Tiny Solar Heater "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

I have a 119 Sq Ft house located at 7500 feet in the Rocky Mountains. The house is inhabited sporadically 1-2 weeks a month. I am looking to add a little heat to:
-Take the chill off when I am not there
-Add capabilities for charging devices and a night light down the road

I wanted to bounce this idea off and hopefully get some feedback!

Take 1 or 2 solar panels, ~200-400 watts @12v $100-200 and mount it on the roof.

Watch Prince Play Jazz Piano & Coach His Band Through George Gershwins Summertime in a Candid, Behind-the-Scenes Moment (1990) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A rock enigma wrapped around an R&B quandary, wearing platform shoes and purple velour. The cheekbones of an angel, dances moves and lyrics from an infernally sexy place, and more musical talent than it seems possible for a single person to possess in one lifetime. These are some of the ways we remember Prince Rogers Nelson.

We do not typically remember him as a jazz pianist. But his facility with jazz earned him the admiration of Miles Davis, who made several efforts to collaborate with the extremely busy pop star. (They performed together only once, it seems, on New Years Eve, 1987 at Paisley Park.) Princes style, stage show, songwriting, and arranging drew from jazz of all kindsfrom zoot suit-era big band to the frenetic movement of hard bop to the classically-inflected show tunes of George Gershwin. Just above see him casually own Gershwin's "Summertime" during a 1990 soundcheck in Osaka, Japan.




For the first minute, its a Prince showcase, but once he coaches the band through the changes, he lets them take it, settling back while the guitarist rides out a solo. The candid moment does much more than demonstrate his chops on the piano and appreciation for Gershwin. It offers yet another contrast to the popular image of Prince as a charismatic, self-sufficient solo artist who just happened to work with a regular crew of stellar musicians and not-so-stellar actresses.

It's true Prince played most or all of the instruments on many of his albums, wrote nearly all his own songs, directed or produced nearly every aspect of his music, career, and persona.... As solo artists go, no one comes close to defining full creative control. The Purple One ruled over a musical empire; most of the time, it seems, he got what he wanted, even if he sometimes had to fight like hell for it. We might expect such an artist to be a petty tyrant, hogging the spotlight and throwing his weight aro...

Knstler fr das Ms Artville Festival 2018 gesucht (Open Call) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Das Ms Artville Festival gehrt mittlerweile Fest zum Hamburger Kunstsommer dazu. Einmal im Jahr verwandelt das Outdoor-Festival einen Teil des Hafens in eine groe Interventionsflche und knstlerische Spielwiese fr etablierte und Nachwuchstalente aus dem Bereich bildender Kunst, Performance und Interventionskunst. Fr das diesjhrige Ms Artville 2018 werden ab sofort mit einem internationalen Open Call wieder Knstler gesucht, die im Sommer Teil des Festivals werden wollen. Anders als in den Vorjahren, gibt es diesmal kein spezifisches Oberthema, sondern das Festival macht die Kunst und den Dialog zwischen Kunst, Knstlern und Besuchern zum eigentlichen Thema. Bereits seit ber zehn Jahren ist das MS ARTVILLE Gelnde eine Insel urbaner Knste und Kreativoase inmitten des Hamburger Hafens. Umgeben von Wasser und den kontinuierlich wachsenden Flchen der Hafen- und Logistikwirtschaft, hat sich auf dem Festivalgelnde ber den Zeitraum von mehr als einer Dekade ein kulturelles Biotop entwickelt.

Students With Mental Health Conditions Find Support at BU "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From STAT: For the past three years, Boston University has offered one of the few programs in the nation dedicated to teaching students who have had to leave college due to mental health challenges the coping skills necessary to get back into school or work.

Taking time off from college for mental health problems is a loss. Its a loss of independence, of routine, of friends, of a place, a purpose, and a clear-cut goal.

NITEO fills that gap. It gives the students a peer group and a place to go three days a week. It gives them assignments, accountability, and a personal coach to cheer them on. It gives them a path forward.

ShapeShift Enables NEO Support for Cryptocurrency Enthusiasts "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Its always good to see existing cryptocurrency services support new currencies. In the case of ShapeShift, they have been adding quite a few coins throughout 2017. It seems this trend will carry over into 2018, as the first new currency has been added already. NEO, one of the top 15 cryptocurrencies, is now available for trading on this platform.

Supporting different currencies is the bread and butter of ShapeShift. This service allows users to convert between different currencies without creating an account. Although it cant be used for major transactions in one go, it has a certain appeal. Especially for users who dont want to rely on regular exchanges, such a platform can make a big difference. After all, it is convenient, has low fees, and transactions are completed very quickly. Adding NEO to the list of supported currencies makes a lot of sense.

NEO Trading is Live on ShapeShift

As a result of this move, NEO can now be traded against all other supported currencies. This will give the popular altcoin a lot of new trading markets waiting to be explored in the future. Right now, trading NEO is somewhat limited to Bitcoin and Ethereum across most platforms. With ShapeShift, about 30 different combinations are added to this list as we speak. It is always good to have more options at ones disposal, to say the very least.

As is always the case, it remains to be seen if this will generate more interest in NEO. While it is a popular altcoin, its not even close to rivaling Ethereum. That seems a bit odd, considering this altcoin refers to itself as the Ethereum of China. It will be interesting to see how the future plays out for this currency. Its value has gone up steadily throughout 2017 and that trend is still in place during the first week of the new year.

Laid Off Bethesda Employee Cleans 70 Cheese Wheels Out of Desk "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

ROCKVILLE, Md. After being fired, Bethesda animator Jeff Callahan was seen packing a confusingly extensive assortment of useless objects into a bankers box as he promptly left the building.

This is going to be really hard on my family, said the overweight 35-year-old artist, cramming cheese wheel after cheese wheel into the box. How am I going to tell my wife? We just signed a lease on a new car.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

Callahan slid open another desk drawer, which contained 35 pool balls, a handful of gems, dragon bones, a bee in a jar, and a 10mm pistol, wondering, Why did I bring all this stuff to work? What a goddamned nightmare.

Other employees offered to help Callahan carry his burdens, but he refused, only relenting when he had already loaded 300lbs onto his person and was moving at such a slow shuffle security became impatient.

As he continued to dole out his increasingly unwieldy belongings, he stated, Its almost Christmas. My son Trey wanted a new bike. Im gonna have to sell these stacks of illegible burned books if Im gonna make that happen. The possibility has left me considering suicide.

Security kept a close eye on Callahan during his exit. Senior Guard Anthony Terrell explained, We have to make sure he doesnt look like hes saving. They save right before they snap and kill everybody. Callahan left peacefully, however, making a scene only when dragon-shout noises started blaring from his smart watch.

In lieu of fast travel, Callahan drove slowly home in silence, stopping only to pull over to the side of the road and cry in his car. At press time, he was observed at a local tavern drinking 14 bottles of ale in the span of 3 seconds.

Cryptopay Makes Spending Bitcoin Easier with Its New Android App "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Cryptocurrencies have become the talk of the town in the recent months. The growing interest in the digital currencies is interlinked with the rising prices of Bitcoin and other altcoins. While the number of people buying cryptocurrencies continues to grow, its use is currently limited as an investment asset and not an instrument of value exchange on a regular basis the actual use case for which it was created in the first place. The main reason for that is the lack of options for people to spend the digital currencies they possess.

Cryptopay is a cryptocurrency platform which is designed to make spending and managing Bitcoin easier for its users. While the platform has been offering a range of products for some time now, it has recently added a brand-new Android application to its arsenal. Some of Cryptopays product offering includes Bitcoin Wallet, Prepaid Bitcoin Cards, Exchange, Gift Cards and soon to be launched Bitcoin Loans. And so far, users could access it on the platforms webpage.

Now, users dont have to rely on their computers or the tiny window on their mobile phone browser to access and manage the services offered by the platform. With a full-fledged application available on all Android powered devices, a majority of the cryptocurrency using population around the world can easily open the application and load their Cryptopay prepaid debit cards from anywhere to continue spending Bitcoin at regular PoS terminals or online payment gateways without any hassle.

Users can also use the app like any other Bitcoin wallet available on Google Play store to send Bitcoin in three simple steps.

  • Scan the QR Code with the phone camera
  • Choose the amount to be transferred
  • Tap and confirm the payment

The Cryptopay Android app follows the earlier launch of its Apple iOS counterpart. It also allows users to order a Bitcoin fueled prepaid physical or virtual card from within the application. The virtual cards are the best bet for online shopping and managing recurring payments whereas the physical card can be used to make withdrawals from ATMs or for paying at Point of Sale terminals where major credit and debit cards are accepted.

