Bitcoin: speculative hysteria or technological revolution?

gshsadtjadusaaxxaretsetter

The crazy rise of Bitcoin continues. The price of the virtual currency, whose name arouses a fever in the media and on the stock markets, continues to rise, surpassing the symbolic threshold of $8,000 on November 21 while it was still worth $3,000 last June.

If we recall that the e-money was trading for $1 in 2010, the increase is impressive, but we must also remember that the price of Bitcoin also fell sharply in 2011 and 2013 and has experienced very rapid fluctuations since then.

However, the mad race for growth that has been going on since the beginning of the year 2017 and the symbolic passage of the $8,000 suggests to all those who profess an unshakeable faith in the new digital god that it will make them millionaires. On the contrary, other observers predict the imminent bursting of this new speculative bubble or insist on the fact that changes in the price of Bitcoin are decided by a small number of players, some 70 investment funds that make and break the prices as they wish. You can even buy Bitcoin with Paypal like explained here www.cryptos-monnaies.fr/acheter-des-bitcoins-avec-paypal/

This new technology opens up vivid and fascinating perspectives and a speculative fury that bodes well for a crash.

The current situation is not so far removed from the hysteria triggered in the 1990s by the beginnings of the Internet. In both cases, a new technology that few still understand, vagueness and fascination, and speculative fury that bodes well for a crash.

The bursting of the first “Internet bubble” in March 2000 left many investors on the back burner, fewer who had managed to preserve the considerable fortunes built on sand in such a short time.

fsojgnsgnepanirueourtuuttuytyyyuProfits from 1995 to 2000 totaled $145 billion, and losses in 2000-2001 totaled $148 billion.

Without throwing into the extreme gloom of the last-minute modernists who swear by the “tablet revolution” at school or want to connect everything, from the teacher to the entrepreneur to the fridge, it remains true that in two decades, a few significant innovations have forever changed our lives and our societies.

The same type of technological leap is taking place behind the highly mediatic Bitcoin, a virtual tree that hides the forest from the real applications of the block chine principle to the economy and everyday life. What hides behind these still little-known concepts of digital currencies whose stock market adventures excite investors’ imagination? The answer is simple: an algorithm. The explanation is much less so.

The Bitcoin is an encrypted currency that allows for online peer-to-peer transactions without the intervention of a third party as an audit authority.

Android: Google collects your location continuously and sneakily

The computer giant registers the GSM cell addresses of users, even if geolocation services are disabled. This collection is expected to cease by the end of this month.

It’s not just OnePlus or Wiko that are collecting strange user data. The giant Google itself has just been caught in the bag. Quartz reporters have just revealed that Mountain View’s servers are constantly recording the GSM cell numbers of all Android smartphones. This identifier, which is specific to each operator, is automatically distributed to terminals as soon as they enter the radius of a base station. The problem is that it makes it possible to locate the user in a more or less fine way, especially if triangulation techniques are used.

Google has confirmed to Quartz the collection of this data by stating that it has never been stored. GSM cell addresses have been effectively transmitted since January 2017 to apparently “improve the speed and performance of message routing.” But in reality, this data would never have been used. Google promised he’d stop collecting it by the end of the month.

General terms of services of use are not clear.

According to a Quartz source, this collection started with the update of Firebase Cloud Messaging, a mail and notification service that has been owned by Google since 2014 and is integrated by default in all Android smartphones. It is not clear how the GSM cell number can help Google to route these messages and notifications. Quartz has found that this collection is carried out on all terminals at all times, even if the user deactivates geolocation, and even in the absence of a SIM card.

In Google’s terms of use, this collection is not specifically stated. Google only explains how to use “different technologies to locate you, including IP address, GPS signals and other sensors that allow us to identify devices, WiFi access points, and nearby relay antennas.” It would be nice if Google would abandon this vague wording and finally give more details about what it collects.

Vaping, a better way to Smoke in 2017!

The Best Cannabis Vaporizers in 2017

There are various ways to consume cannabis; it is possible to ingest it, to smoke it or to vaporize it, among others.

In this article, we will try to explain what vaporization is, what are its benefits, and which types of cannabis strains are ideal for vaporizing. We will also see the different types of vaporizers most commonly available on the market.

What is cannabis vaping?

Vaporizing consists of subjecting the cannabis to a temperature lower than the combustion temperature, 220 ° – 240º approximately, and inhaling the vapors that escape from it. The ideal vapor temperature of cannabis is between 180 ° C and 210 ° C.

The first information we have about the vapor of marijuana comes from ancient Egypt, where cannabis, among other aromatic herbs, was placed on a hot stone so that a good odor, like a kind of deodorant, spreads.

Why Vaporize Cannabis?

the crafty vaporizerThe vapors released from combustion contain a lot of harmful gases and many carcinogenic components, including carbon monoxide, tar, benzene or toluene, among others.

When we burn cannabis, its structure goes from 70 elements that the plant contains, to more than 400 components that are then derived from the burning of marijuana. One study shows that 95% of the vapor is made up of THC when vaping cannabis, while by smoking it only 13% of the smoke contains cannabinoids, the rest is composed of by-products of combustion, the majority being Of carcinogenic hydrocarbons.

People who are close to us are also intoxicated if the cannabis is smoked. They then become passive smokers.

Types of Vaporizers

Many vaporizers are available in the market today, of different types and with various methods for evaporation of plant components.

