder, Fernand Lger and Hans Richter), and the history of Surrealist cinema as presented by David Lyn...

Trip Recap: Kauai with a Toddler & New Baby "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Thank you to HomeAway and The Westin Princeville for sponsoring part of the cost of our accommodations. All opinions and recommendations are my own.

I finally finished my Kauai trip recap! Are you ready? It's a long one. The funny thing is, Hawaii was not at the top of my travel bucket list before this trip. However, we had a companion pass and some flight credit that we could only use on domestic flights, plus Ian was still under two (barely) so he could fly free as a "lap infant." We knew June would be our last chance to take advantage of that before we'd have to buy him a full price ticket, so we decided it was a good time to visit one of the Hawaiian islands. So many friends of ours have raved about Kauai, and after a bit of research, it definitely seemed like the island that would align most with our travel style. Annnnnd...we loved it! It was SO beautiful and much less crowded, touristy, and clich than I expected Hawaii to be. We didn't have the best weather (lots of rain), but we still had the best time, and we already can't wait to go back. And now I want to see the other Hawaiian islands too!

VeChain Hype Intensifies With Major Partnership and Mainnet Launch "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

VeChain has gained support from new partnerships with DB Schenker and PwC, ahead of its highly anticipated mainnet launch.

VeChain in Last Stages of Preparation Before Mainnet Launch

VeChain has posted their official launch schedule to Twitter comments are a mixed bag of congratulations and questions about how to convert existing VEN to the new VET token.

 

Once the launch takes place most exchanges are expected to handle the token conversion, swapping the ERC20 VEN tokens to the new VET symbol. Users should look for a message from their exchanges that they are on board and ready to make the change.

For those keeping their tokens in their own wallet and dont plan to transfer them over to an exchange for the mainnet launch, theres another way to manage the exchange. Once the mainnet is launched any VEN tokens can be transferred to a new wallet to be released by VeChain that will effectively make the swap from VEN to VET for the owner.

After the swap, every single VEN token will be converted to 100 VET. This is designed into the mainnet launch to facilitate smaller transactions, as well as some of VeChains use cases such as IoT. For example, VeChain is currently being sold at 3.10$ per unit, after the swap the VET unit is being traded at the price of 0.31$ per one unit. Though the change creates more coins for the user the overall fiat value stays the same.

VeChain understands that the token swap will take some time to complete, so they will allow VEN and VET to coexist for a while so that all holders would have enough time to get through the process of the transition. After the mainnet launching, all exchanges for VET will be closed. Investors can book trades on their exchanges but the price wont be available until the first trade of the newly swapped coin is processed through an exchange that had listed the VEN...

PMID:  Oncol Lett. 2018 Apr ;15(4):4657-4661. Epub 2018 Jan 29. PMID: 29552109 Abstract Title:  Effect of quercetin glucosides fromextracts on HepG2, PC-3 and HT-29 cancer cell lines. Abstract:  The present study investigated the effects of quercetin glucosides, which were isolated from the Chinese onion (), garlic (), onion (L.) and the Welsh onion (L.) in HepG2, HT-29 and PC-3 cancer cell lines. Quercetin-3,4'-di-O-glucoside (3,4'-Qdg) and quercetin-4'-O-glucoside (4'-Qmg) comprise ~98% of the flavonoids in the methanol extract of onion. A small amount of 3,4'-Qdg is present in the Welsh onion and Chinese onion, whereas 4'-Qmg is also present in the Welsh onion. In HepG2 cells, 4'-Qmg was demonstrated to exhibit more significant growth inhibition compared with 3,4'-Qdg and quercetin 3--D-glucoside, but exhibited less inhibitory effects in PC-3 and HT-29 cells. These results suggest the anti-proliferative potential of 4'-Qmg in various cancer cell lines and the health benefits of the genus. The findings indicate the potential of 4'-Qmg as an anticancer agent for further development.

Japans Financial Watchdog Orders AML Shake-Up at 6 Crypto Exchanges "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Japans financial watchdog has issued business improvement orders to six accredited cryptocurrency trades following on the site inspections conducted within recent months. According to an announcement made by the Financial Services Agency on Friday, the regulator is currently ordering bitFlyer, QUOINE, BTC Box, Bit Bank, Tech Office and Bit Point to better their internal auditing and user protection systems. Consequently, bitFlyer has declared that its stopped accepting new clients so as to reexamine the IDs of particular customers. The firm told CoinDesk the bitFlyer is working closely with the FSA and will restart onboarding as soon as possible. The exchange has also supplied a significant list of forthcoming improvements to various systems, including consumer protection, information protection, risk management, listing with new and much more, based on the purchase.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, the FSA started inspections at accredited platforms in Apr as part of its increasing scrutiny of domestic trades following the $530 million hack on Coincheck before this year. Todays news confirms suggestions a week ago that the agency will move to force some trades to improve their anti money laundering procedures, however, going by the FSA notice, the requirements are more wide ranging. As a consequence of the order, the six trades are now needed to file a written report to the FSA on the advancement of their system improvements from July 23. Till they have the ability to meet the regulators full requirements, the FSA said the trades should continue filling additional reports from the 10th of each month. FSA picture via Shutterstock.

Only a Third of the Richest Were Informed on Crypto

The collective wealth of the worlds millionaires went up to US$70 trillion for the first time, and they will have amassed US$100 trillion by 2025, a survey released earlier this week revealed. The Capgemini World Wealth Report 2018 found that rich people are increasingly interested in cryptocurrencies, but only about half of them are happy with their wealth managers, Reuters reported. Only a third of these millionaires said they got information about cryptocurrencies from their asset managers.

Twenty nine percent of these high net wealth individuals, (HNWIs) defined by the Capgemini investigation reportedly expressed a high interest in buying or holding cryptocurrencies, and twenty seven percent said they were just overall interested in the topic. Although the general public is still skeptical about cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, an increasing amount of people express a wish to understand it better.

What Trump Could Learn From Anna Freud About Parentless Kids "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Seventy-five years ago in the midst of World War II, Anna Freud, the daughter of Sigmund Freud, and her close friend, Dorothy Burlingham, published their classic study, War and Childrendocumenting the impact that separating children from their parents had during a time when England was under attack from Nazi Germany.

In story after story, Freud and Burlingham illustrated how acutely children suffer even when they are separated from parents in the country of their birth and placed among skilled caregivers with the best of intentions. Nothing is dated about their conclusions, which have become still more relevant with new reports that the Trump administration is considering erecting a tent city at Fort Bliss in Texas to deal with the overflow of separated immigrant children it has created.

Psychiatrists Depression Shapes His Treatment of Young People "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I try not to blame people: the children and young people who have so often been blamed for their own distress and have felt so guilty that they have blamed themselves; parents and carers who are unable to understand what children are going through and are often just as needy of help; fellow professionals, who are desperate to help but are clinically trained and emotionally more comfortable with traditional ways of doing things.

So, yes, we are in danger of overdiagnosing distressed children and reaching too quickly for a prescription more appropriate for adult illness. But I understand why. Showing how a young person might fulfill or not a set of criteria and dishing out a course of pills is very obviously doing something, and the pressure to do something is huge.