The Cryptopay mobile app comes with additional security features like passcode for accessing the application, which is different from the account password. It prevents others from accessing the application, thus safeguarding the funds.

Interview with an Israeli Generals Son "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Miko Peled: Israel is faced with two options: Continue to exist as a Jewish state while controlling the Palestinians through military force and racist laws, or undertake a deep transformation into a real democracy where Israelis and Palestinians live as equals in a shared state, their shared homeland. For Israelis and Palestinians alike, the latter path promises a bright future.

by Jonas E. Alexis and Miko Peled

[ Editors Note: Dear readers, This is a fabulous start of the year interview by Jonas. His work has been superlative in that too many writers take the commentary only route, and they are now a dime a dozen.

The real work comes in showing what your commentary is based upon. That is how you establish your street cred in internet world. With not professional journalism, Jonas just blew by that by getting out there and doing the work.

And frankly his writing now is better, more solid than the majority of mainstream journalists, as he does not shy away from the red line areas, and VT readers all know what those are Jim W. Dean ]

Miko Peled is an Israeli-American activist and author of the best-selling book The Generals Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine (Charlottesville, VA: Just World Books, 2016). He grew up in a Zionist family. His father fought in the 1948 war and served as a general in the war of 1967. Peled believes that Israel has been on a mission to destroy the Palestinian people for over six decades. Peled wrote in the LA Times in 2012:

Israel is faced with two options: Continue to exist as a Jewish state while controlling the Palestinians through military force and racist laws, or undertake a deep transformation into a real democracy where Israelis and Palestinians live as equals in a shared state, their shared homeland.

Money markets panic as value of limited edition Orange Kit Kat plunges "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Clustering the Top 1%: Asset Analysis in R "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Cluster Dendrogram of Affluent US Households

The recent tax reform bill passed in the US has raised a lot of questions about wealth distribution in the country. While theres been a lot of focus on how the tax plan will impact income, theres been less attention focused on how this plan impacts the assets of wealthy households.

The goal of this post is to show how the R programming language can be used to data mine publicly available sources to better understand the net worth of affluent households in the US. Using data from the 2016 Federal Reserve Survey of Consumer Finances, we investigate the following questions:

  • How rich are the top 1% and top 0.1% of households?
  • Are there different types of millionaires in the US?
  • How do asset allocations differ across different net worth segments?

To answer these questions, we present descriptive statistics of this survey data and perform cluster analysis on affluent households, which we identify as households with a net worth of more than $1,000,000 USD.

Based on the survey data, our analysis shows that the net worth of the top 1% of households in the US is $10.4M and the net worth of the top 0.1% of households is $43.2M. This post presents an analysis of the different asset compositions of millionaires, and shows how asset allocations differ between the top 10%, 1%, and 0.1% of households in the US. The R source code used to produce all results and figures presented in this post is available as a Jupyter Notebook.

Setting Up the Environment
To perform cluster analysis on the affluent households in the US, we use several packages available from the CRAN library for R. For exploratory data analysis, we like to use the R kernel for the Jupyter notebook, since it enables data scientists to easily store notebooks on GitHub and share findings with other teams.

Setting up this environment is outside the scope of this post, but Ive previously detailed our motivation for this setup in this post, and additional details for setting up Jupyter with R support are available here.

Were now ready to start digging into the survey data to better understand the assets of affluent househ...

Hear Glenn Gould Channel Marshall McLuhan and Create an Experimental Radio Documentary Analyzing the Pop Music of Petula Clark (1967) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Glenn Gould, that intellectually intense, aesthetically austere interpreter of Johann Sebastian Bach, had little time for pop music. He had especially little time for the Beatles: "Theirs is a happy, cocky, belligerently resourceless brand of harmonic primitivism," he wrote in High Fidelity in 1967, when the Fab Four had reached the top of the zeitgeist. "The indulgent amateurishness of the musical material, though closely rivaled by the indifference of the performing style, is actually surpassed only by the ineptitude of the studio production method," he declares, likening "Strawberry Fields Forever" to "a mountain wedding between Claudio Monteverdi and a jug band."

But the Beatle-bashing was incidental to the purpose of the article, a paean to English singer Petula Clark. At first listen, her four singles on which Gould focuses his analysis 1964's "Downtown," 1956's "My Love," and 1966's "A Sign of the Times" and "Who Am I?" sound like nothing more than adolescent-oriented pop hardly touched by any of that decade's musical (or indeed social) revolutions. But "this quartet of hits," in Gould's view, "was designed to convey the idea that, bound as she might be by limitations of timbre and range, she would not accept any corresponding restrictions of theme and sentiment," with the result that she came to command an audience "large, constant, and possessed of an enthusiasm which transcends the generations."




Gould says all this in The Search for Petula Clark, a 23-minute radio documentary that aired on the CBC on December 11, 1967, less than three weeks before his much better-known experimental documentary The Idea of North. He situates his analysis of the singer he calls "Pet Clark," which gets into not just her songs'...

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG/USD Under Pressure "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin gold price struggled to move above the $250-260 resistance and is moving lower against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $250 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD (data feed from Bitfinex).
  • There is a decent support forming on the downside around the $220-225 levels.

Bitcoin gold price is moving lower toward $220 against the US Dollar. BTG/USD struggled to move above $250 and is currently under pressure.

Bitcoin Gold Price Resistance

There was yet another test of the $260 resistance in bitcoin gold price against the US Dollar. The price once again was not to move above the $250 and $260 resistance levels. A new downside wave was initiated and the price moved below the $240 support. There was also a close below the $235 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the price is under pressure and may continue to struggle to move higher above $250.

On the downside, there is a decent support forming around the $220-225 levels. There were a couple of rejections from $220 and the price may once again find bids near $220. Should there be a break below $220, the price could decline further towards $200. On the upside, an initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $261 high to $224 low. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $250 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD.

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG USD

An intermediate resistance is around $243 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $261 high to $224 low is at $244. Therefore, it seems like $245 is also an important resistance before $250.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BTG/USD is currently in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTG/USD is near 40 and is heading south.

The Lie We Live: A Reality-Shattering Video That Will Open Your Eyes Wide "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

BY SOFO ARCHON

The world is in great pain. Our culture is in decline and the natural habitat is being destroyed. Inequality, poverty, deforestation, pollution, violence, and war are an everyday reality.

And what are we doing about all those things?

Nothing.

Were sitting passively in front of a screen, blinded by the mainstream media, and the rest of our time were wasting our lives working as wage slaves, just so we can earn some money to merely pay the bills and survive.

But you know what?

Nothing is going to change unless we take action. 

Of course, this isnt as easy as it sounds. Thats because most of us arent even aware of the atrocities that are happening all around us. We live in a world of lies that years upon years of brainwashing has made us construct in our minds.

To make change, we first need to open up our eyes and realize all the wrongness that prevails in society, and only then will we be able to correct it. The reality-shattering video below helps us do exactly that: It raises our awareness about how messed up our world is, and urges us to take responsible action to help relieve it from its immense suffering.

Are you ready to wake up?

How to outsmart incognito mode check by hacking sites in your browser "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Recently I came across several sites that showed a warning or paywall because I was using incognito mode. I think it is unfair. I should be allowed to use whatever browser and mode I want. This is a way to enforce their tracking tools. I know that incognito is not safe but its the bare minimum you can do to avoid ads to track you.

The whole thing took me about two hours and I learned a lot about browser extensions and hacking client-side code as an end user. I thought this might be worth sharing.

First, I had to look up how to detect private mode. As per my best knowledge, theres no browser API to detect private mode directly, so I was pretty sure it is a sneaky little script. This StackOverflow answer gave me a hint, so I knew Id have to look for webkitRequestFileSystem. I found this bit in one of those private loathing sites minified JavaScript code. Heres the exciting part:

https://medium.com/media/cda994c39d59a7ba81f611b3789d0f76/href

I could test the module by pasting it in incognito and public browser window dev console and run:

var module = {};
incognito(null, module);
module.exports.detectIncognito().then(console.log)

Bingo! This is it, I just have to find a way not to call the error callback in window.webkitRequestFileSystem(..). The easiest way is to monkey patch the function:

(function(webkitRequestFileSystem) {
window.webkitRequestFileSystem = function(t, s, success, error) {
webkitRequestFileSystem(t, s, success, success);
}
})(window.webkitRequestFileSystem);

If youre not familiar with the technique, monkey patching is a way to add, modify, or suppress the default behavior of a piece of code at runtime without changing its original source code.

