The Night in My Hair: Henna, Syria, and the Travel Ban "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

 

The night the United States launches fifty Tomahawk missiles on the Syrian Shayrat airbase near Homs, I am washing henna and indigo out of my hair. The tub is splashed with tourmaline blue, speckled like the delicate markings on a sparrows egg, and from the living room I can hear the newscasters referring to margin of error, airpower, and the perils of the region. The water runs down the drain.

When I was little, I used to pore over the photo albums of my parents wedding and their honeymoon in Syria, tracing the shots of my cousins and aunts and great-grandparents lined up in the courtyard for family photos, dozens of demitasses of Turkish coffee and laughter over backgammon. How young and strong my father still looked in the eighties, fifteen years before the doctors saw a constellation of powdered glass strewn across the wide basin of his lungs.

The reporter drones on, and the night bursts open on the other side of the world. I squeeze the last of the muddy water from my hair, riming my fingernails with blue.

*

The first time my mother spread a warm, moss-colored pudding of henna on my hair, it was because my father had some left over from dying his own. Henna, a powdered herb that comes from the plant Lawsonia inermis, has been used in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia to color and condition hair for thousands of years. Many religious groupsincluding Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Christians, Hindus, and Zoroastriansalso use henna for body art, particularly for weddings, in regions where henna is traditionally grown. Muslims decorate their hands and feet with henna for Eid and other celebrations. Henna leaves a reddish tint to skin and to dark hair like mine, imparting subtle red highlights mostly visible only in the sun. Henna stains lighter hair a fiery orange red.

Indigo, on the other hand, produces a blue-green dye youre familiar with if youve ever washed a cheap pair of dark jeans and hung them to drip-dry over a shower rod. Indigo requires hennas orange-red dye molecules, called lawsone, to bind to the hair shaft. When henna is followed by indigo in a two-step process, the hair is dyed dark and glossy, the color ranging from a rich chocolate to a deep, warm black.

My father had black hair in all except one...

The Railway Transport Moves Towards Using Blockchain Technology "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

On 15 February, within the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi, a memorandum of cooperation was signed between Novotrans, one of the largest railway rolling stock operators in Russia and the CIS, and UniversaBlockchain. The representatives of Novotrans told BitJournal.mediaabot this event.

The main objective of our joint project with Novotrans is toperform the digitization of the train cars, transferring their statutes (loading, unloading, location) to blockchain and to include all details and specifics of the train maintenanceto the digital history of railway carriages. If all rolling stock processes are transferred to blockchain, it is impossible to fake or change any information about the railway carriage and the goods carried inside. This informationcan also be accessed by each participant of the network or transaction at any moment.

The properblockchain can significantly reduce production costs and speed up all the processes, and that is why this idea attracts not only big business, but government sector as well, including ArkadyDvorkovich, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Chairman of the Board of Directors of JSC Russian Railways, who has expressed his interest in the technology, said Alexander Borodich, founder of the Universa.io blockchain platform.

The joint project came into force upon signing the agreement. It can take about a year to fully transit the companys cars to blockchain, forNovotrans operates tens of thousands of the train cars. Universa is the blockchain project which raised $28 million in token sale. It focuses on creating smart contracts in the real economy with the wide scope of application, from electronic keys in aerial vehiclesto transactions between financial institutions. The current speed of transactions on the Universa platform reaches 22 thousand per second.

A Mothers Worst Nightmare Continues "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Marci Webbers story was previously published on Mad in America on December 10, 2016 (A Mothers Very, Very Worst Nightmare). In 2010, Marci was a 43 year old single mom of three and a law student. She had been prescribed an increasing array of psychiatric medications with poor medical monitoring for stress, and experienced a medication-induced psychotic episode. Under the delusion that her four year old daughter Maggie was about to meet a terrible fate, she killed her to save her and then tried to kill herself. She was found not guilty by reason of insanity and committed to a state mental institution in the state of Illinois for up to 99 years.

I am Marcis former therapist and have known her since 2002. For over seven years now, Marci and I have been trying unsuccessfully to get the mental health system and judicial system to acknowledge the true cause of her crime and let her go. Instead, Marci has been increasingly cruelly and inhumanely treated and retaliated against for speaking the truth.

On January 5th I sent the following letter of complaint to the Illinois Attorney Generals Office raising the possibility of official corruption. The Attorney Generals Office declined to act, referring it to the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Inspector Generals Office. To date, nothing has been done to help Marci.

Here is the letter I wrote. An excerpt:

I am urging you to investigate this situation. A great injustice is being done. Jeff York is charged with the responsibility of defending Marci and advocating for her and instead he has gone out of his way to sabotage her case. A few months ago I filed an ARDC complaint against him which went nowhere. Dr. Corcoran is charged with her treatment, but has knowingly lied about her mental status to keep her locked up (at a cost to taxpayers, incidentally, of $250,000 per year) and is supervising and most likely ordering her cruel and inhumane treatment. Why would they do this if there were not an ulterior motive? And why is Judge Bakalis not replacing York despite repeated requests even after having seen his inadequacy in representing Marci?

Marci is struggling in the facility where shes currently being held, but shes trying to stay positive that she still has some chance to be released in six months. She would very much welcome letters of support. She is also seeking an attorney to file civil litigation in one or all of the following areas: civil rights violations, medical malpractice, legal malpractice and/or product liability. If you can help or have suggestions of someone who can, please email me at cindyperlin@gmail.c...

Coinbase Addresses Recent Issues and Future Payment Support Plans "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Coinbase is a very hot company as of right now. That is not always for the right reasons either, unfortunately. The company recently provided a product update to explain what the future holds for this firm as of right now.

Addressing Recent Coinbase Issues and Reports

The year 2018 has been rather eventful for Coinbase in many different ways. Perhaps the biggest issue is how the company got caught up in some recent Visa-related drama. Hundreds of users complained about issues using their payment cards. Some even got charged twice or more time for specific transactions, which is unacceptable. It seems Visa will continue to crack down on all cryptocurrency activity for quite some time to come.

None of these issues were the result of Coinbase doing anything wrong either. Instead, the issue was completely with Visa and WorldPay. Both companies are resolving the problems as we speak. Most duplicate transactions have been reversed without problems.  Some lingering issues still need to be resolved in this regard. Coinbase cant do anything about this issue as of right now, yet they will keep an eye on things.

There are also some concerns regarding the cash advance fees associated with Coinbase transactions. More specifically, some users suffer from an extra fee when buying cryptocurrency through this exchange. This is, once again, not Coinbases fault. They are working with their card processing company to iron out these problems. This process will take some time, though, and some banks will continue to charge them regardless.

All users can do is report such incidents to their banks. It is then up to the financial institution to explain the situation or address it accordingly. Buying cryptocurrencies with a payment card will always be a bit cumbersome. It is convenient, but the current fees make it unfavorable. Some users may be entitled to a fee reimbursement, although your individual mileage may vary in this regard.

PayPal Support Will be Removed Temporarily

There is also an update regarding PayPal support. A l...

Yellowstone supervolcano shaken by a swarm of over 200 earthquakes since February 8th is Yellowstone just being Yellowstone USGS "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Credit USGS
According to geophysicists with the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the past fortnight has seen Yellowstone supervolcano shaken by a swarm of over 200 earthquakes since February 8, accompanied by innumerable smaller tremors too faint to accurately record.
Despite how alarming this cavalcade of seismic activity might seem considering its unnerving proximity to one of natures most potentially devastating powder kegs scientists say we shouldnt be panicked.
Researchers Mike Poland and Jamie Farrell from Yellowstone Volcano Observatory explain in a USGS update that swarms like this account for more than half of the seismic activity at Yellowstone, and theyve never actually been known to contribute to volcanic activity at the caldera.
This is what Yellowstone does; this is Yellowstone being Yellowstone, Poland told Live Science.
It experiences swarms all the time.
Case in point: last June, the region experienced an epic earthquake swarm that was 10 times more turbulent, breaking Yellowstone records on its way to ultimately producing some 2,400 quakes by September.
Ordinarily, the caldera sees around 1,500-2,000 earthquakes per year, with about half taking place during swarms.
In the current swarm, the largest earthquake reached a magnitude of 2.9 on the Richter scale, whereas last years quakes topped out at a magnitude of 4.4.
These events might not produce fiery eruptions from Yellowstones expansive magma chambers, but theyre still a valuable opportunity for scientists to study the behaviour of the caldera system.
The latest outbreak took place in an area around 13 kilometres (8 miles) north-east of West Yellowstone, Montana, close to last years 2,400-strong swarm.
The researchers say its possible the new flare-up is actually a continuation of the 2017 incident.
That might seem like a long stretch, but on the vast timescale over which seismic activity plays out, its actually just a blip and the researchers even say both the 2017 and 2018 swarms may actually hark back to a quake from the previous century.
One of the potential explanations for why this area is so swarmy is that the whole crust in the area is still adjusting to the big earthquake in 1959, Poland told Live Science.
That episode, which induced the surrounding landscape to plummet by several metres and provoked seiches (standing waves) on Hebgen Lake for 12 hours, was th...

Florida Shooting Survivor EXPOSED? My Fathers A Retired FBI Agent "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Florida school shooting survivor and now pseudo famous anti-gun activist, David Hogg has been exposed.  His father was in the FBI, and he appears to have been coached on his anti-gun and anti-Trump rhetoric.

Anyone who has been following the news could tell about the scandal involving the FBI, who in collusion with the Obama Administration and Clinton campaign, set out to push the false verification of the junk Steele Dossier. It has also been widely reported that the FBI received tips well in advance of the Florida school shooting and decided, for whatever reason, not to act.

Hogg is now so media obsessed and determined to continue the propaganda charade that he snubbed an invitation to meet with President Donald Trump this Wednesday in favor of appearing on a televised town hall with CNNs Jake Tapper.

Few have seen this type of rapid media play before, and when they have it has come from well-trained political operatives and MSM commentators. Immediately, these students-turned-activists threw up some red flags. In what was initially as an incredibly odd move for a high school student, Hogg vehemently defended the FBI and placed the blame squarely on the Presidents shoulders. before admitting that his father was in the FBI. ...

One Poem by Emily Hunt "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Daniel Arsham, Future Relic 05 (2016) (image courtesy the artist)

 

LANDLINE

 

A phone was screwed
to the wall by the shower.

 

A clear one, with blue cords
so everything was visible.

 

The tangled system
of a single, labeled thing.

 

I thought: rows of them
coded, packed, stacks for sale.

 

Phones like sleeping backs in the dark.
How each current would twist

 

through the body of its device
snaking, tied to the others,

 

a fine line to the outlet
and live hot inside the wires.

 

*

 

When I used it,
spine against the tile,

 

splayed limbs,
a skating eye on the grout,

 

he would listen in
from the floor below,

 

a smooth receiver to his ear
in a room he called his office,

 

where he browsed the internet
for hours in the sun.

 

He would at times
bark into the phone,

 

like a dog, or just breathe.
He could pick it up,

 

my voice, cut it off.
Could then refer to it, enraged,

 

or ignore it, like dry clay.
Feral in this way

 

he could not be disturbed
raking the morning

 

or the late afternoon,
taking, resting,

 

boiling, a human in his way.

 

*

 

Warm soil, I would call
to get the endless drone

 

of the busy signal.
Concrete, pavement,

 

dandelions and tires I would trace
the rough curve of the school

 

making my way
to the spare room phone

 

extra slow to join
each mild shadow

 

as if to sidestep...

Millions of Olympics viewers test positive for lactose reveals IOC "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Millions of people have admitted to using hot milky beverages in order to help them stay awake while watching the Winter Olympics, confirmed the IOC. Drinks like Horlicks, Ovaltine and Cocoa are routinely used by armchair viewers to help them relax in front of the TV, with 1 in 4 admitting they also had a biscuit.

Although perfectly legal in the UK, the use of liquids from an animals mammary gland to create a comforting evening drink is considered unnecessary and if taken in large doses could actually keep you up at night.  Doctors say the best thing to do after imbibing in a hot milky beverage is to retire to bed early and not stay up trying to watch the Olympics.

There is no need for a hot milky drink to help you relax.most people will fall asleep naturally, especially if the Winter Olympics is on.  Unless of course you happened to be watching that French figure skater.youll definitely be up all night then.I know I was.

Ripple Expands its List of Partners With Five More "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Not many other blockchain companies can boast new partners on a weekly basis. Ripple is one that can and, love it or hate it, the San Francisco based global payments provider has added to that list of over a hundred with five more this week.

In addition to banks in Brazil and India, Singaporean and Canadian money transfer service providers have also joined ranks with Ripple. According to reports Brazilian Bank Ita Unibanco and remittance provider BeeTech have joined RippleNet in order to facilitate faster and cheaper global funds transfers. Indian bank IndusInd is also onboard alongside Canadian company Zip Remit who are all seeking to benefit from blockchain based financial transactions at a fraction of the cost.