Identification and quantification of flavonoids from two southern Italian cultivars of red onion and copper onion. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Agric Food Chem. 2015 Jun 3 ;63(21):5229-38. Epub 2015 May 22. PMID: 25965971 Abstract Title:  Identification and Quantification of Flavonoids from Two Southern Italian Cultivars of Allium cepa L., Tropea (Red Onion) and Montoro (Copper Onion), and Their Capacity to Protect Human Erythrocytes from Oxidative Stress. Abstract:  Onions (Allium cepa) are consumed worldwide and represent an important source of dietary phytochemicals with proven antioxidant properties, such as phenolic acids, flavonoids, thiosulfinates, and anthocyanins. Epidemiological and experimental data suggest that regular consumption of onions is associated with a reduced risk of degenerative disorders. Therefore, it is of interest to investigate the biological properties of different varieties of onions. Here, we characterized for the first time a variety of onion, called Ramata di Montoro (coppery onion from Montoro), grown in a niche area in southern Italy, and compared its phenolic profile and antioxidant properties to a commercial ecotype of red onion, Tropea, also present in southern Italy. An analytical method based on high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with UV detection and mass spectrometry was used to separate and characterize the phenolic fraction (anthocyanins and flavonols) extracted from both coppery and red types. The main compounds detected in the two ecotypes were quercetin and quercetin glucosides, isorhamnetin glucosides, kaempferol glucoside, and, among anthocyanins, cyanidin glucosides. Tropea ecotype onion showed a higher content of flavonols (632.82 mg/kg fresh weight) than Montoro type onion (252.91 mg/kg fresh weight). Accordingly, the antioxidant activity of the former was 2.8-fold higher compared to the latter. More pronounced were the differences existing between the four anthocyanins detected in the two ecotypes, with those in the Tropea ecotype onion present at concentrations 20-230-fold higher than in the Montoro type onion. Both extracts reduced LDL oxidation about 6-fold and protected human erythrocytes from oxidative damage induced by HClO by about 40%. In addition, as a consequence of HClO treatment, glutathione concentration in erythrocytes was reduced about 50% and pretreatment with onion extracts induced a recovery of glutathione level by about 15-22%. Qualitative differences highlighted in the chemical composition of the two phenolic extracts, especially the total content of anthocyanins, which was 30-fold higher in Montoro type onion compared to Tropea ecotype, can be associated with the protective effects measured against oxidative damage induced in human erythrocytes.

Raw red onion consumption appears to be effective as a cholesterol-lowering food agent in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Obstet Gynaecol Res. 2014 Apr ;40(4):1067-76. Epub 2014 Mar 10. PMID: 24612081 Abstract Title:  Effects of raw red onion consumption on metabolic features in overweight or obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome: a randomized controlled clinical trial. Abstract:  AIM: We aimed to evaluate the effects of raw red onion consumption on metabolic features in overweight and obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome.MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this randomized controlled clinical trial, the patients (n=54) were randomly allocated to the intervention group as 'high-onion' (raw red onions: 2 40-50 g/day if overweight and 2 50-60 g/day if obese) or to the control group as 'low-onion' (raw red onions: 2 10-15 g/day) along with limited liliaceous vegetables for 8 weeks. Body mass index, dietary record, and metabolic parameters (fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and lipoprotein (a)) were evaluated in the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle at baseline and after 8 weeks. Hormonal variables (progesterone, prolactin, and 17-OH progesterone) were also measured at baseline.RESULTS: Onion significantly decreased the levels of total cholesterol within each group; however, these changes were stronger in the high-onion group (weighted mean differences [WMD]: -5.60 [95% confidence interval [CI]: -9.16, -2.03]; P=0.003) than in the low-onion group (WMD: -6.42 [95%CI: -11.97, -0.87]; P=0.025). Similarly, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol decreased significantly (WMD: -5.13 [95%CI: -9.46, -0.81); P=0.022) in the high-onion group, and (WMD: -2.90 [95%CI -5.57, -0.21]; P=0.035) in the low-onion group after treatment. The levels of fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and lipoprotein (a) did not differ significantly after 8-week onion treatment. Adjustment for confounders did not make any significant changes in any of the parameters in post-treatment levels.CONCLUSION: Raw red onion consumption appears to be effective as a cholesterol-lowering food agent in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. However, further investigation is warranted.

Charles Hoskinson calls out the mainstream medias constant predictions on the death of the cryptocurrency Ponzi scheme scam bubble on Twitter predicting an influx of trillions of dollars from institutional markets once the next round of regulation is settled.

Hoskinson Calls Doom and Gloom Media Reports

There hasnt been a day gone by since Bitcoin entered into the collective consciousness during its unprecedented 2017 bull run, carrying along with it along the terms cryptocurrency, blockchain, and digital money, that a headline hasnt appeared warning the public of its inevitable demise and the financial destruction which would encompass all in the space.

With old money market bears like Warren Buffet calling the entire industry rat poison and headline-grabbing institutional heads like Mark Carney of the Bank of England calling for the fall of cryptocurrency every chance he gets, its refreshing to have a crusading voice on the side of the industry make a loud prediction every once in a while. It doesnt hurt that in this case, that voice belongs to the founder of both Ethereum and Cardano Charles Hoskinson.

As Colombia expands its palm oil sector, scientists worry about wildlife "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The large-scale expansion of oil palm has been a major driver of deforestation and biodiversity loss in many areas of the tropics. In Malaysia and Indonesia, where 85 percent of the worlds oil palm is cultivated, rampant industry growth over the past several decades has replaced rainforest with monoculture plantations, devastating wildlife in the process and leading Indonesia to issue bans on further expansion. But as demand for palm oil continues to rise, other countries are looking to pick up the slack. Colombias oil palm industry aims to overtake Thailand to become the worlds third largest supplier of the plant-based oil commonly found in household products such as snack foods, ice cream, cosmetics as well as biofuels. Known as a mega-biodiverse country, Colombia claims 74 distinct natural ecosystems with a biodiversity rate second only to Brazil. The country occupies 0.22 percent of the earths surface area but it houses about 10 percent of the species currently known on the planet. Palm oil is produced by pressing the fruit of oil palm trees, which grow in bunches. According to the Environment Vice Minister Carlos Alberto Botero Lpez, Colombia boasts fertile soils, but 40 percent have been degraded. The degradation processes that most affect Colombian soils are erosion, urban constructions and infrastructure, pollution from toxic substances, organic matter loss, salinization and desertification. Further, Colombias forests and natural ecosystems are disappearing at an accelerating rate as deforestation shot up following a historic 2016 peace deal with the countrys formerly largest rebel group, the

Introducing the Single Element Pattern "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Rules and best practices for creating reliable building blocks with React and other component-based libraries.

Back in 2002when I started building stuff for the webmost developers, including me, structured their layouts using

 tags.

Only in 2005 did I start following web standards.

When a web site or web page is described as complying with web standards, it usually means that the site or page has valid HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The HTML should also meet accessibility and semantic guidelines.

I learned about semantics and accessibility, then started to use proper HTML tags and external CSS. I was proudly adding those W3C Badges to every web site I made.

The HTML code we wrote was pretty much the same as the output code that went to the browser. That means that validating our output using the W3C Validator and other tools was also teaching us how to write better code.

Time has passed. To isolate reusable parts of the front end, I've used PHP, template systems, jQuery, Polymer, Angular, and React. This latter, in particular, I have been using for the past three years.

As time went on, the code we wrote was getting more and more different from the one served to the user. Nowadays, were transpiling our code in many different ways (using Babel and TypeScript, for example). We write ES2015+ and JSX, but the output code will be just HTML and JavaScript.

Currently, even though we can still use W3C tools to validate our web sites, they don't help us much with the code we write. We're still pursuing best practices to make our code more consistent and maintainable. And, if you're reading this article, I guess you're also looking for the same thing.

And I have something for you.

The Single Element Pattern (Singel)

I don't know exactly how many components I've written so far. But, if I put Polymer, Angular and React together, I can safely say that this number is over a thousand.

Besides company projects, I maintain a React boilerplate with more than 40 example components. Also, I'm working with Raphael Thomazella, who also contributed to this idea, on a ......

Shadow Over $83.7 Billion Energy Deal with China Looms Large "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Secretary Thrasher removed from Commerce

Cancellation of trip by China Energy execs casts hush over West Virginia deal

From an Article by Brad McElhinny, WV MetroNews, June 19, 2018

CHARLESTON, W.Va. Executives from China Energy who had been set to attend a petrochemical conference canceled their visit because of ongoing strain over trade, said Brian Anderson, director of the WVU Energy Institute.

Weeks ago, those involved with the potential $83 billion Chinese investment in West Virginia natural gas projects had hoped the executives would be able to make a specific project announcement during their visit, Anderson said.

Backing up a couple months we really were hoping we could have a project to be announced on this visit. It wasnt a cancellation of an announcement, but its not at the point a project can be announced with the leadership canceling their visit, Anderson said today on MetroNews Talkline.

Anderson first described the cancellation of the visit by China Energy executives during his own presentation at the Northeast U.S. Petrochemical Construction Conference in Pittsburgh. His comments were picked up by trade journalists who were covering the conference.

The comments also set off a buzz among those in attendance, said Curtis Wilkerson, president of Orion Strategies, which performs communications and marketing services for West Virginias natural gas industry. Wilkerson is attending the conference.

Thats probably the buzz thats going on the most here, Wilkerson said this morning. People then questioning the total investment and how thats going and what are the possibilities. Theyre not exactly saying its not happening. Theyre just raising questions.