Detour 1: First I started writing my own chrome extension using Extensionizr. Its a great tool generating Chrome extension boilerplate code. But in the end, I found an easier solution.

Whenever it comes to customizing websites I use Tampermonkey (for example hiding job ads on Stack Overflow when I really shouldnt spend time on looking fo...

7 Signs You Will Be With Someone Forever, According to Real Women "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Relationships are different for everyone. What it takes for one to make things work might not be what it takes for another, no two relationships are the exact same.

We all desire different things in life and in love. Just because I value the things I do does not mean that everyone else does. With that being said, if you pay attention to the things below you will see a trend in what people believe it takes to make a forever kind of relationship work. However, when you have found the one you just know it.

I came across this Reddit thread not too long ago and I could not help myself, I had to read all of the replies. The list below is compiled of my favorite responses to the question, Was there a single moment when you just knew that you wanted to be with your SO (significant other) forever? What was it? The stories these women spoke of were more than enough to bring the power of love rushing through my heart, love is very real for so many people.

7 Things Real Women Think Are Signs As To Whether or Not You Will Be With Someone Forever:

1. Yep, the eclipse this summer. My SO and I had been together a little over two years at that point. We went to Charleston, SC to be in the path of totality, where we got to watch the eclipse on the sea during a lightning storm (which conveniently didnt cover the eclipse but did send spectacular pink lightning across the sky during totality). I got hit with this enormous wave of emotion, the gist of which was that I wanted to share all of the amazing experiences Ill ever have with him, for the rest of my life. ChuushaHime

2. We were friends for quite a while before we started dating, so our relationship progressed quickly once it started heading in that direction. Before we were official, he took me to a dead shopping mall by his house at night. There was an arcade inside that was still in business, and as we were walking through the dark, quiet, abandoned mall, I realized that I wasnt creeped out at all because he was there. I felt 100% safe with him holding my hand. I had never felt that before with anyone else. When we got to the arcade, we saw one of his friends and he introduced me as his girlfriend for the first time, and that was it. I knew I trusted him and wanted him to be with me forever. Ashmoe32

3. A year and a half ago I was traveling in Europe with friends. My SO was at home in the states taking care of life and such. I was at a castle, the view was amazing, and I thought to...

Dont Miss These Incredible Astronomical Events This January! "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

If you are a fan of stargazing and astrological wonders, then January 2018 is your month! Astrologists and lovers of all things space-related are getting excited about the days to come with the month promising us not one, but two supermoons, a stunning meteor shower, and some fascinating planetary movement. While not all of these sights will be easily viewed with the naked eye, experts arent predicting that they will be hard to spot with the help of a telescope or binoculars!

If youre looking to take in the sights, there are some steps you can take to optimize your stargazing efforts this month. Seek out a location further from the city, eliminating the light pollution that can interfere with your view. You also want to find a location with an open view of the sky, such as a large field, cutting back on the objects that can get in your way like tall buildings or trees. You can also cut back on fumbling in the darkness and time needed for your eyes to adjust by investing in a red flashlight or covering your cell phone with red cellophane.

January 1st: New Years Supermoon

The month opened with a stunning supermoon, also known as the Wolf Moon on day 1. A supermoon refers to the phenomenon when the moon is full during the period of its orbit in which it is closest to the Earth. This causes the moon to appear 30% brighter and 14% larger in size than a standard full moon, and typically occur once every 13 months.

January 3rd/4th: Quadrantid Meteor Shower

Tonights the night! While it will be a little harder to view this years Quadrantid meteor shower due to the incredible amount of light that will still likely be coming from the moon following the supermoon, the annual show is sure to impress.

Editorial: Keeping Resolutions "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

As I look back at 2017, I wont say Ill miss it. There were highs and lows for me personally (I lost a grandmother, but received a new niece). For the newspaper industry, it was also a year full of highs and lows. You just have to look through the pages of E&P from this past year for evidence. Whether we were covering media disruptors, whistleblowers, or the medias relationship with President Trump, everyday was a new adventure.

Despite the industrys challenges financially, there were other kind of successes that we should celebrate. Reporters from the New York Times broke the news about Harvey Weinsteins sexual harassment allegations, resulting in his downfall as a powerful Hollywood producer and igniting a movement that shed light on other cases of assault. The Washington Post exposed an undercover sting operation where a woman was hired by conservative activists to plant a false story that she had a relationship as a teen with Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. Those are just two examples of how newspapers continue to push for the truthand I hope its something every newspaper continues to do moving forward.

If this past year taught us anything, its that we have to be ready for anything. So, when you look at 2018, what are you expecting for our industry?

Our Critical Thinking column this month asks that question: In 2018, what should the new years resolutions for the journalism industry include? For my first editorial this ye...

6 Ways to Instantly Remove Mucus and Phlegm from the Throat and Chest "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Breathing difficulties and coughing often go hand in hand with mucus and phlegm. Phlegm for those who do not know is a thick substance secreted by the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract and is responsible for fighting infections.

If you are dealing with an increased presence of phlegm you are most likely also dealing with weakness, fever, runny nose, and so forth. If you do not get this phlegm out blockages can and will occur. Below you will find a few ways that you can work to remove mucus in natural ways.

6 Natural Ways to Remove Mucus and Phlegm From Your Throat and Chest:

1. Stay Hydrated

Remembering to stay hydrated is extremely important. Always make sure you are getting enough liquids. Warm liquids are much more effective than cold it seems in regards to keeping the flow of mucus at bay. I like to sip on warm tea, water, and even chicken broth when I am feeling under the weather.

2. Honey and Lemon

Both of these things are very beneficial to our health. Because the lemon contains so much vitamin C it prevents congestion and helps to improve our immunity. All you have to do for this one is mix a few tablespoons of lemon juice into a tablespoon or two of honey. Take this at least three times each day.

3. Ginger Tea

Ginger tea can do so much more than most people realize. It is a very useful decongestant and can soothe your chest and throat. It is a great and effective treatment in regards to drying out phlegm. Check out the video below to see exactly how to make ginger tea. It doesnt take much and will have you feeling better in almost no time at all.

4. Turmeric

Turmeric contains something known as curcumin and it is a very powerful antibacterial. All you have to do for this one is add a teaspoon or two to a glass of warm water. Some people prefer milk but that is entirely up to you. Click here to learn more about the benefits of turmeric.

5. Humidify the Air

Keeping the air around you moisturized will work wonders. You can run this safely all day long if you remember to clean your humidifier as per instructions. If you do not have access to a...

Study Reveals that Night Owls Are More Intelligent Than Early Birds "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

There are two main camps of people those who prefer to get up early, bright and bushy eyed, ready to face the day, and those who are most active by the light of the moon, staying up until the wee hours. For a long time, we have been sold the idea that in order to succeed we need to set our alarms and get moving first thing in the morning, seizing the day. After all, the early bird gets the worm, right?

A study by Satoshi Kanazawa, a psychologist from London School of Economics (LSE) revealed a surprising truth Night owls are actually more intelligent than early birds! Thats right! If you prefer to burn the midnight oil it may actually be a sign of higher intelligence.

The research focused on the circadian rhythm, a biological cycle that is exhibited by nearly every species present in nature.  Also called the body clock, it regulates a number of the day to day processes in our life such as telling us when to go to sleep, when to wake up, or when we should eat. This cycle is influenced by a number of environmental triggers. For example, the time that the sun rises each day can affect your natural wakeup time. The human population, however, possess an ability that isnt seen in other species we can consciously choose to override this internal clock, choosing our own sleeping patterns.

If you often start your morning by hitting the snooze button, rolling over, and then going back to sleep, you are demonstrating a level of independence. You are choosing to ignore your biological responses in favor of your own chosen schedule. After collecting data from his study group, Kanazawa noted a pattern of similarities between the IQ level of the participants and the time that they regularly went to bed and woke up the following morning.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP/USD Testing Crucial Support "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price started a downside correction after trading above the $3.30 level against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted important bullish trend line with support at $2.40 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair might continue to hold the $2.40-2.30 support area and it could even bounce back.

Ripple price is currently correcting lower against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD is testing an important support at $2.30 and it could bounce back.

Ripple Price Support

There was an extension to yesterdays move in Ripple price as it moved above the $3.00 level against the US Dollar. The price even traded above the $3.30 level and posted a new all-time high of $3.3385. Later, a downside correction was initiated and the price moved below the $3.00 support. It also traded below a trend line support at $2.80. Moreover, there was a push below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $2.15 low to $3.331 high.