Emerging Markets to Benefit Most

Emerging markets such as Brazil, India and China are home to 85% of the global population with almost 90% of people under 30 residing within those markets. They are a huge draw for companies such as Ripple looking to expand product adoption for xCurrent and RippleNet financial transfer platforms and networks. Over $60 billion was transferred into both India and China in 2017 and Brazil saw $600 million arrive from the US.

Head of business development at Ripple, Patrick Griffin, is confident that blockchain solutions are the way forward to improving the lives of users in emerging markets.

The payments problem is a global problem, but its negative impact disproportionally affects emerging markets. Whether its a teacher in the U.S. sending money home to his family in Brazil or a small business owner in India trying to move money to open up a second store in another country, its imperative that we connect the worlds financial institutions into a payments system that works for their customers, not against them.

Singaporean Partners to Expand RippleNet

Southeast Asias leading digital cross-border money transfer service provider InstaReM is also joining RippleNet to facilitate faster payments to other members of the rapidly growing network. It currently consists of over a hundred banks and other financial institutions providing real-time messaging, clearing and settlement of financial transactions. InstaReMs partnership will allow their corporate and SME customers quick and hassle-free payouts to a number of destinations in the region.

DENIAL CONTROL + ALT + DELETE "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Does the world as we know it need a hard reset? International street artist DENIAL explores this question with his newest collection of visual subversions for Control Alt Delete, his inaugural exhibition at Melbournes Vs. Gallery.

CONTROL+ALT+DELETE examines the current corporate power structures that seek to control our thoughts and lives and, ultimately, our wallets. Through advertising and branding techniques, these companies attempt to alter how we perceive the world in order to encourage consumerism at any cost. The pieces in the exhibition work to alter our perception of these branded images in an effort to interrupt their function and to create a new dialogue about the nature of our capitalistic lives. DENIAL works to develop bold new meanings by taking these household names and iconography and reimagining their structure and purpose to foster alternative modes of thinking. How long can our society coexist with corporate values and aspirations? Is it time to reboot?

The exhibition will feature a broad collection of works across a variety of mediums. From 3-D laser-cut assemblages, to original limited edition screen prints and wood-panel aerosol paintings, DENIAL takes his signature street style and boils it down to ironically consumable artworks that are as visually stunning as they are thought-provoking.

Nietzsche on Depression and the Rehabilitation of Hope "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In this piece for Brain Pickings, Maria Popova discusses Friedrich Nietzsches writings and perspectives on the struggle of depression and the possibility of hope.

Nietzsche writes just before his thirty-seventh birthday:

Gratitude pours forth continually, as if the unexpected had just happened the gratitude of a convalescent for convalescence was unexpected. Gay Science: that signifies the saturnalia of a spirit who has patiently resisted a terrible, long pressure patiently, severely, coldly, without submitting, but also without hope and who is now all at once attacked by hope, the hope for health, and the intoxication of convalescence. Is it any wonder that in the process much that is unreasonable and foolish comes to light, much playful tenderness that is lavished even on problems that have a prickly hide and are not made to be caressed and enticed? This whole book is nothing but a bit of merry-making after long privation and powerlessness, the rejoicing of strength that is returning, of a reawakened faith in a tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, of a sudden sense and anticipation of a future, of impending adventures, of seas that are open again, of goals that are permitted again, believed again.'

Checking Facts About Gun Violence and Mental Illness "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From The New York Times: The recent Florida school shooting has led to widespread conversations about links between gun violence and mental health issues. Journalists Linda Qiu and Justin Bank take a look at some of the facts and falsehoods pertaining to these conversations.

According to various polls, roughly half of Americans either believe that failing to identify people with mental health problems is the primary cause of gun violence or that addressing mental health issues would be a major deterrent.

That conclusion is not shared by experts or widely accepted research.

In an analysis of 235 mass killings, many of which were carried out with firearms, 22 percent of the perpetrators could be considered mentally ill.

Overall, mass shootings by people with serious mental illness represent 1 percent of all gun homicides each year, according to the book Gun Violence and Mental Illness published by the American Psychiatric Association in 2016.

We studied how students performed in technical interviews. Where they went to school didnt matter. "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Photo by Faustin Tuyambaze on Unsplash

interviewing.io is a platform where engineers practice technical interviewing anonymously. If things go well, they can unlock the ability to participate in real, but still anonymous, interviews with top companies like Twitch, Lyft and more.

Earlier this year, we launched an offering specifically for university students. It was intended to help level the playing field right at the start of peoples careers.

The problem

Heres the sad truth: given the state of college recruiting today, if you havent attend one of a very few top schools, your chances of interacting with companies on campus are slim. Its not fair, and it sucks, but university recruiting is still dominated by career fairs. Companies pragmatically choose to visit the same few schools every year. Despite the fact that the career fair is one of the most antiquated, biased forms of recruiting that there is, the format persists. This is likely because there doesnt seem to be a better way to quickly connect with students at scale.

So, despite the increasingly loud conversation about diversity, campus recruiting marches on, and companies keep doing the same thing expecting different results.

In a previous blog post, we explained why companies should stop courting students from the same five schools.

Regardless of how important you think this idea is (for altruistic reasons, perhaps), you may still be skeptical about the value and practicality of broadening the college recruiting effort. You probably concede that its rational to visit top schools, given limited resources. Society is often willing to agree that there are perfectly qualified students coming out of non-top colleges, but they maintain that theyre relatively rare.

We here to show you, with some nifty data from our university platform, that this is simply not true.

To be fair, this isnt the first time weve looked at whether where you went to school matters. In a previous post, we found that taking Udacity and Coursera programming classes mattered way more than where you went to school. And way back in the day, one of our founders figured out that where you went to school didnt matter at allbut that...

Researchers Believe They Have Found the Mayans Ancient Entrance to the Underworld "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Who wouldnt want to explore an ancient entrance to the underworld? ME!

Despite all of the movies and books that tell us not to do things like this, archeologists are and technically have been excavating a secret tunnel in Mexico that had been sealed for centuries. The thing that makes this sealed tunnel all the more mysterious and interesting is that it is said to be an Entrance to The Underworld, bit terrifying? I agree.

It is believed that this passage goes underneath an ancient pyramid called El Castillo (the castle). This was a pyramid built by the Maya over 1,000 years ago. In doing this they hope to reach what is thought to be an underwater cavern that was important to Mayan spirituality, a cenote. Whether or not that is what they will find is something we will have to wonder until the excavation has been carried out.

This entrance was discovered about seven years ago and sits over a fissure that is continuously releasing pent-up geologic carbon dioxide in good sized quantities. The team led by the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) says actually says that stories of ritualistic sacrifice seem to have been carried out in the cave according to no longer present scribes. After researching and working to better understand this cave and what it does researchers found that the hours before dawn are the riskiest time to enter the cave, at night concentrations, were so high that they would easily kill humans within minutes.

These emissions are thought to reflect the Hadean breath and/or the breath of the hellhound Kerberos guarding the entrance to hell. The origin of the geogenic CO2 is the still active seismic structure that crosses the old town of ancient Hierapolis as part of the Babadag fracture zone. Our measurements confirm the presence of geogenic CO2 in concentrations that explain ancient stories of killed bulls, rams, and songbirds during religious ceremonies. They also strongly corroborate that at least in the case of Hierapolis, ancient writers like Strabo or Plinius described a mystic phenomenon very exactly without much exaggeration. Two thousand years ago, only supernatural forces could explain these phenomena from Hadean depths whereas nowadays, modern techniques hint to the well-known phenomenon of geogenic CO2 degassing having mantle components with relatively higher helium and radon concentrations.

What do you think will come of this excavation and do you think they will find what they are looking for? I sure hope they do. This is risky business and one small mistake could cost lives.

Lisk Rebrands in Berlin but Fails to Lift Price "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A relaunch or rebrand usually does wonders for a cryptocurrency or blockchain project. The latest to revamp their look, website, and products is Berlin based Lisk which held an event yesterday. The team addressed an audience of over 500 highlighting new products, core updates, and a vision for the future.

The conference started out with a fancy introduction and a keynote by Max Kordek, co-founder and president of the Lisk Foundation. His main focus was on the goal to make blockchain technology open for everyone through the Lisk platform. Christian Vatter from Rlevance then took the stage to explain how the company achieved its new branding and what Lisk actually is.

Rebranded Lisk Products

In its strive to make blockchain technology accessible for everybody Lisk has built a blockchain application platform for users and developers to build upon, one with aspirations to be so successful that any Javascript developer can jump onboard immediately. The ethos being that it is not about the technology but the benefit to the people.

A new series of product names were then introduced by marketing lead Thomas Schouten. These included Lisk Core which remained unchanged, JS and Lisky which are part of the SDK, were rebranded to Lisk Element sand Lisk Commander, and the App became Lisk Hub. Lisk Nano will be discontinued and Lisk Hub will take its place to act as a one-stop dashboard, combining the functionality from the wallet and blockchain explorer. The presentation continued to show the basic workings and setup of the platform for developers. A series of professional videos were shown before a new website was unveiled to be launched this week.

Jacob Kowalewski then introduced the Lisk Academy which aims to educate on blockchain technology and instruct on how to implement blockchain into business. A technical panel explained Lisk Core 1.0.0. which will be a culmination of development efforts over the last few months. Its release will be a major back end milestone ahead of the rollout of the entire Sidechain Development Kit. Finally, Kordek wrapped up summarizing the event and thanking the contributors and audience.

Parents concerned radicalised girls travel south to join the Tory party "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Police, teachers and the parents of three teenagers from Liverpool who have run away from home fear they may have been radicalised and travelled south to join the Conservative party. The three girls were last seen at Watford Gap services, wearing traditional Tory dress of yellow corduroy trousers, tweed jackets and a blue rosette.

The girls headteacher has said it was very unlikely they were radicalised through computers at the school. He did concede a recent spate of industrial action by teachers may have left the girls feeling resentful towards unions and the left, making them a prime target for Tory radicalisation.

Looking back we may have noticed some signs they were becoming right wing, one of the girls parents said, but we thought it was normal for 16-year-old girls to have posters of Boris Johnson on their walls. In hindsight, when she bought a horse, dressed up in fancy dress and started using a pack of hounds to hunt any job-seekers in the area, it was a bit of a clue.

Merseyside Police say they are following a number of leads in connection with the girls disappearance and radicalisation, and have arrested one man for possessing offensive material that can aid a Tory. A spokesman explained: A man in his 30s is in custody after a dawn raid uncovered a copy of The Sun in his property.

We will continue to search for these girls and have officers making their way to the Conservative partys Millbank headquarters, which is where we believe they may be heading. When asked what it is that makes people join the Tory party, the spokesman said it was probably due to fundamentalist Conservative dogma which promises that all party members will receive 72 virgins in paradise, or as its more commonly known, Henley-on-Thames.

But how will you maintain versioning for your web apps?

Story Time!

But now Web Apps have reached a new level. Everything is client side! Hence we can take advantages of the concepts like pre-caching, on demand load, rendering meaningful data at the same time, and so on.

But this can also introduce issues if the user always accesses the cached copy of our web app.

Imagine a SaaS company whose end users are not aware of how to use web apps/next generation web apps/PWAs in the right way.

When it comes to modern web apps like PWAs, you cannot ensure that all your users are using the latest copy of your apps code.

But now assume that after some time, over the next iteration, you added some new functionality to your existing web app and deployed the new piece of code/bundles.

Learn the basics of object-oriented programming with JavaScript (and supercharge your coding "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Learn the basics of object-oriented programming with JavaScript (and supercharge your coding abilities!)

As a moderator of the freeCodeCamp chat rooms, I spend a lot of time with new developers. Boy, are they eager to learn. For a lot us, this can be quite a challenging quality.

In the case of object-oriented programming (OOP), this rings especially true. What the heck is a method and why is it so special? Whats the difference between a method and a property? Why do we even use object-oriented programming, and why is it essential to me as a developer? These are some questions I asked myself while learning OOP, and because youre here, its safe to assume that you have, too.

Using Object-Oriented Programming with JavaScript

Almost everything in JavaScript is an object. Somewhere behind the scenes, every piece of code you write is either written or stored with OOP. Thats one of the reasons why its so important to understand it. If you dont then youll most likely never be able to read other developers code. On top of that, your code will never reach its full potential!

A new object is made in JavaScript by assigning a variable to two curly brackets, like this:

var myObject = {};
// var myObject = new Object();  
// Non recommended version, but it works

Its that simple! You now have an object that can store any type of data you would store in a variable. There are many ways of inserting data into an object, but well stick to the easiest methods right now.