State officials made a splash last November by announcing the possibility of an $83 million investment in West Virginia over 20 years.

Then-Commerce Secretary Woody Thrasher traveled to China to sign a memorandum of understanding with China Energy while President Donald Trump looked on.

Gov. Jim Justice spoke with excitement about the sheer amount of the potential investment. For crying out loud, it absolutely takes your breath,....

NHS to start publishing surgeons golf handicaps "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Vascular surgeons are to become the first to have their golfing performance data published by the NHS, including information on their handicaps, driving distance, putting accuracy and average bar spend. It will appear in the next edition of the Telegraphs golfing supplement.

The public have the right to know how their surgeon is performing on the fairways and the greens, said Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt. It is only through transparency on performance that the public can have confidence in the golfing prowess of the person taking a knife to them.

But the move has been overshadowed by some surgeons refusing to have their data published, leading to speculation that they spend all their time hacking the ball out of the rough or bunkers. Mr Hunt has confirmed these surgeons will be challenged to a 9-hole MPs-versus-consultants play-off at Wentworth with the losing team buying dinner.

The Health Secretary has defended the move. When youre about to be opened up for a heart transplant, which surgeon would you want operating on you: the one who can hole a 10ft putt or the one who regularly tees off into the water? Its pretty obvious.

Red onion scales ameliorated streptozotocin-induced diabetes and diabetic nephropathy. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2018 Jun ;140:253-264. Epub 2018 Apr 5. PMID: 29626589 Abstract Title:  Red onion scales ameliorated streptozotocin-induced diabetes and diabetic nephropathy in Wistar rats in relation to their metabolite fingerprint. Abstract:  AIM: The present study was designed to investigate the effect of red onion scales extract (ROS) against diabetic nephropathy, in relation to its metabolic profiling.METHODS: Four groups of male Wistar rats were assigned as follows; 1st untreated group, 2nd group (animals with diabetes) treated with streptozotocin (STZ, 50mg/kg) IP, 3rd group co-treated with ROS (150mg/kg+STZ, 50mg/kg) and 4th group co-treated with ROS by a dose (300mg/kg+STZ, 50mg/kg) daily. After four weeks, random and fasting blood glucose (FBG) levels, serum insulin, advanced glycation end products (AGEs), urea, uric acid and inflammatory and fibrotic gene expression were evaluated. Moreover, histopathological examination of the renal tissues was performed. In addition, the metabolic profiling of ROS was performed via RP-HPLC-DAD-QTOF-MS and -MS/MS.RESULTS: The metabolic profiling of ROS revealed that protocatechuic acid and cyanidin-3-O-glucoside were the predominant compounds among 32 metabolites identified in the extract. ROS treated groups showed improvement of FBG and AGEs levels, whereas serum insulin level showed significant elevation. In addition, down-regulation of inflammatory mRNA expression associated with the hyperglycemic condition and amelioration in histopathological alterations in kidney tissues were observed.CONCLUSION: This study displayed the presence of 32 phenolic compounds in the ethanolic extract of ROS, a common by-product of the industrial production of onion in Egypt. This study proved the therapeutic potential of ROS as antidiabetic agent and its preventive effect against diabetic nephropathy.

The aim of this review is to examine the role of chronic inflammation and the sympathetic nervous system in the development of obesity and PCOS. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Semin Reprod Med. 2015 Jul ;33(4):257-69. Epub 2015 Jul 1. PMID: 26132930 Abstract Title:  The Emerging Role of Chronic Low-Grade Inflammation in the Pathophysiology of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Abstract:  Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has become increasingly common over recent years and is associated with reproductive features as well as cardiometabolic risk factors, including visceral obesity, dyslipidemia and impaired glucose homeostasis, and potentially cardiovascular disease. Emerging evidence suggests that these long-term metabolic effects are linked to a low-grade chronic inflammatory state with the triad of hyperinsulinemia, hyperandrogenism, and low-grade inflammation acting together in a vicious cycle in the pathophysiology of PCOS. Dysregulation of the sympathetic nervous system may also act as an important component, potentially creating a tetrad in the pathophysiology of PCOS. The aim of this review is to examine the role of chronic inflammation and the sympathetic nervous system in the development of obesity and PCOS and review potential therapeutic options to alleviate low-grade inflammation in this setting.

Stimulation of systemic low-grade inflammation by psychosocial stress. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Psychosom Med. 2014 Apr ;76(3):181-9. PMID: 24608036 Abstract Title:  Stimulation of systemic low-grade inflammation by psychosocial stress. Abstract:  Psychosocial stress is an important precursor of disease and reduced quality of life in humans. The biological pathways between stress exposure and pathophysiological processes underlying disease have received substantial scientific attention, although the roles of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and sympathetic nervous system remain insufficiently understood. Recent attention has focused on chronic systemic low-grade inflammation as a promising pathway because elevated inflammation often accompanies chronic psychosocial distress. These alterations of inflammatory activity play a key role in the pathophysiology of diseases that are adversely affected by chronic distress, such as cardiovascular disease. Transient increases in systemic inflammation are observed in response to acute psychosocial stress, with larger responses among individuals reporting adverse psychosocial states or conditions such as depression, lower self-esteem, or lower self-compassion. Recent evidence shows that lower subjective social status and perceived purpose in life are associated with sensitization of inflammatory stress responses to repeated stress exposure. The aims of this selective review article are to summarize current knowledge of the role of acute and chronic psychosocial stress on low-grade inflammation in humans and to discuss potential relationships between inflammatory responses to acute psychosocial stress and long-term development of disease.

Cryptocurrency Transactions Surpass Credit Card Sales at Silicon Valley Jewelry Retailer "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Stephen Silver, the CEO at Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry, has revealed that after four years of integrating Bitcoin in 2014, cryptocurrency transactions have surpassed credit card sales at the retail shop and 20 percent of the companys sales are now attributable to cryptocurrency.

Silver, who had previously led Stephen Silver Fine Jewelry to become the first jewelry retailer in the world to accept cryptocurrency back in 2014, said:

Cryptocurrency has surpassed the volume of retail credit-card purchases in the company in a very short time period. Weve created revenue that the company would not even enjoy without being able to accept cryptocurrency. Large sums of money are where we are finding cryptocurrency to be a huge advantage.

Why it Works at Jewelry and Real Estate Industry

Last year, investors of a few hundred million dollar property development project in Dubai were taken aback by the decision of the project managers to accept payments in Bitcoin for the sale of its apartments and commercial spaces.

At the time, Lingerie tycoon Michelle Mone and her billionaire business partner Doug Barrowman announced that the sale of a $327 million property in Dubai will primarily be processed in Bitcoin. In a matter of weeks, 50 luxury flats in Dubai were sold in Bitcoin, to customers that had to convert fiat to the dominant cryptocurrency to purchase the 50 apartments.

We allocated 50 out of 1,300 developments. Weve sold all out. Some bought ones and twos, and one individual bought ten, said Mone, who added that Barrowman decided to accept cryptocurrencies because he was frustrated Bitcoin was not being used enough by retailers and businesses.

For retailers and business owners in the jewelry and real estate industry, accepting payments in Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies can be significantly cheaper and more efficient than bank transfers because of the high fees required by financial institutions and the three to five business-day transaction processing periods of banks.

In an interview with CNN, Garrick Hileman, an economic historian at the University of Cambridge and the London School of Economics, said that economically, accepting payments in Bitcoin makes sense for expensive products and properties because with items that cost in the range of $10,000 to $1 million, transaction fees sent to banks can easily surpass the $1,000 to $50,000 mark.

Cardano Price Analysis: ADA/USD Extending Losses "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • ADA price traded further lower and broke the $0.1550 support against the US Dollar (tethered).
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance near $0.1555 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair (data feed via Bittrex).
  • The pair is currently in a downtrend and it could break the $0.1500 support for more losses.

Cardano price failed to recover against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD tumbled and it remains at a risk of more losses below the $0.1550 level.

Cardano Price Analysis

During the past few sessions, there was an increase in selling pressure on ADA price below $0.1660 against the US Dollar. The ADA/USD pair failed to break the $0.1650 resistance and started a downside move. It broke down and cleared the $0.1600 and $0.1550 support levels to settle below the 100 hourly simple moving average. More importantly, the price settled below a key support at $0.1550, opening the doors for more declines.