However, the downside wave was protected by the $2.40 support. In addition, yesterdays highlighted important bullish trend line with support at $2.40 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. It is acting as a major support and preventing declines below $2.30. More importantly, the 100 hourly simple moving average is also around $2.40 and is acting as a major hurdle for more losses.

At the moment, the price is trading around the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $2.15 low to $3.331 high. It has to hold the $2.30-2.40 support. On the upside, a break above a connecting bearish trend line at $2.70 is needed for a bounce back.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for XRP/USD is reducing its recent bearish slope.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for XRP/USD is near 40 and is moving down.

Stellar Rockets into the Cryptocurrency Top 10 After Tripling in a Week

2018 is still in diapers and yet the cryptocurrency top 10 is already looking very different to last year. Gone are the likes of dash, replaced by coins that have never reached these heady heights before: tron and stellar. The latter peaked at number six this week after tripling in value in seven days from a low of 32 cents. Stellar now boasts a $13 billion market cap. After lying low for the first three years of its existence, stellar is riding high and attracting widespread media attention.

From a Ripple to a Rocket

Stellar is described is an open-source project with a distributed, hybrid blockchain. It exists to facilitate cross-asset transfers of value, including payments. The Stellar Network forms an open, global financial network where all actors be they people, payment networks, or banks have equal access. If that sounds a lot like Ripple, thats because it is: Stellar is Ripples sibling, having been created by Ripple cofounder Jed McCaleb after he left the company. McCaleb is also famous for having sold Mt Gox to Mark Karpeles in 2011. Stellar was initially a fork of the Ripple protocol, before later being extensively rewritten.

MONERO MID-RANGE REVERSAL MAY DISRUPT SHORT TERM BEAR PROJECTION "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Like most high cap alt coins, Monero mid-range reversal may disrupt our bear projection.

Other than the lower lows visible in NEM-that is justifiable following a blast through $2, we expected sellers to push prices lower this week.

This looks unlikely especially now that DASH prices are reversing and turning their guns to $1300.

At the same time, there is resurgence in IOTA as buyers bid to close above $4.2 before the end of the week.

Lets have a look at other charts

NEM PRICES DIP AFTER CLEARING $2.0

NEM prices rocketsXEMUSD 4HR Chart for January 5, 2018

The Fibonacci extension tool is important for determining potential resistances and take profit levels.

It is obvious that NEM buyers are in charge and even after January 3 strong bull candlestick and break out, todays candlestick couldnt confirm buy pressure.

Instead, NEM buyers pushed prices above $2, fell short of 3rd Fibonacci extension level at $2.18 and tumbled.

Accompanying this depreciation is a classic stochastic sell signal and with the strength of bears, sellers should aim for $1.35 and last weeks highs of $1.1. These levels offer a fantastic buy opportunity in an overall strong NEM rally.

Latest Study on Water Fluoridation Again Links it to Lowered Childrens IQs "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

What would you think if I told you that there is poison in the tap water? If youre like some, you might think that there is no way the government could allow that to happen.

However, if you live in the United States its likely that you the water from your tap contains a type of neurotoxin called sodium fluoride. For decades, fluoride has been added to public water supplies for what some claim protects the health of our teeth, but is that really what it is doing?

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD Surging; More Gains Possible "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is moving nicely and it recently traded close to the $1000 level against the US Dollar.
  • There is a monster bullish trend line forming with support at $960 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair might continue to move higher and there are chances of more gains above $1000 in the near term.

Ethereum price is super bullish against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may soon move past $1000 for more gains toward $1200.

Ethereum Price Upside Move

There was no stopping ETH price as it moved above the $970 resistance against the US Dollar. The price traded close to the $1000 level and formed a new high at $991.59. Later, a downside move was initiated and the price dropped by around $80 to trade as low as $910.50. Buyers appeared above the $900 level and prevented further declines in ETH. A fresh upside wave was initiated and the price moved above the $950 level.

It was successful in breaking the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $991 high to $910 low. On the downside, there is a monster bullish trend line forming with support at $960 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is likely to continue higher toward $1000 in the near term. It could even break it to gain traction toward $1100. At the moment, it is struggling to settle above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $991 high to $910 low. Once it succeeds, there can be a push above $1000.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

If there is a correction from the current levels, the $950 and $960 support levels are likely to prevent declines.

Hourly MACD The MACD is gaining traction in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI The RSI is currently well above the 50 level and is showing a lot of positive signs.

Major Support Level $950

Major Resistance Level $1000

The Mind Machine And Its Addiction To Information "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The mind and its addiction to information is more harming than people realize, as information is its main power source that it uses to manage your matrix.

Addiction to Information

The Addiction to information in the age of information is not obvious to notice as the study of information is a vital requirement of being inside of a reality which consists of information.

For many there is a large case of obsessive compulsive disorder regarding the assimilation of new information. It is as if information has god-status in this reality.

People everyday, everywhere, are obsessed with gathering new information which, for the most part, does more harm than good psychologically.

Whether it is the news, sport, new age, astrology, occult or conspiracies, it does not matter.

Information regarding fields of knowledge alters the mind and the very being of a person. For an ignorant being, info can help, accurate absolute information can help exponentially, this is obvious.

But there is a fine line one has to estimate for themselves. One has to decide when the time is that knowing is in order. For a being that is soul-centered, information only serves to cloud and distort the clear clarity of awareness. Information is reinforcements for the mind that has lost all its power. (Read more on the subject here).

Whatever it is that you hold deer in the matrix, that which you end up understanding you end up upholding over your very own existence.

In the beginning, information was good for the creator and bad for the souls being lured by its deception the deception being that once the WORD is embraced, it swallows you into the reality conjured by the creator and this makes you by default the loser, the negative to the positive.

The mind is useless

The mind is the illusion within and without. Everything we know is merely the attempted measuring of the infinite by a finite operating system called the mind.

Ripple Chief the Latest Crypto Billionaire "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The number of new crypto billionaires increased exponentially in 2017, a pattern that is likely to continue into this year. The latest to join the elite club of crypto whales is Ripple co-founder Chris Larsen who is now richer than the co-founders of Google according to a CNBC report.

Thanks to the recent surge in XRP he has now become one of the richest people in America. According to Forbes who cited staff at the company executive chairman Larsen has a personal stash of 5.19 billion XRP and a 17% stake in the company. Taking current rates of XRP trading at $3.16 it will give him a net worth of $16.4 billion. Using Ripples record high of $3.80 yesterday he would have been worth almost $20 billion not including the company stake.

Forbes estimated his net worth to be closer to $37.3 billion which would make him the 15th richest American on the 2017 Forbes 400 list as of Monday. This places him level with Steve Ballmer, the former Microsoft CEO. CNBC estimated the figure to be around $60 billion which makes Chris Larsen richer than Larry Ellison, but just below Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. It is hard to put an exact figure on it as the crypto prices are too volatile to measure accurately, by the time you have read this article the price of Ripple will have changed again.

Ripples gains far outpaced those made by Bitcoin and Ethereum in 2017. XRP surged over 38,000% last year from $0.006 to $2.32, the company owns 61.3 billion of the total 100 billion coins making its market value a staggering $235 billion according to CNBC.

Ripples success has come largely from a number of partnerships with will established banks in the EU and Asia. It also has ties with Visa and strives to become the blockchain standard for inter-bank payments, replacing the somewhat archaic Swift protocol. Many traders are skeptical of XRP due to its ties with traditional banks and centralized company ownership. However as a technology it has proven to be one of the best to invest in. Those that bought XRP just a month ago will have seen gains of 1200%.

Further reports and speculation that Ripple could be coming to the Coinbase exchange has fueled intense investment and a lot of FOMO. The exchange has yet to officially confirm whether it will be listing XRP this year but in the land of crypto, hype is as good as anything. XRP is currently pulling back from its high of $3.82 yesterday and is trading at $3.16 with a 24 hour volume of $7.8 billion and a total market cap of $122.5 billion.

Setting up and Getting used to Gatsby "IndyWatch Feed Education"

There are a lot of modern paradigms that Gatsby takes care for its developer behind the scenes to start building and launch their project. Another cool thing about Gatsby that I like is its ever-growing data plugin ecosystem. It lets a developer fetch data directly into a Gatsby generated application using GraphQL.

Id list some of the advantages Gatsby holds:

  • HTML code is generated server side
  • Easily extensible by plugin ecosystem
  • Pre-configured Webpack based build system (no need to break your head)
  • Optimized for speed. Gatsby loads only critical parts, so that your site loads as fast as possible. Once loaded, Gatsby prefetches resources for other pages so that clicking on the site feels incredibly fast.
  • Automatic routing based on your directory structure. (no need for separate routing/navigation library)

If you know the nitty-gritty of React, you can definitely get started with Gatsbyjs in no time by reading this tutorial. I am not asking you to be advanced with React but only the familiar with its concepts. If you like to refresh your knowledge on the same or learn more about it, I recommend following links:

Enough with the introduction. Lets get started.