Quick Syntax Lesson

To end a line in JavaScript, when making a variable like this:

var a = 5;

the line ends at the semicolon. When youre making an object, the line will end with a comma, like so:

myObject = {
myProp: 5,
myOtherProp: 10,
}
  • Property/Key: The name of an object variable. An example would be myProp in the above code. || Left hand side of assignments
  • Method : A function inside of an object, only available to that object. This is a type of property.
  • Value: The value of an object variable. An example would be 10, which is the value of myOtherProp. This can be any valid JavaScript datatype.

Only the last property in an object may not use a comma.

Note: You may enclose your properties in single or double quotes. If there is a space in the property name, you must always use quotes. When using JSON...

Cardano Foundation Publishes Research on Threat of Quantum Computing "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies can be threatened in some ways. Quantum computing is perhaps of the biggest concerns as of right now. The Cardano Foundation and think-tank Z/YN recently released their findings on this potential threat to public key cryptography.

Cardano Wants to Become Quantum Computing-Resistant

Quantum computing is the next logical evolution in the world of technology. It allows for must faster calculations and unparalleled processing power. At the same time, this technology also poses concerns for public key cryptography. Most cryptocurrencies and blockchains rely on this type cryptography. As such, addressing potential future problems at an early stage is incredibly important.

Cardano is one of the cryptocurrencies focused on building quantum-resistant solutions. More specifically, the currencys developers will support additional signature schemes in the future. Ensuring their cryptography and blockchain is quantum computing-resistant is a top priority as of right now.  This particular cryptocurrency project prioritizes security and interoperability over anything else.

One of the main reasons Cardano is so appealing is because of its intriguing design. At its core, the currency offers special extensions which allow for adding more signature schemes through a soft fork. With this focus on quantum computing, any major security layer can be added without network disruption. Thus, the only question is if and when quantum computing may become a problem for Cardano.

Conducting Research for Industry Standards

According to the recent study by the Cardano Foundation and think-tank Z/YEN, that is only a matter of time. The study concludes how large-scale quantum computing will effectively break the security of public key cryptography. This will have all kinds of different consequences for solutions built on top of this technology. It extends well beyond cryptocurrencies and blockchain as well. Most online communication services in the world rely on public key...

Is ES6 destroying JavaScript? It feels like were drowning in options. "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I recently wrote an article on ES6 Tips and Tricks which has over 17,000 views and 4,600 claps. One comment was from Bob Munck who said that:

This article makes a very strong argument for avoiding JavaScript like the plague in any usage where you want long-term reliability, maintainability, and modifiability.

His opinion seems to be that if the language is changing as much as it is, its signing its own death sentence.

What ES6, 7, and 8 are adding to JavaScript

The newest specifications add a lot of new features to the language. Destructuring, concise object assignment, and symbols to name a few. There are some good things coming through, but this article aims to highlight the problems.

Why is this a problem?

You want to create a function to receive an object and do some logic upon it. Simple right? But which way are you going to do it?

var data = { a: "print me" };
function method1(data) {
var a = data.a;
console.log(a);
}
function method2(data) {
console.log(data.a);
}
function method3({ a: info }) {
console.log(info);
}
function method4({ a }) {
console.log(a);
}

All these methods give you exactly the same result. This is a very trivial example but it holds true for far more complex functions.

How to decide what to use?

There are 3 main methods for deciding which way to do this:

  • Evaluate and compare the available options.
  • Just use whatever you want to.
  • Have a policy about which to use where.

Each of these has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Evaluate and compare the available options

This seems like an obvious choice, but is it the best one? Doing this every time means that you have to assess the advantages and disadvantages of each method EVERY TIME you write a function. Thats a lot of thinking power that could be used on the problem youre trying to solve.

You and everyone you work with need to know the advantages, disadvantages, and nuances of each method. This doesnt seem too bad, there are only 4, but t...

Fighting Corruption with More Transparent Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Addressing corruption has proven to be a rather problematic venture. Both cryptocurrencies and blockchain may prove to be of great value in this regard. Their lack of anonymity and privacy will help establish a more secure ecosystem moving forward.

Cryptocurrencies Can Address Corruption

Corruption still thrives in this day and age of technological advances. Even though it became easier to hold individuals accountable for their actions, more efforts are needed. Especially when it comes to public financing, new solutions need to be created sooner rather than later. Existing technologies and countermeasures simply do not provide sufficient protection in this regard.

Two specific technologies stand out to make corruption a non-issue in the future. First of all, there are the cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other public cryptocurrencies lack both privacy and anonymity by default. When these currencies are used to exchange value, users can effectively be identified through blockchain analysis. Users converting to and from fiat currency need to verify their identity with an exchange or broker accordingly.

Although these cryptocurrencies do not transmit personal data directly, it is an option worth exploring. Any cryptocurrency can include personal information if the protocol is modified to support such solutions. This can include ID numbers, names, business identification numbers, etc. Additionally, cryptocurrencies offer near-instant transactions and cross-border compatibility unlike any other form of money which exists today.

Making Blockchain Information Even More Transparent

All of this cannot be supported without having the right technology in place. Blockchain technology, which powers all of these currencies, will need to incorporate this additional information. It seems Ethereum may be in a better position to accommodate such changes in the future. It allows for new currencies to be created on top of its infrastructure while still benefit from native technology such as smart contracts and DAOs.

All of this show the current cryptocurrencies are not exactly suited to fight corruption either. Bitcoin is...

Watch 3000 Years of Art, a 1968 Experimental Film That Takes You on a Visual Journey Through 3,000 Years of Fine Art "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Even if we can't name them, we've all seen hundreds of the most important paintings in art history, and even if we can't name it, we've all heard "Classical Gas." 3000 Years of Art, the 1968 experimental film above, officiates an aesthetic union of about 2500 of those much-seen, highly influential images and Mason Williams' instrumental hit song, all in just over three minutes.

Initially released on The Mason Williams Phonograph Record in 1967, the track went on, with the help of 3000 Years of Art, to become "one of the earliest records that used a visual to help promote it on television, which probably qualifies it as one of the earliest music videos." Those words come from Williams himself, who posted the video to his own Youtube channel.




When "Classical Gas" first became a hit, he writes, "I was also the head writer for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour on CBS. I had seen a film titled God Is Dog Spelled Backwards at The Encore, an off beat movie house in L.A. The film was a collection of approximately 2500 classical works of art, mostly paintings, that flashed by in three minutes. Each image lasted only two film frames, or twelve images a second! At the end of the film the viewer was pronounced 'cultural' since they had just covered '3000 years of art in 3 minutes!'"

Contacting the short's creator, a UCLA student by the name of Dan McLaughlin, Williams asked if he could re-cut its imagery to "Classical Gas" for a Smothers Brothers segment. First airing on the show in the summer of 1968 the same year that saw another of the show's writers, a young man by the name of Steve Martin, bring his talents directly to the air the resulting proto-music-video rocketed Williams' song to another sphere of popularity entirely. Not only that, it "opened the door to realizations that the viewer's mind could absorb this intense level of visual input" with its use of kinestasis, the phenomenon whereby a montage of still images creates its own kind of mo...

Six Ruby array methods you need to know "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Arrays are one of the fundamental structures of programming. Being able to quickly manipulate and read data out of them is vital to success in building stuff with computers. Here are six methods you cant do without.

Map/Each

These two methods are very similar. They allow you to step through each item in an array and do something to it.

Check out some code:

array = [1, 2, 3]
effects = array.each{|x| # create record from x }
added = array.map{ |x| x + 2 }

If we read from added, well get [2, 4, 5]. If we read from effects, well still get [1, 2, 3]. Heres the difference between these two: .map will return a new modified array, whereas .each will return the original array.

Side effects in map

If youre using to functional programming, Rubys .map might seem very strange. Look at this example. I have a simple Event class in my project:

# we create an array of records
2.3.0 :025 > array = [e, e2, e3]
=> [#, #, #]
# so far so good
2.3.0 :026 > new_array = array.map{|e| e.name = "a name"; e}
=> [#, #, #]
# uh-oh, that ain't right
2.3.0 :027 > array
=> [#, #, #]

We might expect that we are working with some kind of copy of our records in the array, but we are not. That is all just to say: be careful. You can easily create side effects in your .map functions.

Ok rest easy, that was the hard one. Smooth sailing from here on out.

Select

.select allows you to find an element in an array. You have to give .select a function that returns true or false, so it knows whether or not to keep an array element.

2.3.0 :028 > array = ['hello', 'hi', 'goodbye']
2.3.0 :029 > array.select{|word| word.length > 3}
=> ["hello", "goodbye"]

How to make a splash screen on Android Correctly! "IndyWatch Feed Education"

There is a right way to make a splash screen and a wrong way to make a splash screen. Doing it wrong will lead to the user waiting longer than necessary to start using your app. It will also lead to the screen momentarily flashing white. This is not visually pleasing, especially if your splash screen background isnt white. GitHub links are provided below.

A splash screen done INCORRECTLY.A splash screen done CORRECTLY.

Heres how to make the splash screen the correct way.

  1. Create splash_background.xml file inside the res/drawable folder
  2. Edit res/values/styles.xml
  3. Create java//SplashActivity
  4. Edit manifests/AndroidManifest.xml

Lets go through these steps.

1. Create splash_background.xml inside the res/drawable folder

Adjust the gravity and the dimensions of your bitmap image.

2. Edit res/values/styles.xml

The style we are including is for the splash screen. This is so that the action bar is hidden as the splash screen is activated.

https://medium.com/media/96f8711f9886b3397ac08d7aeafd0a1c/href

3. Create java//SplashActivity

The splash activity will initiate once the application starts, and then will transition to the main activity.

https://medium.com/media/b18c98962fb21f5edbcb3b87e9d4ff6e/href

4. Edit manifests/AndroidManifest.xml

Add your new splash screen activity in the manifest file.

7 key steps to getting your first software engineering job "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I graduated from a web development bootcamp in 2017. I had no experience working as a software engineer or in the tech industry. I started applying for jobs in October and began working full-time as a Front End Engineer in December.

The job hunting process was a short but stressful 5 weeks for me. There were things that I wish I had known, and other things that paid off way more than I expected. To save you a lot of time and stress, Ive distilled what Ive learned into seven key things I did to secure my first job.

1. Make a portfolio of a few standout projects

Ive reviewed the resumes of other bootcamp grads where they only listed one or two partially completed projects. They dont have to be perfect (my glitchy Phaser.js game isnt), but they should show the progress youve made as a software engineer.

This means if you say you know React, you should have at least one React app in your portfolio. If you dont have work experience as a developer, a portfolio of at least three projects is critical. These also shouldnt be tutorialsget creative! The more fun the project is to you, the more work youll put into it. And the more passionate youll sound when you describe it to your interviewer. (Bonus points if you make your own portfolio website too!).

You should also be ready to discuss your projects strengths and weaknesses with an interviewer. Several of my interviewers pulled up my Github and asked me to walk through my code with them. I definitely fumbled the first time this happened, since it had been weeks since I had looked at the code! Preparation is key.

Afterwards, I made sure I could navigate around my projects on Github and could talk about one tough challenge I solved in each project.

2. Prepare for the technical interview

How to get the most out of freeCodeCamp "IndyWatch Feed Education"

If you are currently learning how to code, I would highly recommend you look into freeCodeCamp if you havent already done so.

For those of you who are starting out, I thought I would share my experience so far. It may be useful to you in improving your learning experience with freeCodeCamp.

1. Slow down!

For those of you like me, who see the words challenge on a screen and immediately try to get through it as quickly as possible.

Photo by Daniel Monteiro on Unsplash

Sure, it feels great to get through the challenges as fast as possible.

Sure, in the moment you feel like a true genius.

But the reality is far from that.

I was quite impressed with myself when I finished each of the sections in half of the time they guesstimate it would take an average person. I had some previous experience with HTML and CSS. So I thought that was why I was understanding these concepts and getting through the challenges so quickly.

Although I felt like a genius at the time, I soon got to the basic front end development projects. I realized that everything I learned up until now had not been retained knowledge.

Sure, I was able to complete the sections in half (if not less) of the time they estimated it would take me, but I had learned nothing. The concepts were all familiar, but nothing was truly retained in my head.

My biggest piece of advice to avoid my mistake here would be to slow your roll. Once you complete a challenge, dont move to the next right away. Take an extra five to ten minutes to try to understand what theyre teaching you, and why.

If you had your all-time favorite meal in front of you right now, would you inhale that food without even a chew? Or would you do the sensible thing and savor and enjoy the experience?

You dont want to upset your stomach by eating too quickly. With that being said, why would you want to upset your brain by trying to learn too quickly?

Now that Im onto the JavaScript component of the course, I have begun taking extensive notes at the end of each challenge. I find this has helped me retain the knowledge. For example, like learning math, repetition is everything. Writing out your notes will really help you retain this new knowledge (for most people at least)....