During the slide, the price surpassed the last swing low near $0.1557. It means the price may perhaps test the 1.236 Fib extension level of the last wave from the $0.1557 low to $0.1708 high at $0.1522. However, if sellers remain in action, there is even a chance of further losses towards the $0.1500 level. Below this, the next support is at $0.1450. On the other hand, if the price corrects higher, it could test the $0.1550 resistance zone. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance near $0.1555 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair.

Cardano Price Analysis ADA USD

The chart indicates the price is likely to move down further towards the $0.1500 handle. The overall price action is bearish, which is why any recoveries above $0.1555 and $0.1600 may be limited in the near term.

Korean Government to Lead 6 Blockchain Pilots With $9 Million Fund "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The South Korea government will invest 10 billion Korean won to support blockchain development within the country, with plans to carry out six pilots using blockchain technology. Based on a report from CoinDesk Korea, the countrys Ministry of Science and ICT published a blockchain development strategy on Thursday. The agency said the government plans to invest $9 million in total till the end of 2019 as part of the countrys aspiration for a medium- to long term plan for expanding blockchain technology. With that, the ICT ministry said it may take the lead to work with some other government agencies to drive blockchain pilots into the public sector.

The works will concentrate on livestock logistics management, traditions clearance, on-line voting, real estate transactions, cross border e document distribution and shipping logistics. The main goal, in accordance with the document, is to improve the info sharing efficiency and transparency in these public services by utilizing a distributed network. For example, the ICT ministry explained that itll collaborates with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to deploy a system that updates the info of livestock from their breeding, shipping to sales on a distributed book. As such, every part of the supply chain that functions as a node on the blockchain can be informed more quickly in order that in case of a problem, the follow-up period might be reduced from six days to less than ten minutes, the document said.

Similarly, the blockchain aviator on the real estate sector will be carried out with the Ministry of Lands and Transport. It expects that by integrating real estate, tax and legal services with a blockchain, the real estate transactions can become more streamlined and effective for consumers since their info can be shared automatically among different parties. Well set a roadmap for developing blockchain technology and plan to secure ninety percent of the technology level by 2022 when compared to the world top nations, the agency said. Additionally, the ministry said will invest 800 million won a year for up to six years to expand a blockchain research center.

The goal is to educate students on the nascent technology and also to nurture 10, 000 blockchain specialists by 2022. Seoul landscape image through Shutterstock.

Bill Murray Explains How He Pulled Himself Out of a Deep, Lasting Funk: He Took Hunter S. Thompsons Advice & Listened to the Music of John Prine "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Judging by the outpouring of affection in online comment sections, Chicago folk musician John Prine has helped a great many of his fans through tough times with his humanist, oft-humorous lyrics.

Add funny man Bill Murray to the list.

Taping a video in support of The Tree of Forgiveness, Prines first album of new material in over a decade, Murray recalled a grim period in which a deep funk robbed him of all enjoyment. Though he carefully stipulates that this bummer could not be diagnosed as clinical depression, nothing lifted his spirits, until Gonzo journalist Dr. Hunter S. Thompsonwhom Murray embodied in the 1980 film, Where the Buffalo Roamsuggested that he turn to Prine for his sense of humor.




Murray took Thompsons advice, and gave his fellow Illinoisian's double greatest hits album, Great Days, a listen.

This could have backfired, given that Great Days contains some of Prines most melancholyand memorablesongs, from "Hello in There" and "Angel from Montgomery" to "Sam Stone," voted the 8th saddest song of all time in a Rolling Stone readers' poll.

But the song that left the deepest impression on Murray is a silly country-swing number "Linda Goes to Mars," in which a clueless husband assumes his wifes vacant expression is proof of interplanetary travel rather than disinterest.

To hear Murray tell it, the moment was not one of gut-busting hilarity, but rather one of self-aware...

Low-grade systemic inflammation and the development of metabolic diseases. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Cir Cir. 2015 Nov-Dec;83(6):543-51. Epub 2015 Jul 6. PMID: 26159364 Abstract Title:  [Low-grade systemic inflammation and the development of metabolic diseases: from the molecular evidence to the clinical practice]. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Systemic inflammation is characterised by high circulating levels of inflammatory cytokines and increased macrophage infiltration in peripheral tissues. Most importantly, this inflammatory state does not involve damage or loss of function of the infiltrated tissue, which is a distinctive feature of the low-grade systemic inflammation. The term"meta-inflammation"has also been used to refer to the low-grade systemic inflammation due to its strong relationship with the development of cardio-metabolic diseases in obesity.OBJECTIVE: A review is presented on the recent clinical and experimental evidence concerning the role of adipose tissue inflammation as a key mediator of low-grade systemic inflammation. Furthermore, the main molecular mechanisms involved in the inflammatory polarization of macrophages with the ability to infiltrate both the adipose tissue and the vascular endothelium via activation of toll-like receptors by metabolic damage-associated molecular patterns, such as advanced glycation-end products and oxidized lipoproteins, is discussed. Finally, a review is made of the pathogenic mechanisms through which the low-grade systemic inflammation contributes to develop insulin resistance, dyslipidaemia, atherogenesis, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension in obese individuals.CONCLUSIONS: A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of low-grade systemic inflammation in promoting cardio-metabolic diseases is necessary, in order to further design novel anti-inflammatory therapies that take into consideration clinical data, as well as the circulating levels of cytokines, immune cells, and metabolic damage-associated molecular patterns in each patient.

Supplementation of resveratrol reduces blood glucose level in patients with type 2 diabetes. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Nutr Res. 2018 Jun ;54:40-51. Epub 2018 Apr 6. PMID: 29914666 Abstract Title:  Resveratrol supplementation decreases blood glucose without changing the circulating CD14CD16monocytes and inflammatory cytokines in patients with type 2 diabetes: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Abstract:  Chronic low-grade inflammation is the hallmark of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Although in vitro and animal studies have shown that resveratrol exerts anti-inflammatory effects, clinical trials addressing these effects in patients with T2D are limited. Therefore, in the present study, we hypothesized that supplementation of resveratrol might improve inflammatory markers in patients with T2D in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. A total of 45 T2D patients were supplemented with either of 800mg/d resveratrol or placebo capsules for 8 weeks. Percentage of CD14CD16monocytes, plasma levels of inflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor, interleukin [IL] 1, IL-6, and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1), the expression levels of genes involved in the inflammatory responses (toll-like receptor 2, toll-like receptor 4, and nuclear factor B), lipopolysaccharide-stimulated cytokine (tumor necrosis factor , IL-1, and IL-6) secretion from peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and metabolic and anthropometric parameters were assessed at both the baseline level and the end of the study. Compared with the placebo group, we could not detect any significant difference in the percentage of CD14CD16monocytes, lipopolysaccharide-induced cytokine secretion, plasma levels of inflammatory cytokines, and the expression of inflammatory genes in resveratrol group. Moreover, we did not find any significant change in the metabolic and anthropometric parameters except for a significant reduction in fasting blood glucose and blood pressure. In conclusion, 8-week supplementation of resveratrol reduces blood glucose level in patients with T2D without improving their inflammatory markers.

Bitcoin Price Watch: BTC/USD Turned Bearish? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin price failed to hold gains and broke a major support at $6,700 against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays discussed important contracting triangle was broken with support at $6,720 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently trading below $6,680 and 100 hourly simple moving average, which is a bearish sign.

Bitcoin price declined below the $6,700 support with negative signs against the US Dollar. BTC/USD could continue to move down and it may even retest the $6,550 level.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

There was another attempt to move past the $6,820 resistance by bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair was rejected from the $6,800 level and started a downside move. It declined and broke a few key supports, including $6,700. Moreover, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,511 low to $6,811 high.

More significantly, yesterdays discussed important contracting triangle was broken with support at $6,720 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The decline was such that the price settled below the $6,700 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the moment, the price is trading near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,511 low to $6,811 high. It may continue to move down if sellers succeed in pushing the price below the $6,600 support. The next key support on the downside sits around the $6,550 level.

Bitcoin Price Analysis BTC USD

Looking at the chart, the price has likely moved into a bearish zone below the $6,700 level. To initiate a fresh upside move, bitcoin buyers must push the price back above $6,700 and the 100 hourly SMA. If not, it could decline back towards the $6,550 level.