Installing Gatsby CLI

We will be using npm to install our first and basic tool that we need to setup any Gatsby project. You can use yarn too. In your terminal, please execute this command:

https://medium.com/media/440d1216fd18a1c77ddb0c353553c871/href

You might need to add sudo at the start of the command if it gives an error for permissions.

To start a new site, go to your desired project directly. Select a place on your system where you might be storing all the playground or applications in their initial stage and then in terminal:

Recently I read in CounterPunch two feminist rants against men. Not all men, just white heterosexual men. It is not always easy for a male of my generation to understand what feminists are saying, but I try.

by Paul Craig Roberts

One seems to be saying that women live in a society that puts in power men who believe that violence against women is acceptable.

Elevating her accusation to a fact, the writer says that women should not have to prove their case when they bring sexual harassment and assault charges, much less prove their personal validity to even be making a case against a man.

Is the writer saying that any irate woman should have the right to impugn a man with an unchallenged charge? Do men and American society believe that violence against women is acceptable?

So it looks like they are only revealing OUR TECH in a 13 year old story that they decided to release recently (in Oct-Dec 2017) which then was picked up by nearly all mainstream American media. And yes, we know that they reversed engineered some if not all of the tech to build those craft from ETs.. See my William Tompkins interview for more on this.

However, DeLonge and Team and specifically Luis Elizondo, FMR Director of Programs to Investigate Unidentified Aerial Threats, USG (CIA) and Chris Mellon, FMR Deputy Asst Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, are misleading the public into thinking that this TicTac sighting is of a UFO or for the unenlightened unidentified flying object or to use their words aerial threat. This is not true since it is actually built by us (a fleet of such vehicles were actually seen) and instead, (according to my source) it is a disclosure meant as a covert threat aimed to notify the Chinese of what kind of tech we have (dated back 13 years) and a way of owning the DISCLOSURE NARRATIVE! 


This means that DELONGE AND TEAM are already coming forward with falsified data You can bet that Steve Justice, FMR Advanced Systems Director for Lockheed Martins Skunk Works knows damn well whose craft those are and who built them. COME ON GUYS you can do better than this! According to my deep source this latest attempt to bring real disclosure about our SECRET SPACE PROGRAM in operation since the 1930s is our SSP showing off their tech and as such is misleading. If my deep source is correct, and I have full confidence in my source, then these guys (all members of Delonges Team) know full well what the craft is and should be ashamed for lying to the American public.

Latest Study on Water Fluoridation Again Links it to Lowered Childrens IQs "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Phillip Schneider; Waking Times

What would you think if I told you that there is poison in the tap water? If youre like some, you might think that there is no way the government could allow that to happen. However, if you live in the United States its likely that you the water from your tap contains a type of neurotoxin called sodium fluoride. For decades, fluoride has been added to public water supplies for what some claim protects the health of our teeth, but is that really what it is doing?

Study Links Fluoride to Lower IQs in Children After Birth

In 2012, Harvard School of Public Health published a study on the impact that fluoride has on the neurological development of children. This study was largely ignored by the legacy media, but was also highly circulated on social media throughout the following years, leading to a much greater awareness of the impact that fluoride has on our health, as well as where it comes from.


Now, in 2017, a study has come out in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives concluding that fluoride doesnt only damage the intelligence of children when consumed after birth, but also damages the cognitive ability of children when consumed by the pregnant mother.

The study examined 299 child-mother pairs in Mexico and examined the relationship between fluoride levels found in the urine of mothers who were pregnant, and the IQ test results of their children. What they found was that children born from mothers with higher levels of fluoride tended to score lower on their tests than those who had mothers with lower levels.

Meat Industry Reacts to New Cancer Guidelines Calling Processed Meat Carcinogenic "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Dr. Michael Greger; Care2 What was the meat industrys response to leading cancer charities recommendation to stop eating processed meat, like bacon, ham, hot dogs, sausage, and lunchmeat? The industry acknowledges that the most recent international cancer prevention guidelines now urge people to avoid processed meat. It is evident thatsuch a statement represents a clear and present danger for the meat industry, reads one response in the journal Meat Science. Processed meat, it continues, is a social necessity. (How could anyone live without bologna?) The challenge for the meat industry, the response outlines, is to find a way to maintain the consumption of these convenience products while somehow not damaging public health. Were still not sure what in processed meat is so carcinogenic, but the most probable educated guess for explaining the damaging effect of processed meats involves heme iron, along with nitrosamine and free radical formation, ultimately resulting in carcinogenic DNA damage. To reduce the nitrosamines, they could remove the nitrites, something the industry has been considering for decades because of the long-known toxic effects they cause. The industry adds them to keep the meat pink. There are, evidently, other coloring additives available. Nevertheless, its going to be hard to get industry to change in view of the positive effects of these substances as preservatives and in achieving a desirable flavour and red colour developing ingredients. No one wants green eggs and ham. Read more

A Woman Used Spice To Cure Blood Cancer, After Years Of Western Medicine Failing "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by The Daily Sheeple

A London woman is telling her story of using a natural remedy to cure blood cancer after years of fighting a losing battle using Western medicine as her main weapon. Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on the grueling treatments that failed to stop her cancer and putting her trust in nature.

Ferguson put her trust in turmeric. According to the Daily Mail UK, doctors are claiming this is the first recorded incident of a patient recovering by using a spice after stopping medical treatment. Her doctors, from Barts Health NHS Trust in London, wrote about her transition to a natural remedy in the British Medical Journal Case Reports.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report in which curcumin has demonstrated an objective response in progressive disease in the absence of conventional treatment, the doctors wrote.


The type of cancer Ferguson was plagued with, which has an average survival rate of just over five years, was causing increasing back pain and she had already had a second relapse when she knew she needed to make a change. With her myeloma spreading rapidly, and typical treatments continuing to fail, including three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin (one of the main compounds in turmeric) a day. She also quite doing chemotherapy and the stem cell transplants that had failed her.

Could We Face a Mini Ice Age in the Next 30 Years? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by John Naish; Daily Mail

Scientists make extraordinary prediction based on the sun's natural cycles... and it would even reverse global warming!

The festive cold snap and Storm Dylans raging gales have brought a sharp dose of snowy winter misery to our shores.

But if that seems bad enough, imagine our temperatures plummeting to such bone-aching lows that British rivers freeze for months at a time.

Our streets would become impassable ice sheets, industry would grind to a halt, vital supplies would be stranded, hospitals overwhelmed and power supplies fail under the unprecedented demand.

Similarly lethal chaos has occurred before, in the harshest period of a centuries-long European cold snap called the Little Ice Age.


Between the 17th and early 19th centuries, average temperatures dropped by two degrees centigrade and our winters became so vicious the Thames froze utterly on seven occasions.

With its major river blocked, Londons commerce stalled. In the city and surrounding countryside, thousands of people died. Farm animals were wiped out. The wind was even cold enough to crack tree trunks.

Tron becomes sixth most popular altcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The movers and shakers of the altcoin world certainly do move fast. The top ten cryptocurrencies by market capacity shifts on an almost hourly basis with new contenders rapidly ascending the charts. The year has started well for cryptos and some altcoins are showing an early lead. Tron is one of them.

Tronix has firmly taken 6th spot on the capacity charts, usurping Nem, Stella, and Litecoin. Its market capacity at the time of writing stands at $18 billion. The 24-hour trade volume has been a staggering $5 billion which is immense for a relatively new altcoin. TRX is currently trading at an all-time high of $0.28 rising in an almost exponential curve from $0.003 at the beginning of the month. This represents an increase of almost 7000% in a month.

So what could be the driving force behind Trons epic ascent? Jack Ma Hupan University educated founder, Justin Sun, is very active on Twitter and recent posts indicate that another partnership is in the pipeline;

More partnerships are coming! Even #NASDAQ listed companies and the giant companies with more than 100 million users started to contact us for partnership. We will be huge soon!

We will announce our partnership with a very prestigious public listed company next week. Looking forward to it! We will have a live streaming on January 6th 10am GMT+8 Beijing time. Update you with the latest partnership and tech development. Please dont miss the show!

Tron has recently partnered with oBike, an Asian bike sharing company, and Game.com, a leading online gaming platform. The collaboration intends to launch a similar game to CryptoKitties which clogged up the Ethereum network during the peak of its frenzy last year.