Cardano Price Technical Analysis ADA/USD Accelerates Decline "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ADA price failed to correct higher and it declined below the $0.3500 support level against the US Dollar (tethered).
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.3650 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD pair (data feed via Bittrex).
  • The pair is currently trading below the $0.3500 level and it could decline further in the near term.

Cardano price extended its decline against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ADA/USD is now in a bearish zone and it may continue to decline towards $0.3000.

Cardano Price Resistance

In the last analysis, we discussed the chances of further declines below $0.3600 in ADA price against the US Dollar. The price failed to move above the $0.4000 resistance and started a downside move. It declined sharply and broke the $0.3600 and $0.3500 support levels. There was a lot of pressure on ADA, which pushed its price below the $0.3400 level as well.

A low was formed near $0.3300 from where the price is currently attempting an upside correction. It tested the 23.6 Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3872 high to $0.3300 low. However, a recovery in ADA wont be easy as the price is now well below $0.3500. On the upside, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $0.3650 on the hourly chart of the ADA/USD. The trend line resistance is very important since it is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.3872 high to $0.3300 low. As long as the price is below the $0.3500 and $0.3600 levels, it remains at a risk of more declines.

Cardano Price Technical Analysis ADA USD

On the downside, the recent low of $0.3300 is a decent support. A break and close below $0.3300 could push the price towards the $0.3000 level.

Hourly MACD The MACD for ADA/USD is showing a low of bearish signs.

Hourly RSI The RSI for ADA/USD is now near the oversold levels.

Amazing Image Shows Bright Light and Sparks That Occur at Conception "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A colleague was nice enough to pass along one of those stories that will just light up your day.

 In your minds eye, have you ever thought/pictured the precise moment when human life begins, that instant when sperm meets ovum? We see representations, but that falls short.

Well, what if someone told you human life begins (as Sarah Knapton, science editor for the Daily Telegraph, put it) as An explosion of tiny sparks [which] erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception. The romantic in you might say, What I always suspected.

You can see this remarkable display of bright flashes of lightthis fireworks here.

What explains this phenomenon which scientists had previously seen in animals and now for first time in humans?

According to Knapton

The bright flash occurs because when sperm enters and egg it triggers calcium to increase which releases zinc from the egg. As the zinc shoots out, it binds to small molecules which emit a fluorescence which can be picked up by camera microscopes.

These fluorescence microscopy studies establish that the zinc spark occurs in human egg biology, and that can be observed outside of the cell, said Professor Tom OHalloran, a co-senior author and director of Northwestern Universitys Chemistry of Life Processes Institute, of a study that appeared in Scientific Reports.

A companion paper was published, also in Scientific Reports, Knapton explains. In that experiment

a zinc spark is shown at the precise time a sperm enters a mouse egg.

This discovery was made by Zhang, a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern. Little is known about the events that occur at the time of fertilization, because it is difficult to capture the precise time of sperm entry.

Venezuela Named Cheapest Country to Mine Crypto as El Petro is Launched "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

As president, Nicolas Maduro rolls out the El Petro ICO, Venezuela is named the cheapest country in the world to mine Bitcoin. But is it also the most expensive place to live?

The manual for the first 82.4 million units of the Venezuelan cryptocurrency, El Petro was made available for download in multiple languages yesterday to much international criticism. The digital currency, which is linked to the countries oil reserves, has been derided as a workaround of the economic sanctions created to allow those in power to increase their wealth in the crypto market.

President Maduro announced that the valuation of the Petros 100 million tokens would be just over $6 billion and that the sale would bring a new economic era to the nation.

Cheapest Mining In The World

Meanwhile, the country has been named the cheapest location in the world to mine cryptocurrency. According to the company Elite Fixtures which carried out a study on the cost of mining around the world Venezuela is more than 100% cheaper then its near neighbor Trinidad and Tobago.

According to the company they took statistics supplied by countries and agencies around the world on electricity costs and compared the use on three of the most popular mining rig configurations. The cost in Venezuela was $531 followed by Trinidad at $1,190 with South Korea coming in at $26,170 per coin, the most expensive in the world.

China, Russia, and The United States present similar costs. China being slightly cheaper at $3,965 while both Russia and the US are around $4,700.

But Also The Highest Cost Of Living

While making money mining Bitcoin in the Latin American country may be very profitable due to its subsidized electricity doing almost anything else is very expensive. Inflation over recent years in Venezuela has been as high as 800% by some estimates making the Bolivar essentially worthless as the government prints more and more of the currency.

The oil-rich country carries a 14% budget deficit of its GDP and a 60 trillion debt after decades of mismanagement by corrupt or just truly wrong-minded leadership. Though the official exchange rate is about 6.3 Bolivar per US Dollar the black market rate is multitudes higher, perhaps as high as 100 times that.

Factor in the scarcity of everything from food to medicine, as well as a crime rate that has soared over the last three years and its clear that the cost of living in the country would offset the advantage of cheap electricity. Given the dire state of the economy as well as the governments oblique regulatory stance on B...

Mr. Ed's Intel Update via Email - School Shooting "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"




INTEL Update (Real News) via email - "ATTENTION: Protesting Students in the Florida Shooting " 2/20/18

ATTENTION: Protesting Students in the Florida Shooting

Comments by: Mr.Ed @ Rumor Mill News

This is about all the shootings we see all the time at night clubs...schools...casinos and other public places.

What you are seeing is a manifestation of a battle between good and bad...dark and light...right and left.

Trump has disturbed the hornets nest and what you are witnessing is a reaction from 'draining the swamp'.

These acts are False Flags and created by the CIA using an old technology of Mind Control called M K Ultra.

This latest shooting in Florida is no different from the Oklahoma bombing where a crazy man (Timothy McVeigh) was the fall guy for what the CIA did.

The building that was destroyed in Oklahoma is no different than the 9/11 as far as it was done by the same group of people.

The killing of JFK was the same group.

They blame it on somebody crazy and he gets killed on the spot or after a death penalty.

You can pick any False Flag event you want and they are all done by the same group: Waco...Ruby Ridge...Trade Center Bombing...9/11...JFK...Pearl Harbor...Las Vegas Shooting...Boston Marathon...Sandy Hook...all the school shootings...oil spill in the gulf...earth quake in Haiti...fires in Cali...flood in Dallas...hurricanes Andrew...Katrina...Hugo...and MANY more...Fukushima...Jet crash in Russia last week.

I mean the list just keeps going on and on...I am sure I am missing tons more obvious false flag events and yet nobody can see the elephant in the room.

It is always the same group behind these events.


It always has been and still is.

In this case I am talking about a program used by the CIA which is a branch / arm of the dark forces behind all of this terror.

You can call them whatever you like...but it is all the same: Deep State...Cabal...Illuminati...Satanic...Dark...Left...Democrat...Elite...and more.

The M K Ultra Program will abduct a victim and 'chip them' with a micro chip in the brain so they can be activated remotely by CIA operatives for these False Flag Shooting Events.

Citizen Journalist Blows Truth About Parkland Shooting Wide Open "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"



Citizen journalist Jenny Moonstone has interviewed Parkland survivors who reveal that the Secret Service held drills at the the school prior to the shooting that left 17 dead. 

According to Moonstone, multiple witnesses describe a 2nd shooter, FBI raids in town on Thursday night, and Secret Service drills last month at the school all of which challenge the official narrative. Might this hold answers as to why the FBI failed to do anything about Nikolas Cruz?

While the massed Wagons of the Mainstream media waited patiently in Parkland Florida to be told what official story to report, the brave young you-tuber Jenny Moonstone was out getting the scoop.

In this video, she runs through what everyone has been saying in the town:

Jenny Moonstone happens to be an alternative you-tuber who found herself on the inside of the story when massacre came to her town of Parkland, Florida.

She got her phone out on Friday morning and shot this footage as she ran through everything she had learned.

She talks of multiple reports of second shooters, and this has been corroborated by people coming forward this weekend, like Alexa Miednik.

Alexa says she was talking to Nikolas Cruz as they left the school, she actually joked with him that she would have thought he would be behind something like this, to which Cruz is supposed to have reacted dumbfounded: and then heard MORE shots afterwards!

And shes not the only student reporting this, see video HERE.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP/USD Declines Below $1.00 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price struggled to gain momentum above $1.15 and declined sharply against the US dollar.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $1.02 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from SimpleFx).
  • The pair is currently trading well below the $1.00 support and it remains at a risk of more declines.

Ripple price is under a lot of bearish pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD could decline further towards $0.9000 as long as it is below $1.00.

Ripple Price Decline

There was no increase in buying sentiment for Ripple price above the $1.10 level against the US Dollar. The price failed to gain momentum and declined below the $1.05 and $1.00 support levels. It even broke the $0.98 support and is currently well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. The recent was formed near $0.9268 from where an upside correction was initiated.

XRP moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.0811 high to $0.9268 low. However, the upside move was contained by the $0.9850 level. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.0811 high to $0.9268 low also acted as a resistance. To the topside, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with current resistance at $1.02 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. Another important resistance is at $1.00 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1.0811 high to $0.9268 low.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

Therefore, there are many resistances on the upside near the $1.00 and $1.02 levels. On the downside, the price may find support near $0.9500, but overall it remains at a risk of more declines.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for XRP/USD is placed strongly in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for XRP/USD is moving further lower in the oversold levels.

Free Yourself from Narcissistic Behavior with This 7-Step Pattern "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

It has been estimated that approximately 6.2% of American adults would meet the diagnostic criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Characterized by arrogance, grandiosity, a need for admiration and a heightened sense of entitlement, narcissists are often the people that we identify as a toxic influence in our lives. They may be our friends, family, neighbors, co-workers or even our partners.

While it is a commonly accepted belief that narcissists dont want to change, what about those that go against the stereotype and seek a better life? Weve all seen it on television and in the movies the evil person who decides that they want to turn their life around and redeem their humanity. Is this possible in real life?

While some may argue that NPD and other similar diagnostic labels are a more permanent condition, identifying the unavoidable way that our minds work, others argue that, NPD is merely a reflection of how we react to the world around us and therefore, like other negative coping mechanisms, can be corrected with the right course of treatment. As Dr. Craig Malkin, a clinical psychologist and lecturer at Harvard Medical School explains, I believe that rather than simply being who we are, our personalities are also patterns of interaction. That is, personality, whether disordered or no, has as much to do with how (and with whom) we interact as it does with our genes and wired-in temperament.

The process is likely going to be uncomfortable, pushing you out of your regular pattern of thinking, requiring a more conscious approach to life. For many, the very idea of psychotherapy and working on changing the way they think is daunting or unappealing, however, for the select few that are truly motivated to create change, the opportunity is available. Experts in the field have dedicated their time and energy to determine the best approaches for the treatment of such conditions.

One such expert, Elinor Greenberg, Ph.D., CGP, is internationally known, specializing in the diagnostic and treatment of Borderline, Narcissistic and Schizoid adaptations. She has travelled all over the world, sharing her knowledge with psychotherapists interested in learning her methods, including traveling to the US, Mexico, England, Wales, Norway and Sweden. Her 7-step treatment approach for NPD has gained attention for its effectiveness, providing hope to those who are dealing with the disorder around the world.

This Type of Woman Is More Depressed Than Their Male Counterparts "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The quest for womens equality is a battle that many have fought long and hard to obtain. Once expected to stay at home to care for the home and raise the children, with no option to earn their own income, today we can see powerful examples of the modern woman dominating the boardrooms, leading Fortune 500 companies and making their mark in corporate America.

Unfortunately, while women have fought through some incredible odds on this journey, a study from the American Sociological Association highlights a new concern for women taking on positions of authority in their careers.

The study group was comprised of 2800 participants, including 1500 women and 1300 men. From 1993 until 2004, the studys researchers tracked the careers of the participants including their job titles and any changes in position. At the same time, they also watched for any signs of depression, comparing the two in order to determine whether there were any patterns and connections to be observed between the changes in their career and their mental state.

Consideration was given to the fact that women statistically suffer from depression at a higher rate than their male counterparts. However, even with that information factored into the equation, the conclusion was clear. Women in positions of authority in the workplace were significantly more likely to suffer from depression.

Women with job authority the ability to hire, fire, and influence pay have significantly more symptoms of depression than women without this power. In contrast, men with job authority have fewer symptoms of depression than men without such power, explained Tetyana Pudrovska, lea...

Cryptocurrencies NEO And Stellar Added To eToro Platform Newsbtc "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Global trading and investment platform eToro has announced that NEO and Stellar (XLM) are the latest cryptocurrencies to be added to the site. As of Monday, 19th February, 2018, eToros nine million users will be able to trade an impressive total of nine cryptos.

The decision to introduce these two exciting altcoins is a response to the growing demand for diversification in this increasingly popular asset class, according to Yoni Assia, eToros Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer.

If 2017 was the year of Bitcoin, 2018 will be the year of altcoins, he said, pointing out that the global market capitalisation for all cryptos exceeded 500 billion last year. As investors seek new opportunities and diversification within their portfolios, attention will shift away from the mainstream cryptos towards new challengers in the market.