Portable Vapes

desktop vapes are greatPortable vaporizers are those that have a rechargeable battery, they have a range, and can be transported by the user with great ease. There are many portable vaporizers, such as Ascent DaVinci, Arizer, MiniVAP, Crafty, Mighty …

The Arizer vaporizer is compact and has a 2-hour battery life when used at low temperatures with a glass absorption tube, which helps to cool the smoke. The new model of this vaporizer subjects the cannabis to medium heat in direct contact with a hot ceramic plate and has five temperatures ranging from 180º to 210º.

The portable vaporizer that we love very much and that a large part of the team uses for various cannabis tastings is the Ascent DaVinci. It is a very versatile portable vaporizer. His 3 hours of autonomy make him a perfect ally for an afternoon with friends, and a good herb.

With it, you can regulate the temperature from 160º to 220º and enjoy all the flavor and effects of marijuana.

Desktop vaporizers

Desktop vapes are perfect for consuming cannabis in good company when you are at home, or elsewhere you have electricity to connect them. They have a larger size compared to portable vaporizers but do not depend on batteries.

A company with insurance is the best of all as you will never know when an emergency will happen. For instance, they might be repairing your heater then one of the plumber tools hits you or a family member. If the company had insurance, then you will be catered by the insurance policy. On the contrary, you will have to pay for treatment which is an unnecessary expenditure that was not in your budget.

Good plumbing companies who offer quality services have total confidence in whatever they do. As proof, they will not hesitate to issue a guarantee which is solid.

Problems to Look for Before Buying a House

Whether you have found a deal too good to be true or have decided ahead of time to cave in and pay more than you should, you actually can avoid many common problems that just seem to be a natural and expected part of the real estate process. All you have to do is avoid being distracted by the estate agent and maintain a laser-like focus on some of the areas that most commonly need servicing.

Faucets

Not just taps in a general sense, of course, but an entirely particular disorder that may be indicative of more serious problems with your dream home than are apparent. Make a mission of actually checking every faucet in the house for dripping. Do not be afraid of being rude; leaky faucets are more than just an annoyances, they are a metaphor. That sound that gradually transforms from annoying to an unheard facet of white noise is the sound of money emptying out of your bank account. What seems little more than minor drip today could very well turn out to be a major leak tomorrow.

Windows

Few accessories have led to worse home buying decisions than beautiful window treatments. Do not under any circumstances be led astray by gorgeous drapes, beautiful curtains or fancy shades. It is incumbent upon your future happiness to peer past such facades in search of what they may be hiding. Problems like sagging or cracking of the sash that will beyond any doubt cost you big down the road.

Vegetation

No, not what the buyers are eating when you the estate agents ring you up around supper time. A house is a house, but a home is a house with a yard. Do not miss the opportunity to check out landscaping features like trees, vines, flower gardens, bushes, shrubs and, of course, the grass. Inspect every last inch of greenery for tell-tale evidence of insect infestation, dead branches, brown patches in the yard, blight, termites and even just plain old unsightly upkeep that has only recently been given a quick once-over. Check the yard not only for direct evidence of how problems might affect the house itself such as termites or limbs falling on the roof but also for systemic lack of upkeep that most likely translates into an equitable lack of regular maintenance behind the closed doors.

Outdoor Structure

The same deal with the yard applies to other outside elements. Driveways, walkways and patios all add to the kerb appeal of a home but are also prone to cracks and other costly damages. Minor cracks are normal but don’t attribute any excessive impairments as natural. An overabundance of fissures, chips, potholes and other deficiencies are more likely the consequence of shoddy workmanship that you will eventually be the one paying for on down the road.

Hiring Event Furniture For Your Special Day

Renting Wedding Furniture

Most couples want to have a lot of input into the details of their wedding day celebration. Reception halls can be impersonal, and depending on where you rent the space for your wedding and reception, furniture and decorations may be minimal.

Couples may also want to hold their event outdoors or in a private location. It makes sense to rent event furniture from one company, instead of trying to borrow it from several friends or family. You can choose only the types of furniture you need for your event, in the styles you want. Since weddings are often themed in certain colours and styles, this is a significant benefit.

Why would a business use a Two-Tier ERP system?


The basic concept behind Two-Tier ERP is a pretty easy one to grasp. ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. The clue indeed is in the title; companies run two ERP systems at the same time as each other. Sometimes when companies use two systems consecutively, they both operate using the same software package. At other times, a different kind of ERP software will be used for each of the Two-Tier regimes. Companies believe that there are advantages to adopting the Two-Tier ERP system as a means of improving business planning and then operational effectiveness.

Generally, though larger companies adopt the Two-Tier ERP system as smaller ones do not typically believe that they would need to use two ERP software packages in tandem with each other. Small businesses may only have a few branches, offices, and stores so that it would be more practical to stick with a single ERP system to be used throughout their company. However, if the management of smaller companies want to have tighter control of how they run their business planning and manage their resources, there is nothing stopping them switching to a Two-Tier ERP system.

Arguably, it is larger companies that would benefit most from switching to a Two-Tier system. Larger enterprises that have already have a Two-Tier system in place have a greater ERP for all their branches across the country (or even internationally) and a smaller ERP that covers for all of their local offices or stores. This gives management the big picture of all activities across the whole business and the small picture as well.

The data from both sets of ERP then have to be collected together to provide an accurate picture of how the business is performing taken as a whole. Using the Two-Tier ERP does involve installing more software and analyzing more data yet contains information that is useful for management teams.
