Quadriga: are the director's cryptocoins really gone?

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 17 hours ago
A sad and unusual story recently took place in the Canadian world of cryptocurrencies. The young and only director of the top Canadian cryptoexchange, QuadrigaCX, Mr Gerald Cotten, has been a Crohn's disease sufferer (incidentally, there are preliminary hints of correlations with the Candida overgrowth but I am not eager about hearing the Crohn diagnosis – it's better to behave as if one is just mostly healthy). He went to India, a rather dangerous place for medical emergencies, and due to some Crohn's disease complications, he died on December 9th. Now, more than a month later, i... more »

Brownie Points in the Worker's Paradise

I have joked in the past on how people need to do odd and disgusting things to receive points from progressives. The points have no cash value, of course, but it makes you more of a prog.

*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, * [image: Flickr / Official U.S. Navy Page] Or not? In 2009, it became clear that China had developed a mobile medium-range ballistic missile called the DF-21D designed to sink ships over 900 miles away. This then-nascent technical achievement gave rise to a still-ongoing debate over the survivability of the U.S.’s nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, as the DF-21D outranged the strike planes serving on carrier decks. This further compelled the U.S. Navy to introduce anti-ballistic missile capability to its destroyers and cruisers in the form of the ... more »

Once again we are learning about something that has never been properly disclosed and it is a lot about Antarctica again. Understand though that at this instance in history, Britain was still operating at the military level demanded of the original British empire.

The New Language of Climate Change

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
The greatest disservice ever done to climate science was the blind assertion that man made CO2 production had anything to do with it. There is no end of climate based issues available to manage and CO2 was never one of them. It really was a tax scheme by globalists in particular. A real problem is the reforestation of the whole Sahara back to Bronze Age verdancy. Or dealing with Georgia's decades long drought and the real risk of a decadal drought in the great plains as has happened before.

The Power of Mises's book - The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality'

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 20 hours ago
A short review essay here that needs a read by every high school student. A minimum amount of thought soon teaches that all human actuality is profit driven even if that profit happens to be to void one's bowels. In fact most of that profit is never actually monetized and should not be. Monetization sets the stage for capitalism as actual money allows efficient accumulation of stored human potential effort. We went a long way before figuring all that out. Then we created the magic of fiat currency which allowed money to be created independent of any finite resource. Inasmuch... more »

China's Olive Branch to Save the World from AI Weapons

Lyle J. Goldstein at Test Feed Using Fields - 23 hours ago
*Lyle J. Goldstein* *Security, Asia* Is China open to arms control over AI weapons development? The United States should find out. The fundamental problem with great-power competition as a strategy is that it offers little in the way of concrete, realizable objectives. If China is successfully marketing big, yellow bananas in Bhutan, then Uncle Sam must endeavor to get some bigger, more yellow bananas up into the Himalayan kingdom pronto. The seeming prize of this contest would be a great declaration by the King of Bhutan and splashed across the pages of Thimphu’s most influenti... more »

“This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be. Every time you don't throw yourself down the stairs, that's a choice. Every time you don't crash your car, you re-enlist. If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character...Would you slow down? Or speed up?" - Chuck Palahniuk

Gov. Northam, Hillary Clinton, Sen. Byrd, Keith Ellison and Louis Farrakhan—a melting pot of bigotry and racism

Norma at Collecting My Thoughts - 1 day ago
After the fiasco the MSM made about Catholic teens wearing MAGA hats (they think that's like a KKK hood) I can see why they kept quiet about the VA governor's yearbook photo showing him in either blackface or a KKK outfit. I mean, after Kavanaugh, isn’t everyone’s college yearbook fair game? I don’t like to be defending Dr. Gov. Northam, who advocates letting a born alive abortion victim die, but I don't care what he did in 1984--he was a college kid. Today he knows better--but abortion is far, far worse and disproportionately affects blacks. In 2010 our Secretary of State, form... more »

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.” - Mother Teresa