Were constantly identifying and assessing new concepts as they emerge and are committed to bringing the best crypto assets onto our platform for our users to invest in. Were excited to have NEO and Stellar now available and we look forward to seeing how the market develops in 2018 following a very successful 2017 for the crypto community.

Introducing NEO And Stellar

China-based project NEO, founded by Da Hongfei (and originally launched in 2014 as AntShares), is a blockchain platform and also a crypto that enables the development of both digital assets and smart contracts. Users are able to issue and trade assets on the platform, and NEO uses tokens to prove ownership of asset and not the asset itself. This therefore takes into account all of the legal complications and obligations that may come with the transfer of shares, equity and assets.

And Stellar, founded by Jed McCaleb and Joyce Kim in 2014, is an open-source protocol for value exchange, which is supported by the nonprofit Stellar Development Foundation (SDF). As a public infrastructure for money it allows increased interoperability between diverse financial systems and currencies. Further, it is a technology that enables money to flow directly from people, companies and financial institutions as simply as electronic mail. As such, this makes for better access for individuals, while lowering costs for banks, and boosting revenue for businesses.

The development of blockchain technology is bringing new innovations to the market almost daily, said Mr McCaleb, Co-Founder of SDF. Platforms such as eToro are an essential component in bringing together innovative projects and early-adopters. We are delighted to be working with a leading crypto platform to make Stellar ava...

Overmedicating Our Elders "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

According to a survey conducted by Consumer Reports,1 you may be in the minority if you don't regularly take a prescription drug. In a sample of nearly 2,000 American adults, more than half regularly took prescription medications and the average adult took four. The total number of prescriptions filled by Americans increased by 85 percent from 1997 to 2016. However, the total population increased by only 21 percent during that same period.

Every age group is at risk for being diagnosed with a condition they may not actually have, and subsequently being prescribed medications they do not need. Many choose an over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription medication to feel better. You might assume that OTC drugs are safe, but availability does not equate to being risk-free. Some current OTC medications were once available by prescription only.

In an increasingly litigiousness environment, and under a very real fear of medical malpractice lawsuits, physicians often feel pressured to prescribe medications designed to relieve symptoms, but not seek the foundational cause of your condition. When physicians do not follow published standards of care and instead seek to provide individualized care to their patients, they may be publicly criticized by colleagues and potentially rebuked by their professional organization.

One group of individuals who are at high risk of receiving prescription medications for diseases or illnesses they do not actually have are nursing home residents who suffer from dementia.2

Alzheimers disease Changes Cognition and Behavior

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and irreversible neurological disorder that slowly destroys memory and cognitive functioning. Eventually, the individual is unable to carry out even some of the simplest tasks and cannot remember people in their lives who were once very important. Although estimates vary, many experts suggest that more than 5 million Americans may have Alzheimer's disease3 and it is currently ranked as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.

86 Percent of Teens Are Loaded With Gender-Bending Chemicals "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Bisphenol-A (BPA) was first created by a Russian chemist in 1891, but wasn't used in the manufacture of products until the 1950s when it was used to produce resilient and often transparent plastics. Today, BPA is found in countless personal care products, water bottles, cashier receipts and the lining of canned goods.

Although research shows BPA is detrimental to human health, the market was valued at over $13 billion in 2013 and expected to reach $20 billion in 2020.1 Unfortunately, as the demand for BPA-free products is rising, substitute chemicals that are nearly identical to BPA are being substituted and thought to produce the same negative human health effects.

Recently, a study from the University of Exeter determined the extent to which BPA is found in the human population.2 The study was a collaborative research project between community-based resources (high school students) and the University of Exeter researchers.

BPA Found in Nearly 90 Percent of Teens

The study tested the urine and blood of 94 students in Great Britain and found 86 percent of the teenagers had hormone-disrupting contaminants in their system. Although currently legal in Europe, the European Chemicals Agency3 reclassified BPA in 2017 as a substance of "very high concern" as it has probable serious effects on human health.4

The research project was carried out in a real-world setting to provide students with the experience of scientific research. The students designed, participated in and published the study, including how changes in their lifestyle or diet may have an impact on the amount of BPA in their bodies.5

The results support several previous studies, including one by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) that found detectable levels of BPA in 93 percent of over 2,500 individual urine samples.6 This data is representative of exposure throughout the U.S., whereas the current study is a small sample of adolescent students from Great Britain.

New Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Heart and Brain Tumors "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Mounting evidence suggests electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation from cellphones can trigger abnormal cell growth and cancer.1,2 As early as 2011, the evidence was strong enough for the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, to declare cellphones a Group 2B possible carcinogen.3 Two government-funded studies4 bring renewed attention to this link.5,6,7,8

The $25 million research conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) an interagency research program started by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 1978 and now housed at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) includes two separate studies: one on mice and one on rats. The studies, in which 3,000 animals were exposed to the type of radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, are said to be the most extensive to date.

Cellphone Radiation Linked to Brain and Heart Tumors in Male Rats

The researchers found male rats were more likely to develop heart tumors, while female rats and newborns exposed to high levels of radiation during pregnancy and lactation were more likely to have low body weight. DNA damage and damage to heart tissue was also observed in both male and female rats, but not mice.

Other types of tumors did occur in both types of animals, though, including brain, prostate, liver and pancreatic tumors. According to the researchers, if these results can be confirmed, then cellphone radiation may indeed be a weak carcinogen.

The animals in these studies were exposed to cellphone radiation for nine hours a day for two years (basically the full life span of a rat). According to the researchers, this...

The Saturn Matrix - (Must Watch Presentation by David Icke) - Commentary by AscensionWithEarth.Com "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Image Credit: fymaaa.blogspot




February 21, 2018

One of the best presentations ever created by David Icke, exposing the Saturn and Moon matrix that has mind controlled humanity for thousands if not millions of years.  The beings who are associated with the Saturn Councils, gods, and secret groups from earth have been indoctrinating humanity on a conscious and subconscious level for generations.  

Some of these groups are now coming to the forefront acting as benevolent races, which some are, but these groups and beings have also been controlled and still are by the Saturn Councils/Elohim/False Gods for untold millennia. 

As David Icke has said before, those in power create the problem, which creates a reaction from the chaos, and the same malevolent beings then present a solution.  Some of these "Solutions" are now coming to the forefront at this amazing time of humanities Ascension/Spiritual Awakening.  See the mind matrix for what it is and remember your own true powers come from within you.  

Those who are awake will connect many dots after viewing this presentation.  Those who protest that the Gods/Elohim/Councils/Guardians from Saturn are trustworthy and benevolent should watch this research presentation from David Icke.  It may change your perspective and shatter your belief system.  Highly recommended to watch!

Some of these Saturn controlled groups are now preparing for evacuation from the current time-line of earth.  They are creating temporal time anomalies that are created in a void outside of humanities current "ascension" time-line.  These Saturn groups will enter these time voids and move to another time line as they believe they cannot survive the earth/sun/humanity spiritual frequency shift.

The end of the Saturn matrix is coming but please be aware that ther...

This Is Your Brain On A Breakup, According To Science "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

When the love of your life calls a quits it is only natural to feel blindsided. Time slows down and you feel as though someone has kicked you in the stomach. No, that feeling is not your heart shattering into a million pieces but rather your bodys automatic response to conflicting neural systems simultaneously. You are essential, falling in love all over again but in reverse.

According to basic neuroscience, a breakup throws your brain into an obsessive overdrive. Remember the infatuation that you felt when you first met? Every little thing reminds you of your lost love and triggers neurons inside of the caudate nucleus and ventral tegmental. These are the same responses in the brain that occur when cocaine or nicotine are introduced. Simply put, you are addicted!

Dr. Lucy Brown notes that [romantic rejection] is a life-changing thing, and involves systems that are at the same level as feeling hungry or thirsty.

Activating the reward neurons circulates repetitive floods of dopamine; inevitably activating pathways inside the brain that form a craving for more. That thirst gives you incentive and persuades you to try out other behaviors that provide the same rewards. Essentially, the reward system will motivate you to do something foolish, like drunk text your ex, or initiating breakup sex.

Several studies have investigated brain activity in those who were deeply devastated by their romantic woes. They witnessed that the regions of the brain that controlled distress and responses to physical pain were significantly more active. Since the brain controls the body, the triggered effect of those systems created a waterfall effect: releasing stress hormones, while suppressing immune functionality. In some extreme cases, the stress can make the heart weaken and bulge, creating a condition called takotsubo cardiomyopathy or broken heart syndrome, which can sometimes lead to death.

Luckily, those sorts of extreme stress responses are infrequent. Nevertheless, the twinge of a romantic rejection can still last a long time. There is a lot of variation from one person to the next, but the painful feelings usually fade away over the course of time. Breakups hurt because they turn on a basic system that gets us to make and maintain meaningful connections with other people. Its a system to try to keep us together, Brown explains. When we have little separations, these feelings get us to work hard to...

Crypto Mining Craze Creates Global GPU Shortage "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The cryptocurrency bull run of 2017 attracted multitudes of investors looking to get rich quick but it also created a mining boom that has resulted in a worldwide shortage of computer components.

Miners Plunder Singapore, Hong Kong For Cheap Rigs

Scores of miners from around the world come to the electronics bazaars in Asia to buy cryptocurrency rigs. Hong Kongs Sham Shui Po and Singapores Sim Lim Square to name just a couple are jammed with people of all ages ordering specialized rigs.

This new demand for mining rigs has revitalized these electronic markets that were dying only a few years ago when shoppers turned online for computers, cameras, and gadgets of all kinds.

Its 30-50 percent cheaper to buy equipment related to crypto-mining in Hong Kong than in Europe, Russian bitcoin miner Dima Popov said. This is because Hong Kong has no sales tax and is in close proximity to Chinese components manufacturers.

Miners are demanding more powerful rigs that can include up to 500 graphics cards each which has created a worldwide shortage of the cards allowing manufacturers and retailers to gauge buyers on the price.

Scarce GPU Cards Selling At Double Price

The market for high-end graphics cards used to work like anything else. You went to the electronics shop, found the card you wanted and paid just about the Manufacturers retail price. Today due to the escalating demand from mining youll most likely find the shelves that once held them bare but if you do actually what your looking for expect to pay a premium.

These high-end graphics cards are the most efficient way to mine cryptocurrency and as hobbyist miners and big players alike scramble to snatch up as many as they can prices go through the roof. Last summer popular GPUs like the AMD Radeon RX 580 sold for about $250 at retail, today the price is more likely to be over $500 and that is if you can find them.

Rigs using, for example, a high-end Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 ti card costing around $1,300 (MSRP) can earn as much as $10 dollars a day at current crypto values. This means that the card may pay for itself in about 4 months.

12 Signs Hes Not In Love Youre Just Convenient "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

We all desire the security and convenience of having a steady partner to share our lives with, but lets face it not everyone is cut out for the romantic lifestyle. It takes a lot of effort to maintain an authentic relationship through dedication, love, and respect. But how can you truly tell if your partner is honestly crazy about you or simply passing their time?

Not every person who utters those mushy words really adores you. Love involves hard work and commitment and not every person is primed for that. Individuals can manipulate you and provide you with the illusion that they are the one. However, in reality, all they want is sex or perhaps they simply would prefer keeping things at an arms length.

Watch out for these signs and get out of that dead-end relationship ASAP:

You Fell Like A Stranger Around Him

You never truly feel that warmth and concern around an individual who has absolutely no interest in you or your affections. Is it just your body that is making him remain in the relationship?

He Spends More Time With His Friends Than You

There should be a healthy balance between time spent with you and his friends. Yet, if he prefers to spend all of his free time with the guys, he clearly pictures you are a convenience rather than a partner in crime.

He Refuses To Open Up Emotionally

Without a pure sensation of love and vulnerability, you simply cannot open up and communicate those hidden emotions. If he isnt sharing his feelings, are his words truly believable?

He Remains In Contact With His Ex

Has he actually moved on from his ex? Or is he still holding on to the love that they shared? Often times, if a man is not 100% certain about you, he will have a backup plan waiting in the wings. You should always feel like a priority in your relationship, not the B-string quarterback.

He Never Seems Concerned About You

He never illustrates a sense of compassion or protection for you. He does not view your needs or wants as important as his own.

He Does Not Invest In The Moment

You know that moment that you worked so hard to arrange? The candlelit dinner or bubble bath? If he does not show enthusiasm in your affection, he does not feel the romance.

He Always Walks Away During An Argument

Your feelings and concerns are not a priority for him. Since you are only a mere distraction for him, he does not value your thoughts and will walk away from any conflict without remorse.

He Only Knows You At...

Altcoin Analysis: NEO, EOS, LTC, IOT and Lumens "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Apart from this LTC explosion, most altcoins especially NEO and EOS are moving lower. Our IOTA ceiling at $2.2 is proving significant and keeping buyers away.