Economic Research Institute: Bitcoin is Less Volatile Than Other Cryptos, Sign of Maturity "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

American Institute For Economic Research (AIER), an independent 501 economic research institute that does not represent any fund or special interests, has reported that Bitcoin, the most dominant cryptocurrency in the global market, has significantly and consistently been less volatile than other digital assets since 2013.

In early 2018, researchers at AIER conducted a study comparing Bitcoin to major cryptocurrencies and digital assets including Litecoin, Ripple, Ethereum and Bitcoin. AIER found that Bitcoin has been consistently less volatile than the four major cryptocurrencies and discovered an interesting trend in the cryptocurrency market.

Bitcoins Volatility

The researchers emphasized that there exists a variety of ways economists measure volatility of a currency or an asset. In its study of cryptocurrencies, AIER researchers utilized a basic method of observing the daily price movement of Bitcoin and other digital assets in the global cryptocurrency market.

Economists and statisticians measure a variables volatility in many ways. We choose a relatively simple metric: the average daily percentage change in price. We average the absolute value of daily percentage returns for each cryptocurrency and year, AIER researchers explained.

After comparing the daily price movement of Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) since 2013, AIER formed a database of averaged daily price movement of every cryptocurrency over the past five years. Given that bitcoin Cash debuted in late 2017, the price movement of BCH since September of last year was included in the analysis.

Comparison of major cryptocurrencies and their volatility rates, chart provided by AIER

From 2013 until 2018, Bitcoin has managed to demonstrate the lowest volatility rate amongst the four major cryptocurrencies, which have also been less volatile in comparison to small market cap assets and tokens.

By our measure, in every year, Bitcoin is the least volatile of the five cryptocurrencies we study (we also looked at coefficients of variation, a more technical measure, which yielded similar results). Bitcoin reached its lowest aver...

PMID:  Medicines (Basel). 2018 Apr 21 ;5(2). Epub 2018 Apr 21. PMID: 29690511 Abstract Title:  Anti-Parasitic Activities ofandagainstand. Abstract:  Garlics and onions have been used for the treatment of diseases caused by parasites and microbes since ancient times. Trypanosomiasis and leishmaniasis are a concern in many areas of the world, especially in poor countries.andwere used to investigate the anti-parasitic effects of dichloromethane extracts of(garlic) and(onion) bulbs. As a confirmation of known antimicrobial activities, they were studied against a selection of G-negative, G-positive bacteria and two fungi. Chemical analyses were performed using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS).Chemical analyses confirmed the abundance of several sulfur secondary metabolites in garlic and one (zwiebelane) in the onion extract. Both extracts killed both types of parasites efficiently and inhibited thetrypanothione reductase irreversibly. In addition, garlic extract decreased the mitochondrial membrane potential in trypanosomes. Garlic killed the fungiandmore effectively than the positive control. The combinations of garlic and onion with common trypanocidal and leishmanicidal drugs resulted in a synergistic or additive effect in 50% of cases.The mechanism for biological activity of garlic and onion appears to be related to the amount and the profile of sulfur-containing compounds. It is most likely that vital substances inside the parasitic cell, like trypanothione reductase, are inhibited through disulfide bond formation between SH groups of vital redox compounds and sulfur-containing secondary metabolites.

Females Are Outperforming Males On Every Educational Level, And That Has Staggering Implications For The Future Of Our Society "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It is an uncomfortable truth that most educators simply do not want to talk about.  Females are dramatically outperforming males on every educational level, and many are wondering what this means for our future.  If men do not feel a strong sense of purpose and meaning, they can get into trouble really quickly.  As I write this article, the vast majority of those that abuse drugs are men, the vast majority of those that commit violent crimes are men, and the vast majority of those that we put into prison are men.  I began researching this article by looking into the fact that the labor participation rate for men has been declining for decades, but our problems run much deeper than that.  Today, so many men feel lost.  Millions of them dont have a sense of direction, millions of them dont have anything that really drives or motivates them, and millions of them are deeply depressed and greatly dissatisfied with life.

For a lot of them, it started very early.  As Dr. Michael Thompson told CBS News, all across America girls are outperforming boys at every educational level

Girls outperform boys in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college, and graduate school,says Dr. Michael Thompson, a school psychologist who writes about the academic problems of boys in his book, Raising Cain. He says that after decades of special attention, girls are soaring, while boys are stagnating.

Girls are being told, Go for it, you can do it. Go for it, you can do it. They are getting an immense amount of support, he says. Boys hear that the way to shine is athletically. And boys get a lot of mixed messages about what it means to be masculine and what it means to be a student. Does being a good student make you a real man? I dont think so It is not cool.

Perhaps one of the big reasons why young males are so drawn to sports is because it allows them to do the sorts of things the come naturally to males.  Sporting events allow young males to engage in battle, to hunt and to conquer.  Yes, it is a simulated environment, but sporting events really do bring out something primal in young boys.

We all have natural tendencies, and it appears that modern forms of schooling are doing a much better job of connecting with females.  In fact, one extremely large study found that girls all over the world are substantially outperforming boys.....

Ripple Price Analysis: XRP/USD Broke Channel Support "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price was not able to gain momentum and broke the $0.5400 support against the US dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted important ascending channel was breached with support at $0.5350 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is back in a bearish zone and it could continue to move down towards the $0.5150 level.

Ripple price fell sharply below key supports against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is likely to extend declines towards the $0.5150 and $0.5100 levels.

Ripple Price Resistance

Yesterday, Ripple price made an attempt to break the $0.5500 resistance against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair failed to move past $0.5500 and $0.5505, which resulted in a downside move. The price declined and broke a few important supports including $0.5400 to move into a bearish zone. It even traded below the $0.5350 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More importantly, yesterdays highlighted important ascending channel was breached with support at $0.5350 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.5094 low to $0.5611 high to accelerate declines. At the moment, the price is trading below the $0.5300 level and the 100 hourly SMA with bearish signs. It may continue to decline towards the $0.5150 level. An intermediate support is around the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.5094 low to $0.5611 high.

Ripple Price Analysis XRP USD

Looking at the chart, the price clearly moved into a bearish zone below $0.5300. If sellers remain in action, there is even a chance of ripple price retesting the $0.5100 zone. On the upside, the broke support at $0.5350 and 100 hourly SMA are likely to act as resistances.

Is this one daily habit increasing your risk of cancer? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


Bearing in mind that skin is the body's largest organ and absorbs substances readily, it's always a good rule of thumb to avoid exposing skin to anything we wouldn't ingest. And yet, a common routine is poisoning us on a daily basis - specifically, chlorinated showers and baths. Used in water treatment facilities to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi, chlorine is a potent disinfectant. But the darker side of water chlorination is rarely acknowledged, namely, that it causes serious harm to humans in ways which often remain unnoticed until major illness strikes.

Silent poison

A hot, steamy shower or bath is a great way to relax and unwind - or so we thought. In reality, we are exposing ourselves to an array of toxins with significant consequences. We would never suspect that we are bathing in an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified pesticide. According to the Global Healing Center post "Chlorine, Cancer, and Heart Disease":

"There is a lot of well-founded concern about chlorine. When chlorine is added to our water, it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination byproducts), or THMs. These chlorine byproducts trigger the production of free radicals in the body, causing cell damage, and are highly carcinogenic. The Environmental Defense Fund warns that, 'Although concentrations of these carcinogens (THMs) are low, it is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States.'"

A case in point is a study involving women from Hartford, Connecticut, which found that those with breast cancer have much higher levels of chlorine byproducts (by 50 - 60 percent) than women who are cancer-free.

Likewise, research in Spain discovered a higher incidence of bladder cancer in people exposed to chlorine through bathing, showering, ingestion and swimming in pools.

Toxins are not only easily absorbed through pores opened by hot water but also through inhalation of chloroform - a toxic byproduct of water chlorination. In the article "Is your daily shower making you sick?," Chris Kresser, L.Ac, observes:

"While our bodies can filter out much of the chlorine from our drinking water, the THMs and other disinfectant byprod...