Sun has close ties to e-commerce giant Alibaba chief Jack Ma and rumors of a partnership between those two could be fueling speculation.

Tronix is a blockchain based protocol for monetizing the digital entertainment industry. It is traded heavily on Binance which has almost 90% of the total volume. There is a current supply of 100 billion TRX with 65 billion in circulation, according to Coinmarketcap.com TRX is up 140% in the past 24 hours.

Traders and investors are poised for new partnership announcements which are likely to send the price of Tron even higher.

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 01/05/2018 Small Uptrend Gaining Traction "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price is gaining a bit of bullish momentum since breaking past the descending triangle resistance.
  • Price is trading inside an ascending channel and has just bounced off support.
  • Bitcoin could be headed to the top of the channel from here and the Fib extension tool shows other potential upside targets.

Bitcoin price is resuming its short-term climb and could have its sights set on the next upside targets on the Fib levels.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA has crossed above the longer-term 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the upside. This means that the short-term uptrend is more likely to continue than to reverse. In addition, these moving averages are close to the channel support and swing low, adding to its strength as a floor in the event of another dip.

Bitcoin price is currently testing the 38.2% Fibonacci extension level but could have bullish momentum enough to climb to the 50% level at $15,587. The 61.8% level is at $15,887 and the 76.4% extension is at $16,257. The full extension is located at $16,856.95.

However, stochastic is already dipping into overbought territory to signal a slowdown in bullish momentum. Turning lower could draw sellers back to the game and lead to another slide for bitcoin price. RSI, on the other hand, has more room to climb and bitcoin could follow suit.

Market Factors

Dollar weakness has been in play once more as the US currency mostly shrugged off upbeat leading jobs indicators. The Challenger job cuts and ADP non-farm employment change figure both hinted at an upside NFP surprise, but traders seem doubtful that this could shore up Fed tightening plans.

Meanwhile, bitcoin itself is under lower volatility these days as fears of increased regulation in several countries is keeping a lid on activity. Nonetheless several analysts remain bullish on price even as traders are buying up cheaper alternatives and Ripple.

Last weekend, the New Year rang in with smiles and tears of joy for an Oregon couple accused of child neglect over a legal medical marijuana harvest and a mothers mental health. Kitrina Nelson and Cody Stanphill-Kiser of Vale, Oregon, were blessed with a holiday miracle. Kitrinas daughter, Kaylynn, was returned home by Oregon Child Protective Services, the day before the Holiday weekend.

Kitrina was unhappy with the inadequate representation she had been receiving from him.

Canadian investors have decided to put money and effort into a wind-powered crypto mining undertaking in Romania. To make it happen, they have finalized a deal to acquire a wind farm capable of producing enough energy to light the bulbs in over 30,000 homes. Driven by enthusiasm about the project, they have even added Blockchain Power to their companys name.

The region is shared by the poorest EU member states Romania and Bulgaria. It is a flat, wheat growing land, with no hills or mountains to stop the constant air currents from all cardinal directions. Wind farms are a common sight there.

Having Sex Vs. Making Love: The Real Difference Between the Two "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Sex and making love are two very different things to most people. What are each of these for you?

Making love is a much more emotional experience than merely having sex. The act of intercourse itself is just something of bodily pleasure where-as love making soothes the soul. Love making is a very spiritual process even for those who are not spiritually inclined. It brings us closer and helps us build a much more intense connection with the person we are engaging with.

Sex is simply instinctive and can be had regardless of the lack of emotion or connection. Now, for some this emotionless physical experience is enough, but for others, something more is craved. Making love, as the name suggests, is an expression of love. It is far more complex than intercourse itself.

Sex is all about getting off and making love is about enjoying the moment and really getting to the next level together. Love making is using more than just your genitals to access one another on an emotional level. Dont get me wrong, I am not bashing casual, consensual sex if that is what you enjoy and want to do feel free to go for it. I am merely asking, is that enough?

Unless your sexuality rises and reaches to love it is mundane, it has nothing sacred about it. When your sex becomes love, then it is entering into a totally different dimension the dimension of the mysterious and the miraculous. Now it is becoming religious, sacred, it is no longer profane. ~ Osho

When you make love you let someone see you in your most vulnerable state and you share things others would never be able to imagine. Making love goes far beyond the rose petals and candles that chick flicks make it out to be. Making love is a sacred experience. It is bridging a gap bet...

Cardano (ADA) and Stellar (XLM) Overview "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We have two rising stars in the cryptocurrency field. Cardano (ADA) and Stellar (XLM) are now both in the top 10 largets cryptocurrencies by market cap. Lets take a look at both and do a quick comparison.

What is Cardano Blockchain?

Cardano is now the fifth largest crypto by market cap. It is a third generation cryptocurrency and the first blockchain platform to evolve out of a scientific philosophy and a research-first driven approach.

Cardano blockchain development team consists of a large global collective of expert engineers and researchers.

Cardanos Multiple Layers

Unlike Bitcoin, Cardano has two layers.

The first one is the Cardano Settlement Layer(CSL).  CSL works as a more efficient bitcoin, handling the balance ledger and basic transaction side of things.

The second layer is the Cardano Computation Layer. This is where decentralized apps and smart contracts built on Cardano will be based and can operate separately on the CSL layer.

These multiple layers mean that you can make changes to the platform without a fork.

Cardanos Token, ADA Price Action

Cardanos token, Ada, reached new highs above $1.20 this week. The reason for the surge could be the anticipation of the next major update for the platform being due for release next week.

What is the Stellar Blockchain?

Stellar aims to be a one-stop shop in the financial world, where with just one integration into the Stellar Network, everyone including, payment networks, banks and market participants have equal economic access economic. Stellar operates a network with the blockchain technology behind bitcoin.

My Girlfriend Keeps Talking About The Cramps but Cant Even Name One of Their Albums "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

My Girlfriend keeps talking about The Cramps but cant even name a song of theirs.

Its cute, really, but Im just not sure about her dedication to this relationship if shes not even going to learn what shes talking about.
Its like once a month or so shell sit around crying and say stupid shit like, Oh my God, I cant stand The Cramps or, The Cramps suck so bad, you just wouldnt get it. And yeah, I dont get it, because The Cramps rule and this bitch is a poser. Once I asked her if its because Can Your Pussy Do the Dog? comes off as offensive or something and she just looked confused. Seriously? You dont even know THAT song?

I wish that was the only time but this is a constant and repeating thing. Im honestly sick and tired of this behavior. If the punkest thing about her is that she is dating me, then this is not going to work. A few months ago, on the way to her sisters wedding she kept talking about The Ceremony, everyone knows its just Ceremony.

Look, I understand that Im always going to be the better half of any relationship. Im only 28 and have an 89 Honda Accord that starts almost every time. I also got this sweet spot in the basement of my dads place, which is always clean because he has a maid that comes three times a week. Thats almost as often as maids clean hotels, so I guess you could say everyday is like a vacation with me. Im also pretty damn thoughtful. I buy ribbed condoms, I barely flirt in front of her, and whenever she needs a ride or something I always have a pretty good excuse for not doing it.
To top it all off, shes thanked in the liner notes of the demo of every band Im in. For those keeping count, thats two bands.

Clearly, Im a caring partner and all Im just asking is that my girlfriend at least learns stuff about these bands. I do it because I care and I want to see her be better than she is. Ive always been told to never fall in love with a persons potential but this girl can be perfect once she just listens to every band I do. I just hope she reaches that potential before she turns 18 next month.

9 Signs He Loves You, Even If He Doesnt Say It Out Loud "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

As human beings, we all display affection in different ways. To add insult to injury, many of us have also been hurt and are afraid of showing affection too quickly.

Now, for most of us, if someone we love isnt as affectionate through their words it can be a bit confusing. Sometimes we dont always realize that they are doing things they are doing because they love us and a little reminder from time to time might be exactly what we need. If someone is doing the following things then they do love you whether they actually say I love you or not.

9 Signs He Proves His Love For You Without Words:

1. He shows his emotions when he is upset.

When he is upset he doesnt hide it. He makes you aware of it and you both work through it. He does not keep things from you.

2. He stands by your side even on your worst days.

He is by your side even when you dont want anyone around. He will be there through all the good times and all the bad times. You cannot get rid of him easily if you need a shoulder to cry on he is right there.

3. He doesnt let anyone talk badly about you.

If someone says something rude about you, he is the first to take up for you. He knows how fantastic you are and cannot stand for anyone to say otherwise. You mean a lot to him.