In my view and sticking strictly with price action, our buy views remain valid as long as key support levels repulse bears in the coming sessions.

In that case, I will be watching $130 and $110 in NEO chart and $8.5 at EOS to see if there will be any rejection of lower lows today.

Lets have a look at these charts:

XLM/USD

XLM/USD Technical AnalysisXLM/USD Daily Chart for February 21, 2018

Lumens prices are shifting gear and it seems like sellers are now pushing prices down.

In my view, especially if we consider Fibonacci retracement tool and paste it at last weeks high low then chances are prices might move below $0.35-the 38% retracement level and back towards $0.30 which is about last weeks lows and our main support line.

The reason why we anticipate this bear trend is the failure of prices to close above $0.50-a level which we need if there is a follow through of last weeks buy pressure.

As it is, we shall hold on to our bullish projection as we wait and see at what happens at $0.30 now that bear candlesticks are beginning to band along the lower BB as bears test the middle BB in the daily chart.

Dont Speed Up Labour, WHO Says "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Don't Speed Up Labour, WHO Says

New guidelines released by the World Health Organization (WHO) are warning maternity care providers against trying to speed up labour, unless there is a medical need. Around 140 million births occur globally every year. Most of these birth are uncomplicated, but leading health experts are alarmed and concerned about the increasing rates of medical interventions. Induction, augmentation, forceps or vacuum births and c-section births are among the interventions being performed because of active management of labour. Obviously, women and their care providers want to achieve safe births. The increasing use of medical technology, however, is interfering with womens ability to give birth without assistance. This lack of trust in birth and womens bodies is having a negative impact on womens physical and mental health.

Don't Speed Up Labour, WHO Says

The WHO has recently released the WHO recommendations: intrapartum care for a positive childbirth experience, which bring together new and existing WHO recommendations, to make sure best practice and evidence-based care are at the forefront of maternity care for women around the world. The updated guidelines disregard previous advice, which recommended the speeding up of labour if dilation didnt progress at least 1cm per hour during the first stage. It was believed a prolonged dilation was risky to both mother and baby.

Friedmans Curve

In the mid 1950s, Dr Emanuel Friedman plotted a graph of data taken from 500 first time mothers who gave birth at full term. He calculated the average time a woman took to dilate one centimetre. This graph is known as Friedmans Curve. Despite more recent research that dispelled the myth of 1cm per hour cervical dilation, the graph has been used to underpin maternity care for over 60 years. You can read more about how this graph was designed, and about its flaws, in Friedmans Curve How It...

7 Thoughts to Give You the Courage to Make Change "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

One isnt necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We cant be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest. Maya Angelou

There is a well-known quote by John C. Maxwell that states, Change is inevitable. Growth is optional. In this fast-paced, high energy world that we live in, change is around every corner and there is no avoiding it. How do you recognize it? Unfortunately, its not as easy as one may home. Change is an incredibly individual experience, and its different for everyone.

Here are 7 thoughts that will empower you to embrace the change in your life:

1. Focus on the Positive

Many of us go through life afraid of the very concept of change. If you allow yourself to become overwhelmed by the potential negative outcomes that change may bring, you may struggle to see past this negativity, welcoming it into your life. Instead, focus on the positivity and the ways that this change can bring success and growth into your life.

2. Keep Swinging

Are you a sports fan? Regardless of which sport you may watch there is one thing in common These athletes didnt score goals (make hits, shoot baskets, etc.) perfectly the first time and every time. Instead, they have failed, missed and fallen short many times during their career, and yet they kept swinging ultimately leading them to success.

3. This Too Will Pass

The only thing that is guaranteed in this life is that change is inevitable. While you may be dealing with something challenging right now, rest assured that change will come, and this phase of your life...

LA Has Criminalized Poverty By Making It Illegal To Sleep In Cars and RVs "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Raising rent prices and low wages have resulted in thousands of people across the city of Los Angeles becoming homeless, many of them now living in cars and RVs if they were able to keep it together that well.

According to the most recent counts by the KPCC, there are at least 7,000 people live in their cars in Los Angeles.

Many of these people still maintain jobs and try to live the most fulfilled lives that they can, but they are constantly facing problems from authorities.

It is such a common issue that many churches have opened up their parking lots to people living out of their cars. For example, the New Beginnings Counseling Center opened up their parking lot for a Safe Parking program, which was intended to provide a safe and welcome parking place for people living out of their cars. Unfortunately, under new legislation passed in Los Angeles, programs like this will be illegal, because sleeping in cars and RVs have been entirely outlawed.

Under the new laws, it is illegal to sleep in a car or RV that is parked in a residentially zoned area from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Areas within one block of a park, daycare, or school are entirely off limits. Fines will range anywhere from $25 to $75 which is impossible to pay for most people in these situations.

In 2014, LA lawmakers attempted to pass a similar bill but it was shot down in a federal appeals court. The judge in the case ruled that the legislation was broad enough to cover any driver in Los Angeles who eats food or transports personal belongings in his or her vehicle. Yet it appears to be applied only to the homeless.

The policy is up for debate and reconsideration in July, where homeless advocates are expected to strongly protest for an appeal.

Policies like this can have disastrous consequences, in Canada where laws like this have been implemented for some time, one man racked up over $110,000 worth of fines for essentially being homeless.

Last year, The Mind Unleashed reported that the city of Seattle was planning to set up razor-wire fencing to keep homeless populations from camping. Then,...

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD Nosedives Below $900 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price failed to gain pace above $940 and declined sharply against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $925 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is now trading below the $900 level and it seems like the price may struggle to correct higher.

Ethereum price declined sharply against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may correct a few points from the current levels, but upsides remain capped.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There was no upside break in ETH price above the $940 resistance level against the US Dollar. It resulted in a downside reaction and the price declined sharply below $900. It even moved below the $880 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average. There are many bearish signs visible on the charts below the $900 level. The recent low formed was $848 from where the price started an upside correction.

During the downside move, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support at $925 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $948 high to $848 low. However, the upside move seems to be limited as the price is facing sellers near $895. On the upside, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $948 high to $848 low is likely to act as a resistance. Moreover, there is also a bearish trend line on the same chart with resistance at $900.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

Therefore, it seems like the price may struggle to correct further above $890-900. On the downside, the $840-850 area is a major support in the short term.

Hourly MACD The MACD is placed strongly in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI The RSI is attempting a small recovery from the oversold levels.

Major Support Level $850

Major Resistance Level $900

15 Must-Read Parenting Hacks For The Newborn Days "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

15 Must-Read Parenting Hacks For The Newborn Days

Its not easy staying at home all day with a newborn. Truth is, newborns can be really difficult to please. They sleep a lot but usually only on you. They feed constantly, and then often struggle to poop easily when they need to. Its a good thing they smell so good, or you could be forgiven for thinking this parenting thing is really hard work.

15 Must-Read Parenting Hacks For The Newborn Days

If youre currently in the midst of those early days, then fear not. There are some tips that might help. They certainly wont cure your sleep deprivation, or give you time to wash your hair. These 15 parenting hacks, though, will go some way towards making your life a little easier:

#1: Trim Those Nails During Naptime

Just to be absolutely clear, you should trim them while your baby is napping. You definitely shouldnt be trimming nails while you are sleeping. You shouldnt even be in charge of nail clippers when youre asleep. If youre struggling to summon up the courage to cut those teeny tiny nails, then wait until your baby is fast asleep. He will be blissfully unaware of what youre doing, and it will be a wriggle-free, tear-free doddle.

#2: Baby Vests Have Wide Necks For A Reason

You know the envelope design at the top of baby vests? Well, its not just there to look cute; it has a practical purpose that could save you a lot of trouble. If your baby has let off an almighty poop explosion in his nappy, simply pull the vest down his body. This will save you smearing poop on his head and will make the poopsplosion easier to deal with. Still not pleasant though, sorry.

#3: Everything Is New To Your Baby

You dont need to go out and spend a small fortune on a collection of all-singing, all-dancing, brightly-coloured plastic toys to entertain your baby. Your baby is brand new, so everything in the world is new and exciting to him. But the most entertaining thing in your baby's life right now is you. At birth, your baby can detect light and motion, and make out faces close by. At the age of one month, he can focus on objects a foot...

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 02/21/2018 Waiting for More Buyers "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price sold off from its rising wedge support previously highlighted, signaling that a downtrend may be in order.
  • However, price is still testing support at the rising trend line connecting the lows since the start of the month.
  • Technical indicators are also suggesting that bullish momentum could return.

Bitcoin price is pulling back from its uptrend and is testing support at an area of interest where buy orders might be located.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is still above the longer-term 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the upside. This means that the uptrend is more likely to resume than to reverse. Also, the 100 SMA lines up with the trend line to add to its strength as a floor.

A break below the trend line could still find a floor at the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point, which is still within the area of interest or former resistance zone around $10,000.

Stochastic is on its way down to show that sellers are on top of the game but the oscillator is dipping into oversold territory. Similarly RSI is in the oversold region to signal that sellers are starting to get exhausted. Turning back up could draw bullish pressure back in and allow bitcoin price to bounce.

Market Factors

Higher US bond yields are being pinpointed as the main factor spurring dollar gains across the board. Today the FOMC minutes are up for release and hawkish remarks could spur tightening expectations, which might even be more bullish for the dollar.

Meanwhile, there are a few more naysayers on bitcoin lately, including BOE head Carney who noted that bitcoin has failed as a store of value. On the other hand, there are a few positive reports, such as the one from India where SBI Cards & Payments Services Pvt. Ltd decided not to ban purchasing bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with credit cards.

Netanyahu Faces His Day of Reckoning
by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert

UNITED States of America - It can now be reported that former Department of Justice Counter-Intelligence Chief David Laufman is fully cooperating with U.S. Military tribunals investigating massive ISRAELI Mossad espionage against the American People in direct collusion with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Netanyahu's HIGH Treason U.S. co-conspirators include none other than former U.S. Secretary of State, Nazi neocon Jew Hillary Rodham Clinton, former U.S. President William Jefferson Clinton (Bill Clinton), former U.S. Vice President (neocon Irv Bass stooge) Joseph Biden, Sydney Blumenthal, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, as well as former year 2000 illegal White House occupant election stealer, nation wrecker, Constitution shredder, U.S. Treasury embezzler, AWOL, cocaine snorting, war criminal, homosexual in-the-closet George W. BushFRAUD aka Nazi German spy "Scherff".

Netanyahu, who is now committing war crimes in Syria, has been directly linked to the 9/11 black op attack on the United States and enabling the illegal junior Nazi George W. BushFRAUD war in Iraq that cost the United States thousands of lives of American soldiers and blew out over $7 Trillion in the U.S. Treasury and the genocide of millions of innocent Iraqis.


Netanyahu has also been fingered, along with former Clinton era Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, and Starr's domestic ISRAELI Black Cube trolls, in illegally spying on U.S. Vice President Albert Gore Jr., now year 2000 DULY ELECTED President, in a White House bathroom in 1998.

HIGH Treason Larry Nichols

Starr, who employed alleged CIA Clinton whistleblower Larry Nichols, himself a CIA cowardly troll, conspired with Netanyahu and Nichols to make direct threats against Vice President Gore's daughter in December of 2000 during the period of the presidential election 2000 Bush-CIA P2 electoral coup d'tat that was directed against the American People and Al Gore himself.

Note: The year 2000 electoral coup d'tat marked the beginning of the end of the American Republic as we had previously known. It is now the time to restore it using whatever means are necessary.

Asian Altcoin Trading Roundup: Top Cryptocurrency is OmiseGO "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

FOMO Moments

After a few days in the green crypto markets are correcting today and red is dominating the coin charts. A small selloff has started as traders take profits during the Asian session. Bitcoin has retracted by around 2% to $11,300 and most of the altcoins have followed it down. Only one or two are still showing positive gains over the past 24 hours and OmiseGO is leading the pack in the top 25.

OmiseGO has rebounded strongly from the big dip of February 6 and has recovered over 100% of its losses, falling to $8 and rebounding quickly to over $16.

10 Things Every Mama Thinks When Shes At The Pushing Stage "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

10 Things Every Mama Thinks When She's Pushing

The second stage of labour the pushing stage is exhausting. Its the point of no return and youll feel an overwhelming urge to get it over and done with. For first time mothers, the pushing stage usually lasts between one and two hours. Mostly, it feels more like 80 bazillion hours. It takes every ounce of energy in your body to get that baby out but dont worry, it will be worth it.

10 Things Every Mama Thinks When Shes At The Pushing Stage

Like most women during this stage, as your baby makes her way into the world, youll be really focused. But, focused or not, youll still be having some pretty crazy thoughts, such as:

#1: What Do You Mean, Push Like Im Pooping?