New study provides blueprint to translate satellite data into conservation action "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A team of scientists and remote-sensing specialists have combined their years of experience monitoring changes in forest cover into a new publication meant to help fellow conservation practitioners better integrate forest-monitoring technology with policies to reduce illegal deforestation. The goal of the paper is to highlight the current unprecedented moment for near real-time deforestation monitoring, said lead author Matt Finer, senior research specialist at Amazon Conservation Association (ACA). The technology has evolved rapidly and now we need to link it to policy action. Rainforest on the Tambopata River, southeastern Peru. Image by Rhett A. Butler/Mongabay Technology for better data access, spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and sensing all needed to monitor forests and other land cover change across various spatial scales has evolved rapidly since the 1970s. For example, finer-scale imagery that is updated more frequently allows the remote detection of loss of tree cover earlier in the deforestation process. Freely available satellite data, from governments and private-sector miniature satellites, together with open-access software and increased computing power, such as by Google Earth Engine, enable even small nongovernmental groups to process large amounts of satellite image-based data. Finer and his co-authors have used their experience combining these and other technologies to propose a protocol to detect, monitor and communicate deforestation to policy makers locally and globally. We propose a model for turning near real-time deforestation monitoring into action across the tropics, said co-author Mikaela Weisse, research analyst at the World Resources Institute (WRI). Key steps include quickly and precisely

Scientists find surprising genetic differences between Brazils mangroves "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Hugging tropical coastlines with masses of long, tangled branches and roots that stick up out of the mud at low tide, mangrove forests all have a similar look at first glance. But dig a little deeper into their genes and surprising differences pop up. When researchers from institutions in Brazil did just that, they discovered that mangrove trees along the same coastline and of the same species were genetically distinct from each other. They think these differences likely arose because oceanic currents act as a barrier to mangrove tree seeds, effectively separating the two populations. In addition to genetic differences, some mangroves have physiological adaptations that make them better suited to their specific environments. The researchers say their results, published in the journal Ecology and Evolution earlier this year, highlight the importance of enacting conservation plans that give a higher priority to the preservation of genetic diversity an endeavor they say is becoming more and more critical for mangroves as they continue to disappear. Compared to other kinds of forests, mangroves dont cover a very large area, restricted to slim margins between land and sea in tropical areas of the world. But they provide crucial habitat for coastal wildlife, as well as important ecosystem services for human communities like flood control and maintenance of fishery stocks. Mangroves are also carbon storage powerhouses, pound-for-pound sequestering up to four times the carbon that rainforests can.

US/China trade war could boost Brazil soy export, Amazon deforestation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Munduruku fiercely oppose Brazilian plans to build mega-transportation infrastructure projects in their Amazon territory. Photo by Mauricio Torres. We are the ones who care for nature, says Alessandra Munduruku, a young Munduruku indigenous leader in the Brazilian Amazon. It isnt someone coming from on high whos going to teach us about caring for the forest. Alessandra first joined her communitys fight for survival when it was threatened with flooding by the So Luiz de Tapajs mega-dam project. Although plans for the dam are shelved for now, Alessandra says the Munduruku still face threats to the survival of their culture and community. One unexpected menace: President Donald Trumps bluster over tariffs and trade, which pushed up the price of Brazilian soybeans earlier this year. Since the Amazon region is a hub for soybean production, the price increase could lead to greater deforestation there. Now, with the U.S. already imposing $50 billion in tariffs on China; the Chinese retaliating equally; and Trump threatening another $200 billion in tariffs, an all-out trade war looms. The repercussions of such a war would threaten the Munduruku and the Amazon. What affect us directly are the railway, the canal, the ports, Alessandra says. There are three [ports] already, and they want to build 20 more. She is referring to the new transportation infrastructure and grain silos that dot the shore of the Tapajs River, an important Amazon River tributary, and the home territory of

Abdon Nababan: North Sumatran land mafia offered me $21m to win election and then hand over control of government "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In July last year, Abdon Nababan, one of Indonesias most prominent activists, announced his intention to run for governor in his home province of North Sumatra. During his decade-long tenure as head of AMAN, the countrys main advocacy group for indigenous rights, Abdon led the organization to a series of high-profile wins. These included a landmark court decision that eroded the states legal claim to indigenous peoples territories, which have widely been leased out to agribusiness and extractive companies by corrupt politicians. North Sumatra is no exception: Its last two governors were convicted of graft. North Sumatra, home to nearly 14 million people, is a bastion of the indigenous rights movement, and in many respects Abdon was an ideal candidate politically connected, charismatic, an experienced campaigner, social-media savvy, and a political outsider and reformer in the mold of current President Joko Widodo. The vote for governor will take place later this month, but Abdon didnt make it onto the ballot. Instead, the election will be contested by two tickets representing the more familiar faces of Indonesian politics. One of the candidates is a retired army general, while the other is running alongside a wealthy palm oil baron. The fact that Abdon couldnt stand reflects a phenomenon Mongabay and The Gecko Project have been investigating over the past 18 months: the role of money in elections, and its connection to destructive business interests that have established a stranglehold over politics in much of Indonesia, a young democracy still recovering from

Billionaire Ethereum Creator Bullish on Chinese Blockchain Projects Qtum and VeChain "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ethereum co-founder is looking to China for his next big investments, likes Qtum and Vechain and still believes strongly in Bitcoin.

Shopping for Bargains

Anthony Di Iorio who currently runs Decentral an Innovation Hub in Toronto which focuses on blockchain projects and is the creator of the Jaxx cryptocurrency wallet made his money as an early believer in digital currencies. After having amassed a fortune by investing in Bitcoin when it was selling for under $8 per coin and then rolling that profit into co-founding Ethereum Di Iorio is still looking for bargains in the crypto world.

The biggest stake for me is in Qtum and VeChain right now, the two Chinese projects, theres much more opportunity in newer ones if you can identify them.  Di Iorio said Thursday in an interview from Toronto.

Though Di Iorio got into the crypto investing craze when its potential was still generally unrecognized by the majority, both of his picks from China are already well established. Qtum is a project that promises the reliability of Bitcoins blockchain while offering the flexibility of the Ethereum networks smart contracts. Though their tech has been praised in the industry, company founder Patrick Dai has conceded in the past that their social media presence and marketing hasnt been what it should. It is currently ranked as the 20th biggest digital coin with a market value of $914 million according to Bloomberg.

 

Di Iorios other choice pick, Vechain, focuses on financial services and supply chain management. Its token recently enjoyed a price boost when it was listed on South Koreas biggest cryptocurrency exchange Bithump and is now the 17th largest coin with a $1.7 billion market value.

WA Health Minister, Roger Cook, Condones the Suppression of Scientific Debate on Vaccination "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Please read the following information and make WA Health Minister, Roger Cook, accountable for the false information he is providing about vaccines to the public. Politicians are liable for participating in legislative decisions that can harm human health. This censorship of the risks of vaccines as anti-vaccination material is resulting in an escalation of chronic illness in the population that is preventable.
Most of you will be aware that a billboard was put up in the Perth CBD (corner of William and Brisbane St) that asks the public Do you know what is in a vaccine. This information is essential knowledge for assessing the risks of this medical procedure. Just as you would check the ingredients of your food only vaccines are injected into the human body and this means the chemicals can access every organ of the body.
This information is in the public interest yet the WA government and AMA are calling this anti-vaccination material and complaining that the question poses a public health risk.
Why is the Australian Medical Association making this unscientific claim? The risks of any environmental toxin need to be addressed within the individual genetic make-up of each person and there are many toxins in vaccines.  Each toxin in the vaccine, for example, aluminium and antibiotics, will have a different reaction in every person because of their genetics and this reaction can be delayed.
Does Roger Cook know that there are antibiotics in every vaccine and that antibiotics are linked to causing many chronic illnesses including autism?
Why has the AMA also ignored the fundamental medical principle that:
A medical treatment should be individualised particularly when injecting substances into the human body that carry the potential for disease, disablement and death.

Another Day Another Dump, $10 Billion Shaved off Crypto Markets Again "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

FOMO Moments

Markets are falling, altcoins getting hit hardest are Ontology, Bytecoin and 0x.

Just when signs of a recovery were looking positive crypto markets have dumped again dropping another $10 billion in a matter of hours. Buying pressure could not be sustained and the bears once again dominate crypto land. Total market cap did not reach $300 billion and has fallen back as a sea of red envelops the charts.

Bitcoin never got close to $7k and has shed 1.8% over the past day declining to an ominous $6,666 at the time of writing. Ethereum, after a couple of days of good gains, has fallen harder with 4.4% losses on the day back to around $515. Predictably altcoins have suffered worse with almost the entire top 50 losing ground. Only BAT down in 45th place is actually showing gains this morning.