4. He is always proud of you.

He is proud of you and all that you have done in life. He sees you for who you truly are and knows you have so much more to accomplish. This person sees everything you are capable of and pushes you to follow your dreams.

5. He tries to make good impressions with your friends and family.

He does his best to ensure your friends and family see him in a positive light. He wants to make you proud and win them all over.

6. He respects you.

He really respects you. Your opinion and emotions matter to him. If you are upset he is as well.

7. He does not push your boundaries.

He knows when to stop and can tell when he is getting on your nerves. He is kind and respectful in this as he does not try to force you into anything you do not want to do. It is much harder to find partners who dont push than you think.

8. He talks about his future with you.

Your partner makes it known he sees a future with you. When you talk about your goals and your dreams they include one another. He isnt going to...

Ginkgetin suppresses the growth of medulloblastoma. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Nat Prod Bioprospect. 2015 Mar 29. Epub 2015 Mar 29. PMID: 25821199 Abstract Title:  Biflavone Ginkgetin, a Novel Wnt Inhibitor, Suppresses the Growth of Medulloblastoma. Abstract:  Medulloblastoma (MB) is a form of malignant brain tumor that predominantly arises in infants and children, of which approximately 25 % is due to upregulation of canonical Wnt pathway with mainly mutations in CTNNB1. Therefore, Wnt inhibitors could offer rational therapeutic strategies and chemoprevention for this malignant cancer. In our present study, we undertook a screening for antagonists of Wnt signaling from 600 natural compounds, and identified Ginkgetin, a biflavone isolated from Cephalotaxus fortunei var. alpina. Ginkgetin inhibited Wnt pathway with an IC50 value around 5.92 M and structure-activity relationship analysis suggested the methoxy group in Ginkgetin as a functional group. Biflavone Ginkgetin showedobvious cytotoxicity in Daoy and D283 MB cells. Cell cycle analysis by flow cytometry showed that Ginkgetin induced efficiently G2/M phase arrest in Daoy cells. Further mechanism studies showed that Ginkgetin reduced the expression of Wnt target genes, including Axin2, cyclinD1 and survivin in MB cells. The phosphorylation level of -catenin also decreased in a time- and concentration-dependent manner. Collectively, our data suggest that Ginkgetin is a novel inhibitor of Wnt signaling, and as such warrants further exploration as a promising anti-medulloblastoma candidate.

Abstract:  Disruption of neuronal iron homeostasis and oxidative stress are closely related to the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD). Ginkgetin, a natural biflavonoid isolated from leaves of Ginkgo biloba L, has many known effects, including anti-inflammatory, anti-influenza virus, and anti-fungal activities, but its underlying mechanism of the neuroprotective effects in PD remains unclear. The present study utilized PD models induced by 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP(+)) and 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1, 2, 3, 6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) to explore the neuroprotective ability of ginkgetin in vivo and in vitro. Our results showed that ginkgetin could provide significant protection from MPP(+)-induced cell damage in vitro by decreasing the levels of intracellular reactive oxygen species and maintaining mitochondrial membrane potential. Meanwhile, ginkgetin dramatically inhibited cell apoptosis induced by MPP+ through the caspase-3 and Bcl2/Bax pathway. Moreover, ginkgetin significantly improved sensorimotor coordination in a mouse PD model induced by MPTP by dramatically inhibiting the decrease of tyrosine hydroxylase expression in the substantia nigra and superoxide dismutase activity in the striatum. Interestingly, ginkgetin could strongly chelate ferrous ion and thereby inhibit the increase of the intracellular labile iron pool through downregulating L-ferritin and upregulating transferrin receptor 1. These results indicate that the neuroprotective mechanism of ginkgetin against neurological injury induced by MPTP occurs via regulating iron homeostasis. Therefore, ginkgetin may provide neuroprotective therapy for PD and iron metabolism disorder related diseases.

The findings demonstrated that ginkgetin exerts growth inhibitory and apoptotic effects on osteosarcoma cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Rep. 2016 Feb ;35(2):1034-40. Epub 2015 Nov 16. PMID: 26573608 Abstract Title:  Ginkgetin exerts growth inhibitory and apoptotic effects on osteosarcoma cells through inhibition of STAT3 and activation of caspase-3/9. Abstract:  Osteosarcoma is composed of tumor osteoblasts and bone-like tissues, with malignant tumors originating from osteogenesis organization. Osteosarcoma is a primary malignant bone tumor. Invasion and metastasis of osteosarcoma affect the prognosis of patients. However, effective therapeutic treatments remain to be identified. The aim of the present study was to investigate the possible inhibitory and apoptotic effects of ginkgetin in osteosarcoma cells. 3.3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) assays were used to determine the effect ginkgetin exerted on the growth of osteosarcoma cells. Flow cytometry was used to determine cell apoptosis. STAT3 protein expression and activation of caspase-3/9 were measured using western blot analysis and the MTT and LDH assays, respectively. The results showed that ginkgetin inhibited cell growth and induced cell cytotoxicity in osteosarcoma cells in a dose-dependent manner. Treatment with ginkgetin significantly activated the apoptosis of osteosarcoma cells in a concentration-dependent manner. The anticancer activity of ginkgetin significantly inhibited STAT3 and promoted caspase-3/9 activation in osteosarcoma cells. The findings demonstrated that ginkgetin exerts growth inhibitory and apoptotic effects on osteosarcoma cells through the inhibition of STAT3 and activation of caspase-3/9.

RELIABLE sources of NEWS or INFORMATION. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

I contend ANYONE citing "CIA sources" is a LIAR. The CIA History is one of LIES, Deceptions, Trickery, Murders, Assasination, and "unreliable"(to be kind) information.

ie: Saddam's Nukes, Ozwald the "lone gunman", Cuban Invasion "wanted" by Cubans, Gulf Of Tonkin, Bin-Laden behind 9/11, USS Liberty "mistake" by Israel, and literally THOUSANDS of other PROVEN LIES to Americans.

Infowars REGULARLY cites such bogus sources. AJ is a PROVEN LIAR, being run by the Deep State itself as "controlled opposition", to ferment Deception, Division, Warmongering attitudes, and ALWAYS, ALWAYS to Conceal Israeli International CRIMINAL behavior.

We all HOPE for a better World, where morality, justice, and Doing What is Right are their own rewards.

Those PREYING upon our Hopes, are equally as CORRUPT as those doing the EVIL themselves.

NON-INFORMATION, being unproven, un-documented CANNOT be believed. Tall tales of "draining the swamp" or "Deep State takedowns" are purely FICTICIOUS. It's called DIS-INFORMATION, and that says CIA all over it.

Dinosaur Eggs & Dragon Shorts "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Last year summer in Wellington was a non-starter.  I barely made a summer wardrobe, and didnt get to wear the few pieces I did make.  This year Wellington is making up for lost sunshine with a vengeance.  Its been SUNNY and STICKY.  Mr D & I have been spending lots of time outside, gardening and going for walks, which means lots of shorts & T-shirts.

Luckily I found the perfect shorts fabric over winter.  Isnt it wonderful when you find a fabric and it tells you exactly what it wants to be?  Down to the last detail!  So often I know what I want to make, but cant find the right fabric, or find gorgeous fabric, and have a good general idea of what it should be, but figuring out the design details takes more time than making the actual thing

Last winter Made Marion Craft got in this fabulous linen blend with a little triangular pattern in yellow & black:

Mind/Body Medicine: Healing Pain "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Evolve+Ascend.com

The cure for the pain is in the pain. ~ Jellaludin Rumi

Were a culture that medicates our pain. We medicate our physical pain with medicine. We medicate our emotional pain with medicine. And that medicine may not necessarily be of the pharmaceutical sort. It could be workaholism. It could be other medicines that distract us from sensations and feelings, like food, substances, relationships. Even addiction to yoga. (Ive been there.)

But in medicating our various pains, we make it impossible to ever heal them.

As Rumi, the Sufi mystic poet offered, The cure for the pain is in the pain.


All physical pain has an emotional component. Addressing this emotional component can relieve and even heal our physical pain. And emotional pain, while profoundly real for all of us, finds its cause in our misunderstanding and misuse of the mind.

These notions are firmly rooted in the ancient global healing traditions, find concurrence in the lineage of contemporary Western medicine, and now find firm footing in the wide body of scientific research supporting the veracity of thoughts and feelings as potent mediators of health outcomes.