Never in all my life have I encountered a poop like this. For a start, its coming out of the wrong place. And its clearly way bigger even than a giant's poop. And poop doesnt have shoulders or arms or a nose sticking out in weird places. Besides, Ive never pooped in front of an audience before. And Ive definitely never had anybody coaching me with phrases like, Youre doing great, while I was doing it. Can we all just stop pretending this is anything like a poop?

#2: Oh My God, Did I Just Poop?

Great, now I actually have pooped in front of an audience. Well, thats just great. As if being naked and the size of a whale in front of this many people wasnt degrading enough, now this! Stop telling me to push like Im pooping, of course thats going to make me poop. Oh my god, is somebody wiping my bum? Argh. This is the worst day ever. Oh God, did he see? Did he just see me poop myself? I hope he never ever tells me what he saw.

#3: How Big Is This Baby?

This cant be right. Why do the midwives look so calm? Surely they can tell Im about to give birth to the worlds biggest baby. They might want to get the people from the Guinness Book Of World Records here, because this baby is going to be massive. It must be the biggest baby the world has ever seen. It has to be, because I dont see how women would willingly go through this more than once. I must be havi...

Politicians Push New Legislation To Make Saggy Pants Illegal "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In recent decades, cities and states throughout the country have been slowly and silently criminalizing saggy pants. A new bill proposed in the South Carolina will threaten fines for anyone who has pants that hang more than three inches below the waistline, even if their skin is not exposed.

On February 15th, South Carolina lawmakers introduced House Bill 4957, which states that it will be illegal for men or boys to be seen in public wearing his pants more than three inches below the crest of his ileum exposing his skin or undergarments.

Thestate.com pointed out that the lawmakers spelled ilium wrong in the bill, which is the correct spelling of a part of the hip bone. Instead, they typed ileum, which is a part of the small intestine.

If the bill passes it will allow police to write fines that increase with every ticket. The first offense would carry a $25 fine, the second offense would carry a $50 fine and/or up to 3 hours of community service, and a $75 fine and/or 6 hours of community service thereafter.

Wendell Gilliard, one of the main sponsors of the bill, told WCIV, We have to lead by example. The pants now are being worn below the knees.

Seeing someones underwear may seem strange to some, but when you think about it, its really just another piece of cloth, and the person is still covered. The fact that people would think that it something like this can be legislated or outlawed shows that we live in a control freak culture, where threats and force are used to mold society according to the whims of politicians and special interest groups.

While lawmakers insist that jail time will not be imposed on offenders, people have been arrested for sagging pants before.

In 2015, two Tennessee high school students were arrested for indecent exposure for wearing their pants below the waistline.

ICOs Have Raised $2 Billion This Year Mostly from Private Sales

Despite the quality of this years initial crowd offerings being patchy at best, investors appetite for them remains unsated. $2 billion has been raised already, placing 2018 on course to comfortably surpass 2017s total of $5.7 billion. But with the structure of these sales now geared increasingly towards private investors, the public have been left to fight for the scraps. Data shows that 84% of all ICO fundraising this year has come from private and presales.

Private Sales Are Helping the Rich Get Richer

When crowdsales first emerged, they were presented as a democratic means of raising funds and creating a diverse, engaged community. For a while, thats more or less how it played out, but in 2018 the ICO landscape has changed. Last year, private investors still got first dibs on the best crowdsales BAT was notorious for selling out in minutes after a handful of whales took their fill of tokens but this year, the public sale is almost an afterthought. All the action is taking place at the pre- and private stage, leaving slim pickings for the crowds.

How to Ground Your Energy "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Tanaaz; Forever Conscious

Do you feel grounded and rooted in your being?

When you are grounded you are not only connected to Mother Earth but you are also rooted in your being and in the essence of who you are.

Being grounded basically means you are centered in your self and with the physical, mental and emotional space that you are currently in.

Even if you dont necessarily enjoy where you are currently at, when you take a moment to center and root your being to the ground, you instantly give yourself a launching pad to spring from.

Having a launching pad allows you to sink deeper into the earth so you can set your roots in order to branch out and grow taller. Just like a tree, the stronger the roots, the healthier and more lush you can grow.


Often times however, life can bring us certain situations, events or feelings that can knock us off our launching pad. Usually this is temporary and is always to serve a higher purpose.

Sometimes the launching pad needs to be moved, re-shaped, re-defined or completely changed and often this process can leave us feeling confused, stressed, all over the place, chaotic, unmotivated or stuck.

Prepping: Billionaires Brace For The Apocalypse And New World Order "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Mac Slavo; SHTFplan.com

In the event that the entire economy collapses and food and become scarce, billionaires are looking for high-end places to hold out and await the new world order. Many billionaires are now preparing for the apocalypse, and their survival plans dont include anyone outside the global elites.

Peter Thiel, the billionaire behind PayPal, is among those tech giants who see New Zealand as a good place to go in the event of an apocalypse. New Zealand is seen as a particularly safe place for billionaires in the event of an apocalypse. In fact, Thiel has bought a $13.5 million 193-hectare section on the shores of Lake Wanaka, although the only building there at the moment is a barn (that can be seen).


According to the Mirror, plans show he is fitting a panic room in another property he owns in the country and he has been granted New Zealand citizenship in a streamlined process not available to normal (non-global elitists) members of the public. A rough and ready description of the attraction of New Zealand came last year in The New Yorker magazine, with LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman suggesting the country had become shorthand for apocalypse insurance in Silicon Valley.

Is the Yellowstone Supervolcano Close to Erupting? Scientists Detect More Than 200 Earthquakesin Just 10 DAYS After Warning that Magma Below the Surface is Showing Signs of Strain "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Cheyenne Macdonald; Dailymail.com

Latest swarm began Feb 8, about 8mi northeast of West Yellowstone, Montana
As of February 18, the scientists say they've detected more than 200 quakes
Still, experts say the activity is 'relatively weak,' and alert level remains normal


A new swarm of earthquakes has cropped up at the Yellowstone supervolcano, with more than 200 small temblors detected in the last 10 days alone.

According to experts with the US Geological Survey, the latest swarm began on February 8 in a region roughly eight miles northeast of West Yellowstone, Montana and, its increased dramatically in the days since.

Yellowstone is home to several faults, and has a long history of seismic activity. As natural processes occur beneath the surface and stress effects from past events continue to maintain their hold, the area remains a hotbed of seismicity and swarm activity, according to USGS

But for now, scientists say theres no reason to worry.

While the earthquakes are likely caused by a combination of processes beneath the surface, the current activity is said to be relatively weak, and the alert level at the supervolcano remains at normal.

Parents Lose Custody of Daughter for Opposing Transgender Medical Treatments "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Parents Lose Custody of Daughter for Opposing Transgender Medical Treatments

Parents of a 17-year-old girl lost custody of their daughter for opposing her wish for transgender medical treatments. Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon of Hamilton County, Ohio has allowed the girl to be taken into the custody of her grandparents who support her medical transition allowing them to make decisions that will further along her physical transition to the opposite sex. According to CNN, Hendon ordered that the familys names not be released.

The parents reportedly continued to call their daughter by her given name, rather than a male name, and refused to consent to hormone treatments that were recommended by her medical team. The girl claimed she became suicidal as a result of her parents refusal to accept that she wanted to transition to a male. We think the grandparents are the ones who have an open mind and will make this sort of decision best for the child, said attorney Paul Hunt, who represents the court-appointed guardian ad litem. The parents have clearly indicated that theyre not open to it. READ MORE

Hezbollah Could Fire 500,000 Rockets at Israel "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Hezbollah Could Fire 500,000 Rockets at Israel

A pro-Hezbollah website boasted that in a year, the Iran-backed terror group could have 500,000 missiles, which, according to an expert, would give Hezbollah the ability to saturate Israel with rockets, making the next war nasty, the Washington Free Beacon reported. An article at the Dahiya website, a Lebanese pro-Hezbollah site, claimed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad recently rejected an Israeli demand, relayed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, to remove the 70,000 Iranian long-range missiles Hezbollah has deployed throughout Syria that are aimed at the Jewish state.

Assad, according to the article, has ordered his army to build and camouflage missile silos to allow Hezbollah to build its rocket arsenal in Syria, aiming to reach 500,000. This would be added to another 150,000 missiles the terror group already has in Lebanon. The article further claimed that Syria and Hezbollah will wage a joint missile campaign against Israel, and that Iranian experts are ready to launch missiles at Israel from every part of Lebanon and Syria.

DAYS OF NOAH: Scientists Create Sheep-Human Hybrids

Researchers have achieved a new kind of chimeric first, producing sheep-human hybrid embryos that could one day represent the future of organ donation by using body parts grown inside unnatural, engineered animals.  With that end goal in mind, scientists have created the first interspecies sheep-human chimera, introducing human stem cells into sheep embryos, resulting in a hybrid creature thats more than 99 percent sheep but also a tiny, little bit like you and me.

Admittedly, the human portion of the embryos created in the experiment before they were destroyed after 28 days is exceedingly small, but the fact it exists at all is what generates considerable controversy in this field of research. The contribution of human cells so far is very small. Its nothing like a pig with a human face or human brain, stem cell biologist Hiro Nakauchi from Stanford University told media at a presentation of the research this week in Austin, Texas, explaining that, by cell count, only about one in 10,000 cells (or less) in the sheep embryos are human.

Winter Survival: How to Navigate in the Snow "IndyWatch Feed Food"

[Editors Note: As winter rages on, it brings to highlight the importance of knowing how to navigate in snow and extreme winter weather. The worst-case scenario in this winter emergency is not knowing the terrain and getting so lost you succumb succumbing to exposure and possibly starvation because you dont have the equipment necessary for survival. Author, Jeremiah Johnson has outlined the essentials on how to navigate in the snow and what equipment you will need to protect yourself from exposure.]

ReadyNutrition Readers, I have written several articles in the past on land navigation fundamentals and the importance of those basics.  Most of those basics still hold true in the Winter Wonderland of the snow and ice: those basics merely need to be modified for the changes of the season.  Once again, as with all things I recommend to you to practice these techniques and familiarize yourself with them prior to something coming upa significant event where you must do it.  Practice does make perfect, and repetition promotes a good follow-through.

That being said, how hard is it to navigate during the winter?  Well, it is tougher in several perspectives.  First, with snow blanketing the landscape, the appearance of the terrain is changed.  Secondly, the landscape is also physically altered: it is a different thing to walk across six inches to several feet of snow.  Right now, where I live, I have almost three feet of snow on the ground.  The winter weather conditions are another item: its a far cry from a summer stroll when you walk into a cold wind that is throwing sleet right into your face in the middle of February.

Know Your Terrain

First, lets address the appearance of the terrain.  This holds true, especially in wilderness or rural areas.  You cant always discern natural landmarks, such as a creek or stream that may very well be on your map.  It may be frozen and covered over with snow.  The same for a lake or pond.  One of your keys to success in this area is to thoroughly know the area you will be in prior to these winter conditions existing.  Another is to pick out landmarks that do not change with the weather and that are clearly visible.  A mountain or high hilltop would be a good example, or a river that does not freeze over, or one with a bridge...

What SegWit Means for Bitcoin, Bitfinex, Lightning Network "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

SegWit Adoption

SegWit adoption has been steadily rising since its release in August 2017, albeit not as quickly as some would like. The problem is that it has to happen piece by piece, with each wallet, exchange, or other service provider rolling out the compatible address itself. Because each organization has both its own type of process as well as its own issues  SegWit adoption has not happened overnight.

This phenomenon explains why the number of SegWit transactions still vary, accounting for between 10 to 20% of total transactions though that percentage is set to increase. The protocol has already garnered some impressive results: As of today, February 20th, SegWit transactions account for almost 14% of the total it peaked a few weeks ago when the transactions made up more than 18% of the total for the first time since activation.

As noted above, that percentage is likely to increase soon with announcements today from global leading exchanges Coinbase and Bitfinex confirming their adoptions of SegWit. Among other notable providers that have unrolled the protocol are: Shapeshift, Ledger wallet, TREZOR, Samourai wallet, and Edge Wallet. Several others have deployed SegWit, too, like the Kraken exchange and the CoinMall marketplace. 

Bitfinex

As for users of SegWit enabled exchanges like Bitfinex, the most noticeable changes in the short term will be, simply, a more efficient transaction process, with decreased transaction fees and improved speed as a result of being able to fit more SegWit transactions in Bitcoin blocks. According to the companys blog post today, the SegWit implementation means Bitfinex users can benefit from lower BTC withdrawal fees (approximately 15%) and improved processing times on transactions across the Bitcoin network.