According to Coinmarketcap Basic Attention Token is up over 6.6% on the day trading at around $0.29. The gains are small but significant as all other altcoins are dropping once again. Over the past week BAT has made an impressive 40% gain from around $0.21 this time last Friday. The monthly picture is not so pretty as the token has lost 12.5% from $0.34 this time last month. Against Bitcoin BAT is up 8.6% on the day to 4440 satoshis and 36% on the week from 3275 satoshis this time last week.

BAT is an Ethereum based digital advertising platform that aims to solve the problem of the intrusive advertising plague smothering the internet from search and social media monopolies. It has recently launched a reward based ad platform with open-source privacy-focused web browser Brave.

Worlds Biggest VC Firms are Creating Cryptocurrency Funds, Market Enthusiastic "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Historically venture capitalists do not own cryptocurrencies. They hold equity and invest in privately and publicly held companies but, with the potential of cryptocurrency and blockchain based technology companies to create unprecedented returns VC firms are exploring ways to restructure legally and financially to tap into that future revenue stream.

VC Firms Creating New Strategies for Crypto

Recode recently examined four different strategies some of the top venture capital firms have taken to re-orientate the way they do business.

Andreesen Horowitz, cofounded by Marc Andreesen creator of the first web browser (Netscape Navigator) and longtime Bitcoin enthusiast, for instance, has created a separate pool of money raised specifically for investment in cryptocurrency projects. This allows Horowitz to put together a group of investors whose main interest is in the nascent technology. It also allows the firm to sidestep laws that limit VC firms from having more than 20% of their investments in assets considered liquid securities such as cryptocurrencies.

Finding a middle ground between launching a separate fund such as Horowitz has and maintaining the traditional status quo allows LightSpeed Venture Partners to earmark a percentage from a general fund specifically for investment in crypto projects. This sends a message to the crypto world that they are dedicated to the space and attracts investors whose main interest is in crypto projects, while soothing partners still skeptical about the volatile industry.

The famous New York Venture Capital firm Union Square Ventures leads a handful of smaller funds putting money into crypto-specific funds set up by other firms. With this strategy, the firm doesnt have to create a separate unit for crypto but, still gains plenty of exposure to the space without the time and resource commitment of owning any startups. It also allows them to invest simultaneously in multiple funds.

Fred Wilson from USV has advised investors previously about having at least some position in crypto saying:

If I were a trader, a stock trader or hedge fund person, I might think of having 5% of my assets in something like this; it...

Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH/USD Broke Key Support "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price failed to move above the $545 barrier and declined against the US Dollar.
  • This weeks highlighted key bullish trend line was broken with support at $518 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is now well below $530 and the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is a bearish sign.

Ethereum price came under renewed selling pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is now trading below $530 with bearish signs.

Ethereum Price Resistance

Recently, we saw a rejection around the $545-548 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price made another attempt to surpass the $545 resistance, but buyers failed to gain traction. As a result, there was a bearish reaction and the price moved down below the $540 and $530 levels. There was a sharp decline and the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $489 low to $548 high.

During the decline, this weeks highlighted key bullish trend line was broken with support at $518 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair settled below the $530 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the moment, the price is consolidating around the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $489 low to $548 high. If the price continues to move down, it could break the $508-510 area and declined towards $500. It must stay above the $500 support zone, else there is a risk of more declines in the near term.

Ethereum Price Analysis ETH USD

Looking at the chart, the recent decline is a sign of rejection from the $545 level. Therefore, there are chances of more losses towards the $500 level. On the upside, resistances are seen near the $524 and $530 levels, followed by the all-important $545.

Your How-To Guide for Growing Astragalus "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus), a member of the pea family, is an adaptogenic herb with a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine as an immune strengthening tonic, where it goes by the name of Huang Qi and Hwanqqi. Another English name for this shrub is milkvetch.

Adaptogenic herbs help your body adapt to physical, emotional or mental stress. The immune boosting, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of astragalus also lowers your risk for infections and other diseases. The most important part of the plant is its root, which has a distinct yellow color. For medical use, the root is made into powder, herbal decoctions, tea, capsules and ointments. The raw root can also be used in cooking.

Astragalus oil, which you can make yourself, also has both therapeutic and cosmetic uses. Taken internally, astragalus oil helps boost your immune response by promoting the production of antibodies. It also helps maintain your digestive health and can help alleviate ulcers by promoting the healthy balance of gastric juices and gastric acid in your stomach.

As most adaptogens, astragalus has a rather long list of potential uses. Products containing astragalus have been shown useful in the treatment of chronic weakness and fatigue, bloating, heart failure, night sweats, nephritis, urinary tract infections, allergies, and cold and flu prevention. To take full advantage of this medicinal plant, why not consider growing some in your backyard?1,2,3

Astragalus Growing and Harvesting Guide

Astragalus is a perennial plant with hairy stems that can grow up to 4 feet tall, producing small yellow flowers that eventually turn into egg-shaped beans. Flowering season runs from midsummer through late fall. It grows well in zones 6 through 11. Seeds will germinate in three to 10 days following a three-week-long cold period. However, seed germination rate tends to be low, and should you store seeds, be sure to use them within two years. After that, they may no longer germinate at all.

Once your seeds have been cold stratified, rub the seed on fine sandpaper to rough up the outer shell. Just dont rub too....

Chia Is Easy to Grow "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

If you were alive in the 1970s and 80s, you undoubtedly remember the "chia pet" craze. Cultivating one of these characters was easily accomplished by applying moistened chia seeds to a grooved terra cotta figurine and watering them daily until they sprouted. Because chia seeds become gel-like when wet, they adhered to the pottery in such a way as to create tuffs of green sprouts that mimicked fur, hair and beards.

While the market for those terra cotta creations has waned, the interest in chia seeds and chia sprouts has experienced explosive growth. Part of the reason is chia's nutritional profile. Chia seeds are high in antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fats and other beneficial nutrients. If you've never considered growing chia, perhaps you may reconsider after learning more about this superb superfood.

What Is Chia?

Chia seeds are harvested from the plant Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant that is a member of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. Chia is native to central and southern Mexico and parts of Central America. Due to its popularity, it is now grown commercially in several countries around the world, including Argentina, Australia, Bolivia and the U.S.1

Chia's tiny oval seeds boast a shiny, mottled seed coat that can be black, brown, gray or white. The plant itself is an annual herb characterized by dark-green leaves that are wrinkled and deeply lobed. When mature, numerous purple and white, somewhat self-pollinating flowers, emerge from a central spike.

The History of Chia

According to Britannica.com, chia was:2

  • Widely used in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica for medicinal and religious purposes, as well as a major food source for indigenous peoples
  • Roasted in seed form and ground into flour by the Aztecs, who also ate chia seeds whole
  • Overtaken by barley and wheat when Spanish conquerors introduced those and other grains to the "new world"

Chia's production as a food crop dropped off until the late 20th century. Its use, some assert, was somewhat revived due to the popularity of the chia pet in the late 1970s and '80s. At that time, chia began to make a comeback as an alternative crop and health food. Today, chia is well-regarded for its nutritiona...

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Watch: How Low Can It Go? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price looks ready to resume the downtrend as the descending trend line keeps holding.
  • Bulls seem to be having trouble sustaining the upside wedge breakout and might give in to bearish pressure.
  • Applying the Fibonacci extension tool shows the next potential downside targets.

Bitcoin price might be ready to resume its selloff as the $6,800 level is proving to be tough resistance.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is safely below the longer-term 200 SMA to suggest that the path of least resistance is to the downside. This means that the selloff is more likely to resume than to reverse.

The 100 SMA also lines up with the trend line to add to its strength as a ceiling, and a move higher could still encounter a roadblock at the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point.

RSI continues to head south so bitcoin price might follow suit while sellers have the upper hand. Stochastic is also moving lower without even hitting overbought levels, signaling that bears are eager to return.

BTC/USD Chart from TradingView

A continuation of the drop could lead to a move to the 38.2% extension at $6,300 initially then to the swing low near the 50% extension at $6,100. Stronger selling pressure could spur a break of the $6,000 handle onto the 61.8% extension at $5,879 or the 78.6% extension at $5,585. The full extension is near the $5,200 level.