Yves Tanguy: Decoding Surrealism "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

113572735X

On the 5th of January 1900, the French surrealist painter Yves Tanguy was born in Paris. The journey that led him to his eventual profession as a painter can be described as one worthy of any decent surrealist. In 1918, Tanguy started working for the merchant navy; he was then drafted into the Army, but in 1922, he decided to return to Paris, where he did various odd jobs, until his life-transforming epiphany. According to the artists recollections, the major impulse to start drawing came after seeing one of de Chiricos paintings. This sudden urge to become an artist came then as much from Tanguys unconscious as the subjects of his later works, making of him one of the greatest representatives of Surrealism. In that his art relies above all on surprise, blind chance, involuntary memory and stream-of-unconsciousness whilst on the other hand there is a single-minded devotion to belle peinture and nostalgia for a world of ideal, if irrational beauty reflect isolated inner experiences that are timeless. (Stuart Preston, Paris, Beaubourg. Yves Tanguy, The Burlington Magazine, Vol. 124, No. 954, Special Issue Devoted to Twentieth-Century Art, September, 1982). In 1924, Tanguy was introduced into the circle of surrealist artists around Andr Breton, whose...

8 Life Changes You Must Make to Reduce Anxiety "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Anxiety is a very real issue, and it is something tons of people suffer from worldwide. It can range from mild to severe and take a very serious toll on the person who has a disorder regarding it.

As someone who is affected by anxiety, I can assure you it is not something to joke about. There are roughly 40 million adults in the United States age 18 or older dealing with some kind of anxiety disorder. While anxiety disorders are treatable, almost 40 percent of all suffering from them do not get the treatment they need.

While anxiety affects all of us at one time or another, for those who suffer from an anxiety disorder it is much worse. They are often overwhelmed with excessive worry to the extent where it interferes with their daily lives. I know for someone without an anxiety disorder it seems a bit outlandish but it is all too real.

When it comes to keeping your anxiety under control there are a few things you can do that make a huge difference. While my anxiety is still an issue, doing the things listed below really made a difference in my life. That being said, if your anxiety is to the point where it is affecting your wellbeing, you may need to also seek professional help.

8 Things That Will Help You Reduce Your Anxiety:

1. Declutter your life and your surroundings.

The less clutter in your life the better. Declutter everything you can. And while your physical surroundings may be cluttered, remember to not leave out your mind.

2. Cut negative/stressful people out of your life.

Dont let negative or stressful people rule your life. Live your life for yourself. If someone does not like you or the things you do, cut them out.

3. Get really into hobbies that make you happy.

Find something you are passionate about and get into it. Have all the fun you deserve. Let your mind be taken off of the stress and worry even if just for a little while.

4. Meditate more often.

Meditation works wonders for anxiety. I meditate at least once a day for 20 minutes but the more you do it the better. It is a way to let go of the things that are bothering you.

5. Let your support system actually be there for you.

Let the people who are supposed to be there for you actually be there for you. Dont send them away when you are upset. Let them be your shoulder to cry on when you are upset.

6. Learn to step back and breathe when you need to.

Breathing correctly is important. You need to know when you are getting overwhelmed that you c...

Selco: How to Stay Warm During a Long-Term SHTF Situation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper

snow ice winter

As America is dealing with a record-breaking cold snap and a weird storm hitting the East Coast, some folks are having to handle the whole thing with the power out also. But we all know that at least this time, our situation is temporary. Most of us have power, and those who dont will have it restored within a few days. But what if you had to stay warm during a long-term SHTF situation?

After your warm response to Selcos story about Christmas during the SHTF in Bosnia, I hired him to start writing for us more often. Today, he shares with us what it was like to try and stay warm during an entire year in a war zone without any type of utilities. Its a lot of information, and we can apply this to our preps.

Selcos information is incredibly valuable because he has actually been through what we plan for during our preparedness endeavors. He teaches this information in-depth on his website, SHTF School. Lets get started.

The US is dealing with quite a cold snap right now, and it got me thinking about your SHTF year in Bosnia. First of all, what is the winter like there? How cold does it get and what is the climate?

In a small part of the country close to Adriatic sea it is Mediterranean climate with mild winters and temperatures then goes just below 0 or -5 Celsius (32-23 Fahrenheit) and in other parts of country it is a Continental climate with temperatures during the winter -10 or -18 (14-5 Fahrenheit), with cold waves down to -26 (-15 Fahrenheit) and a lot of snow. 

Very usual are periods of strong cold wind (Bora) that actually can lower your body temperature very fast and complicate things.

 Sounds weird but after experiencing snow and -20 during SHTF and Bora at -2, I had most problems with that wind and -2 Celsius simply because it lowers...

Game of Thrones author found in HBO torture chamber "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Acclaimed American novelist George R. R. Martin has spent the past year in a small cell being tortured by employees of the premium television network HBO, it has emerged.

The author, whose A Song of Ice and Fire novels have provided the inspiration for the popular TV series Game of Thrones, was reportedly abused into disclosing key story developments and plot twists as the network began work on the series final season, which is based on the last two as yet unpublished titles of Martins saga.

Im afraid youre going to have to tell us all about the fate of Westeros my dear George, HBOs chairman Richard Plepler allegedly told Martin at the beginning of one of the torture sessions, wielding a dagger. Or else winter is coming for you.

According to some reports, Martin received frequent visits from English actress Lena Headey, who whispered obscenities into his ears while her Irish counterpart Iwan Rheon cackled demonically and stated his intention to cut off the authors private parts.

On one occasion, Mr Plepler even threatened to unleash the dragon, an apparent reference to the executives much-feared wife Lisa Ruchlamer.

The author is said to have disclosed a great number of secrets after being blackmailed by cast member Jerome Flynn, who said he would subject him to live renditions of the 90s hits of pop duo Robson and Jerome.

Martin, though a prolific writer, has found himself in hot water after failing to keep pace with HBOs tight production schedule.

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling expressed sympathy for the embattled fantasy author, revealing that she herself felt the heat back in 2006, when her progress on The Deathly Hallows became a cause for corporate concern.

Warner Bros threatened me with black magic if I didnt work faster, she tweeted. They even sent me a severed owls head through the post.

Ginsenoside Rg3 suppresses angiogenesis in developing endometrial lesions. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2017 ;12(11):e0186520. Epub 2017 Nov 15. PMID: 29140979 Abstract Title:  Ginsenoside Rg3 inhibits angiogenesis in a rat model of endometriosis through the VEGFR-2-mediated PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the link between the inhibitory effect of ginsenoside Rg3 on the ectopic endometrium growth and the VEGFR-2-mediated PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway, a mechanism known to inhibit angiogenesis and induce ectopic endometrial cell apoptosis.MATERIALS AND METHODS: A model of endometriosis was established by allotransplantation in rats. The rats were randomly divided into 5 groups: the ginsenoside Rg3 low-dose group (group A,5mg/kgBW/d of ginsenoside Rg3), the ginsenoside Rg3 high-dose group (group B, 10mg/kgBW/d of ginsenoside Rg3), the gestrinone group (group C, 0.5mg/kgBW/d of gestrinone), the control group (groupD, 10ml/kg BW/d of 0.5%CMC-Na) and the ovariectomized group (group E, 10ml/kgBW/d of 0.5%CMC-Na). Rats were executed after 21 days of continuous administration. The ectopic endometrium volume was measured and the inhibitory rate was calculated. The levels of serum estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) were detected by Electro-Chemiluminescence Immunoassay (ECLI). The protein expressionof VEGF, VEGFR-2, p-Akt, and p-mTOR inthe ectopic endometrium wastested by immunohistochemistry(IHC) and Western Blotting. The mRNA expression levels of VEGF, VEGFR-2, Akt, and mTOR were tested by Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). The apoptosis rate of the ectopic endometrial cells was detected by Terminal Deoxynucleotidyl Transferase-mediated Digoxigenin-dUTP Nick-End Labeling Assay(TUNEL).MAIN RESULTS: Tissue measurements revealed a dose-dependent inhibition effect of ginsenoside Rg3 on the growth of the ectopic endometrium in treated rats compared to controls. Immunohistochemical and Western Blotting assays confirmed that the expression of VEGF, p-Akt, and p-mTOR was down-regulated in ginsenoside Rg3 -treated lesions. Real-time PCR results also showed that the mRNA expression levels of VEGF, Akt, and mTOR in the ectopic endometrium were reduced.CONCLUSIONS: The present study demonstrates, for the first time, that ginsenoside Rg3 suppresses angiogenesis in developing endometrial lesions. The ginsenoside Rg3 inhibitory effect on the growth of the ectopic endometrium in EMs rats might occur through the blocking of the VEGFR-2-mediated PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway, thus halting angiogenesis and promoting the apoptosis of ectopic endometrial cells.