Bitfinex CEO Paolo Ardoino puts it as follows:

What Happens to Our Brain When We Experience Complete Silence "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Silence is the perfectest herault of joy. I were but little happy if I could say how much. Shakespeare

The word noise comes from a Latin root word meaning, pain, or distress. Noise is something weve become accustomed to, even if we are keenly aware of its ability to cause multiple forms of anguish. Even if we live in decibel hell, we can find moments of silence to reduce our pain. We can intuitively observe that silence, in contrast, reboots our ability to think straight, and offers us a profound feeling of peace.

Silence also allows us to get to know our deepest truths in an undeniable way. It is in complete silence that the thoughts we shelter from others come to the surface.

But what else happens to us when we take a break from the deafening sounds of modern life? Aside from the metaphysical benefits of sitting in silence, there are staggering physiological changes which take place throughout the body: notably in the brain.

Scientists have studied the effects of silence on the brain for several decades, but a few studies are paramount in their importance if we are to understand just how vital silence is for a human being.

Silence Develops New Brain Cells

One study, published in the journal, Brain, Structure, and Function observed mice under the influence of noise and silence. The way the study was structured, silence was expected to be the control (identifiable or observable fact meant to minimize the effects of independent variables in a study). However, mice exposed to two hours of complete silence daily developed a peculiar side effect they started to develop brand new cells in the hippocampus of the brain, the area which is associated with learning new things, retaining memory, and processing emotion. Though new brain cells dont always directly translate into better health, one of the researchers, Imke Kirste, says that these new cells appeared to become functioning neurons.

We saw that silence is really helping the new generated cells to differentiate into neurons and integrate into the system.

Silence Heightens Sensitivity And Empathy

There are many brain areas associated with emotional sensitivity and empathy. Particularly, the right supramarginal gyrus, is an imperative brain region for the development of these traits.  If this brain...

People Are Installing Beehives In Their Living Rooms Heres How it Works "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The future is looking bleak for honeybees that is, unless activists step in and help the bumbling insects. An innovative way to do just that has been unveiled by creators Dustin Betz and Mike Zaengle, and it is called the BEEcosystem.

Credit: BEEcosystem

A key feature of the BEEcosystem is a literal window into the bee colony it houses. Cedar frames the hexagon-shaped module, and it is covered with a panel of glass.

Multiple modules can be connected by using the side vents which can be opened and closed. The vents can also keep the modules contained if they need to be moved.

Their latest crowdfunding campaign explains:

Because both the hives side vents and additional hive bodies attach magnetically, by simply sliding out any one of the four side-ventilation screens, another BEEcosystem hive body can be attached to create a more spacious hive interiorgiving your colony room to grow and thrive. By using magnetic alignment, BEEcosystem units connect together effortlesslyand because we use powerful magnets, they also connect together securelydelivering both peace of mind and ease of installation.

10 Steps to Remove BPA from Your Body in Less Than a Week "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Many of you know about my struggle with recurrent miscarriage. Though we are so excited about the prospect of growing our family through adoption, Im still concerned that something is wrong in my body and the doctors just cant seem to figure it out. This year Im taking my health into my own hands and instead of looking to the medical profession who up to this point have completely failed me, Im looking inside my own body for the answers. This year Im seeking to get my body back to to a whole, healthy, and healed place. One way Im doing this is by eliminating BPA from my diet. You can also learn about the Real Food diet and how to cut out processed foods by reading this post.

What is BPA you ask? Bisphenol a (BPA) is a synthetic estrogen used to harden polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resin. Yes, you read that right. SYNTHETIC ESTROGEN. An estimated 6 billion pounds of BPA are produced globally annually, generating about $6 billion in sales. It is fabricated into thousands of products made of hard, clear polycarbonate plastics and tough epoxy resins, including safety equipment, eyeglasses, computer and cell phone casings, water and beverage bottles, DENTAL FILLINGS, and epoxy paint and coatings. Despite research that has proven this chemical to be hazardous it is still approved for use in a shocking amount of products. Whats so bad about it? Trace BPA exposure has been shown to disrupt the endocrine system and trigger a wide variety of disorders, including chromosomal and reproductive system abnormalities, impaired brain and neurological functions, cancer, cardiovascular system damage, adult-onset diabetes, early puberty, obesity and resistance to chemotherapy. The most disgusting fact of all is that the highest levels of BPA have been found in baby bottles, and liquid infant formula. Seriously.  (Source: EWG)

When I first started researching this and found out that women who have recurrent miscarriages are found to have much higher traces of BPA in their systems I was horrified. Ive been systematically poisoni...

CNN Openly Admits That They Are Leftist Anti-Gun Activists Masquerading As Journalists As They Publish NRA Name And Shame List "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Since the moment the news broke that yet another horrific mass shooting had taken place in America, this time in Parkland, Florida, the mainstream media has been quick to blame private gun ownership while heavily promoting those that are pushing gun control.

No network has shown their leftist leanings more than CNN, which has gone into full blown overdrive in their around the clock anti-gun coverage, with the first 7 articles on their homepage, including their featured story, all attacking the NRA and promoting leftist gun control causes.

The featured story was a direct attack on the NRA itself as it contained a sort of name and shame list of Florida politicians who were terrible people responsible for children dying because they had taken money from the National Rifle Association.

Interestingly, the piece was marketed as an actual news report while openly promoting and admitting that the authors of the article were anti-gun activists themselves!

Nearly a week after a gunman stormed the hallways of their school in a deadly rampage, students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are heading to Floridas state Capitol to demand lawmakers take action on gun control.

Meanwhile, gun control advocates are putting pressure on Florida representatives who take money from the National Rifle Association.

Heres a list of members of Congress from Florida who received contributions during the 2016 election cycle from the groups political action committee, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund. All of them are Republicans.

It does not get more blatant than that. The reporters literally note that gun control advocates are putting pressure on Florida representatives then they themselves put pressure on said politicians by actually creating a list with all their names and the amount of money they took.

Australian University Launches Nations First Blockchain Course "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Recognising its importance as a revolutionary technology, an Australian university has today announced the countrys first course on blockchain technology. Its being hosted by Melbournes RMIT University and is scheduled to start in mid-March.

Blockchain Skills in High Demand

The eight-week short-course aims to address the current vacuum of young talent familiar with blockchain technology. Alan Tsen, a manager at one of the tech companies behind the new course, Stone and Chalk, told local news source 9news:

There is a real demand for blockchain training and a skills gap in the market that needs to be addressed.

Along with Stone and Chalk, the course has been developed by the universitys Blockchain Innovation Hub and graduate services provider, Accenture. Jason Potts of the former organisation told Business Insider about the technological complexities of blockchain and what the short course hopes to provide for students:

Its actually quite hard to understand a whole lot of different technologies have come together to contribute to it working Much of this course is designed to help executives and business leaders to understand not just how this new technology works, and understanding whats actually behind it, but also how it reflects business models and business strategy.

Without initiatives like the Melbourne university course, the lack of relevant skills issue is only set to get worse. The industry is rapidly expanding and according to tech think tank Gartner Research, will be worth over $176 billion by 2025.

Whilst the first practical application of the technology was cryptocurrency, there are various startups that are experimenting with it for a variety of different purposes. These include cybersecurity, resource management, healthcare, and the legal profession, to name but a few.

One company currently studying how blockchain technology can disrupt existing industries is Power Ledger. Also based in Australia, the startup hopes to provide a platform for sharing solar energy. They received substantial funding in late 2017 from a smart cities grant issued by the government. No doubt co-founder Jemma Green is as excited to hear about local educational institutions taking the technology seriously as sh...

Ancient Ecosystem Discovered From the Larsen Ice Shelf Crack In Antarctica "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


The iceberg referred to as A68, which is approximately seven and a half times the size of New York City, drifted off from the Larsen Ice Shelf in July 2017; exposing a never before ecosystem. This 2246 mile seabed has become an urgent mission for NASA scientists due to its ever-evolving surface layers.

An international team of scientists, from nine research institutes, deploys from Stanley in the Falkland Islands on 21 February 2018 and intends to spend three weeks on board the BAS research ship RRS James Clark Ross. The ice-infested waters will make for a troublesome journey, so the scientists will rely primarily on Satellite monitoring for navigation.

Marine biologist Dr. Katrin Linse from British Antarctic Survey will be chiefing the operation. She explains: The calving of A68 provides us with a unique opportunity study marine life as it responds to a dramatic environmental change. Its important we get there quickly before the undersea environment changes as sunlight enters the water and new species begin to colonize. Weve put together a team with a wide range of scientific skills so that we can collect as much information as possible in a short time. Its very exciting.

The team plans to explore the area formerly submerged under the ice shelf by gathering seafloor animals, microbes, plankton, sediments and water samples. They will also document any marine mammals and birds that might have migrated into the area. Their findings will present a depiction of what life under the ice shelf was like so transformations to the ecosystem can be monitored.

This newly uncovered marine area is the first to profit from an international agreement made in 2016 by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). This agreement appoints Special Areas for Scientific Study in newly exposed marine areas following the collapse or retreat of ice shelves across the Antarctic Peninsula region. The agreement came following a European Union proposal to CCAMLR, led by British Antarctic Survey (BAS) scientists.

Professor David Vaughan, Science Director at BAS says: The calving of A68 offers a new and unprecedented opportunity to establish an interdisciplinary scientific research programme in this climate-sensitive region. Now is the time to address fundamental questions about the sustainability of polar contine...

George Soros and Monsanto are battling it out.

And the only people who are going to lose are activists and consumers.

This is because Avaaz, often labeled the worlds most biggest and powerful activist network in existence online, is being dragged into court by Monsanto. The organization has received a 168-page court subpoena in which Monsanto is demanding Avaaz hand over every private email, note, or record it has regarding Monsanto, including the names and email addresses of all of those who have signed Monsanto campaigns. These include Avaazs petition calling for a moratorium on glyphosate, which has attracted over 2 million signatures, according to GM Watch.

Aromatherapy and aromatic plants for the treatment of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia in patients with Alzheimer's disease. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2017 ;2017:9416305. Epub 2017 Mar 30. PMID: 28465709 Abstract Title:  Aromatherapy and Aromatic Plants for the Treatment of Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia in Patients with Alzheimer's Disease: Clinical Evidence and Possible Mechanisms. Abstract:  The treatment of agitation and aggression, typical Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSDs) of Alzheimer's Disease (AD), is one of the most complicated aspects of handling patients suffering from dementia. Currently, the management of these symptoms often associated with an increased pain perception, which notably reduces the patients' quality of life (QoL), relies on the employment of antipsychotic drugs. Unfortunately, the use of these pharmacological agents has some limits: in the long term, they do not result in being equally effective as in the first weeks of treatment and they present important side effects. Therefore, there is growing interest, supported by clinical evidence, in aromatherapy for the control of agitation, aggression, and psychotic symptoms. Some molecular mechanisms have been proposed to explain the behavioural effects of essential oils, as the whole phytocomplex or the single components, but important basic research effort is still needed. For this reason, rigorous preclinical studies are necessary in order to understand the pharmacological basis of aromatherapy in the treatment of BPSDs and to widen the cluster of effective essential oils in pharmacotherapeutic practice.

Tightness in Chest: Heart Attack vs. Other Types of Chest Pain "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Chest tightness or pain can have a large number of causes, but only some of them are heart related. Its important to tell if the feeling of tightness in chest is a sign of a serious problem like a heart attack or another condition. Even though it can have less-serious causes, you should never ignore any chest pain or discomfort between the upper abdomen and the neck.

Even doctors sometimes have difficulty telling apart chest pain that is a heart attack related from other types of ribcage pain. For example, tightness in the chest and throat can be caused by anxiety, pneumonia, gallstones, or angina. However, there are some other potentially serious reasons for tightness and sharp pains in the chest that arent related to the heart but to the lungs.

One of the challenges of knowing if the chest pains are serious is that heart attacks feel different for everyone. Many experience the classic heart attack symptom of extreme tightness and heaviness in the chest. However, there may also be chest pain that radiates to the shoulder, arm or jaw. The pain in the chest may feel like a burning sensation along with breathlessness, nausea, and sweating.

In this article, you will find out what tightness in the chest means and how to tell if it is caused by cardiac issues. I will also discuss how to tell the difference between symptoms of a heart attack and other less-serious types of chest pain.

How to Tell If Tightness in Chest is Heart Related

Your heart is located on the left side of your chest and most heart-related chest pains are in the center or left side. According to researchers from Harvard Medical School, some of the many heart attack symptoms can include the following:1

  • An uncomfortable feeling of heaviness in the center of the chest that feels like something is tight, squeezing, or pressing.
  • Tight chest pains that spread to your left arm, jaw, neck, or back.
  • Nausea or vomiting that comes on suddenly.
  • Breathlessness
  • A burning sensation in the chest that feels like heartburn or indigestion.
  • Extreme fatigue and tiredness.
  • Cold sweats

So, tightness in the chest is just one of the possible symptoms of a heart attack. Lets look in more detail at what a heart attack feels like or if your chest pain is a sign of something else.

What does Heart Attack Feel Like?