Sentiment in the industry has tossed and turned for the most part of the week, starting off with the BitLicense approval for Square then the Bithumb hack midweek. The Bank of International Settlements also had some negative commentary on cryptocurrencies, which also contributed to investor anxiety.

Apart from that, dips in risk appetite also led to some profit-taking off key technical levels, which explains why the upside barriers are holding. Bitcoin price w...

In the old days, it was enough for an entrepreneur to be the owner of a corner store, plying their trade: butcher, baker, candlestick maker. If they brought competence to their trade, and sometimes a bit of innovation as required, they would have a good life. There was no pressure to grow, to branch out, to a franchise, to merge, to acquire. Sure there were rich industrialists at that time in history, but the ability to amass power through massive corporate growth was still in its infancy.

Somehow, over time, we have stood by and watched as the entire landscape has changed, and have been persuaded by promises of progress, efficiency, and prosperity to allow monstrous corporations to completely take over, and control not only the flow of goods and services into our lives, but more insidiously, our very perception of reality.


The Fate of Successful Startups

Of course, when a new company is suddenly born out of an original idea, they are not yet part of this corporatocracy. In their startup phase companies like Apple, Facebook, and Google put all of their focus on their particular trade. Apple was driven to create a better operating system for computers. Facebook was simply about pictorially connecting people online; Google concerned itself with the search engine algorithm that would connect people efficiently to the online information that they wanted. Their simple, even goofy names suggest a casual irreverence for authority and the established order. Now they have become it.

The National Center is the only Native organizations toe exhibit at the 2018 SelectUSA Investment Summit

WASHINGTON The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (the National Center) is exhibiting at the 2018 SelectUSA Investment Summit this week, which is occurring just outside of the nations capital in National Harbor, Maryland. The National Center is the only Native American organization that has a booth at the Summit; the Citizen Potawatomi Nation in Oklahoma is the only tribe there. The National Center is promoting infrastructure investment opportunities in Indian Country, as well as the incentives for economic development on tribal lands, including tax exemptions and credits, as well as economic opportunity zones.

The Summit provides a place for global business investors to explore investment opportunities from every corner of the United States, learn about the latest investment policies and trends from high-profile business and government leaders, to make business deals happen. Participants of the previous four Investment Summits have announced nearly $93 billion in greenfield foreign direct investment (FDI) into the United States since late 2013. SelectUSA is a U.S. government-wide program led by the Department of Commerce, whose mission is to facilitate job-creating investment in the U.S. and raise awareness of the critical role that FDI plays in the American economy.

The investment opportunity in Indian Country is tremendous, and the SelectUSA Investment Summit is the perfect venue to showcase all that we have to offer to an international business that wants to invest in the U.S., said Chris James, President and CEO of the National Center. Promoting international trade with and investment in Indian Country has long been a priority for the National Center and we hope to continue our efforts through events like the Investment Summit. We thank SelectUSA for hosting the Summit and its efforts to ensure that investment flows to all parts of the country, including reservations and tribally and Native-owned businesses.

Idaho American Indian Student Fee Approved for Reduced Tuition Costs at ISU "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Gaylen Edmo, Ladd Edmo and Sidney Fellows.

Published June 22, 2018

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO   The Shoshone-Bannock Tribes (Tribes) are pleased to announce that on June 21, 2018 in Idaho Falls, the Idaho State Board of Education (ISBE) approved a pilot project for Idaho State University (ISU) that would provide a new fee in lieu of tuition for all enrolled members of Idahos five tribes who are eligible to attend ISU. Reduction of college tuition at ISU for Shoshone-Bannock Tribal students has been a long-time goal of the Tribes because ISU is located within lands ceded by the Tribes in 1888 for the Pocatello town site.

Vice Chairman Ladd Edmo and two tribal member college students, Ms. Sidney Fellows and Mr. Galen Edmo, all testified in support of reducing costs for attending college in Idaho and making college more affordable to tribal members. Vice Chairman Edmo stated, We have almost 6,000 Tribal members and we have the largest number of enrolled tribal members who attend Idaho colleges and universities. If approved, this proposal would work to correct the education disparities within the State of Idaho and specifically for the Tribal members of my Tribe.

Galen further added, I realize a lot of work has gone into this proposal, and I hope that it all works out for the best. Education is a powerful thing. I am proud that our people are fighting to give the Indian community better access to our education system.

Members of Idahos five federally recognized American Indian Tribes would pay a $60 per credit fee, in lieu of current tuition, for technical, academic undergraduate and graduate programs, effective this fall 2018 academic year. All special course fees and institutional local fees such as technology, activity fee, facilities, online, and professional fees remain the responsibility of the student.

Enrolled tribal members of federally recognized tribes have a unique political status that is distinctive from underrepresented populations. Education is considered the equalizer to economic sufficiency and society mobility; therefore, it is of utmost importance for the Tribes to have trained professionals who are vested in their civic responsibilities, and will contribute to the tribal, local, regional, and state communities.

Vice Chairman Edmo emphasized We recognize the importance of hi.........

Published June 22, 2018

TAHLEQUAH Cyclists from the 2018 Remember the Removal Bike Ride arrived in Tahlequah Thursday, finishing their three-week trek that retraced the northern route of the Trail of Tears.

The ride started on June 3 in New Echota, Georgia, the former capital of the Cherokee Nation prior to forced removal to present-day Oklahoma. Cyclists from the Cherokee Nation and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians rode nearly 1,000 miles through portions of seven states.

Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker congratulates the 2018 Remember the Removal Bike Ride participants during a special return ceremony at the Cherokee National Peace Pavilion.

The Cherokee Nation held a return ceremony at the tribes new Cherokee National Peace Pavilion in downtown Tahlequah on Thursday, where tribal leaders, friends and family gathered to greet the returning cyclists.

These Cherokee men and women have honored our ancestors by riding hundreds and hundreds of miles from New Echota, Georgia, to the Cherokee Nation capital in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, said Principal Chief Bill John Baker. Along the way they have formed new bonds with fellow Cherokees, gained a deeper understanding of what their ancestors endured, and faced their own personal adversities only to defeat them, because thats what Cherokees do. I am so proud of the 2018 Remember the Removal cyclists and what they have accomplished.

Cannabis as Medicine: How CBD Benefits the Brain and Nervous System "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an active cannabinoid found in cannabis which, unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), does not produce a psychoactive effect in the brain. For this reason, CBD has become a primary focus of medicinal cannabis studies.

CBD has been found to have a wide range of benefits, including lowering blood sugar levels, promoting bone growth, and importantly, protecting the human brain and nervous system from degeneration.

How CBD Protects the Nervous System

The nervous system is comprised of two main parts: the peripheral nervous system, which includes the nerves and ganglia on the outside of the brain and spinal cord, and the central nervous system, which includes the brain, cranial nerves, spiral cord, etc. CBD prevents the degeneration of the nervous system in several ways.

When Governments Take Children Hostage by J. B. Gerald "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The U.N. High Commissioner of Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, has called for the Trump administration to immediately stop separating children from their parents and families on entering the U.S. when the legality of their entry is questioned. "The thought that any state would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable. I call on the United States to immediately end the practice of forcible separation of these children." He references the American Academy of Pediatrics which believes the practice causes "irreparable harm". This new Trump policy of separating children from their parents is a policy familiar to North American Indigenous peoples, as well as the indentured servants and African and Indian slaves of America's history. It is legal only because the government says it is. If found illegal as a crime against U.S. domestic laws or human rights under international laws, cooperating with it could eventually result in charges against those who effect these actions which are to common sense, indecent. There are a number of international laws rising from signed treaties which help reveal how humanity traditionally feels about the Trump administration's lack of understanding and concern for children. The U.S. remains the only country in the world which has not ratified the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child. However the U.S. at least has signed it and Article 9, 1 of the Convention begins: "States Parties shall ensure that a child shall not be separated from his or her parents against their will," with the exception applying to the best interests of the child. Article 11, 1 specifies "States Parties shall take measures to combat the illicit transfer and non-return of children abroad," which might empower any of the world states to bring legal action against the Trump administration at International Criminal Court. While the U.S. does not subscribe to the International Criminal Court, that doesn't necessarily limit the Court's jurisdiction. The 1967 Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees was signed by the United States. Under the Protocol the U.S. is required to cooperate with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and affirm and continue the articles of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees...
