If You Build the Blockchain, Regulators Will Come | FreedomWorks



If You Build the Blockchain, Regulators Will Come | FreedomWorksThe definition of cryptocurrency has already proved problematic for regulators. Essentially, to commodities regulators, virtual currency is a commodity. For bank regulators, it is a bank. For securities regulators, it is a security. For those who regulate money transmitters, it is a money transmitter. For the purpose of property taxes, it is a property. Everyone wants a stake in the new world of virtual currency.

The “default setting” for regulators is to do something. This has lead to a lot of regulatory confusion surrounding cryptocurrency.

Here in the 1930s, he explained, followers of “Karl Marx, Adam Smith and the anarchists” joined forces in a revolutionary government in Catalonia, to fight against the fascists led by Gen. Francisco Franco — before turning on each other.

PCLinuxOS Magazine - HTMLQ: What parting advice or words of wisdom would you like to leave the PCLinuxOS magazine readers?

Old-Polack: That from which my sig derives.

Of what use be there for joy, if not for the sharing thereof? Is not a thing shared of greater worth, than that same thing, hoarded for it's own sake? Is not sharing then, the true essence of joy? Unshared, one's joy is but a passing moment of a selfish existence. Shared, joy is that one true value of life, which is increased, in direct proportion to the degree with which it is shared. Joy is always best savored while shared.

Following the Failed Coup, Erdogan’s Broken Democratic Promise to Turkey Lives On - Defense One

Following the Failed Coup, Erdogan’s Broken Democratic Promise to Turkey Lives On - Defense OneToday, the dominant force is Erdogan. He is obsessed with consolidating his own power, rather than strengthening Turkey’s government and rule of law as he set out to do. He has proposed rewriting Turkey’s constitution, thereby overhauling its current parliamentary system and transforming it into a presidential one, in which he would have unprecedented and unchecked powers.

DISCOVERY

They’ll Have to
Rewrite the Textbooks
Josh Barney
03.21.16


It’s a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching: researchers at the School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. “I really did not believe there were structures in the body that we were not aware of. I thought the body was mapped,” said Jonathan Kipnis, a professor in the Department of Neuroscience and director of the University’s Center for Brain Immunology and Glia. How these vessels could have escaped detection when the lymphatic system has been so thoroughly mapped throughout the body is surprising on its own.


But the true significance of the discovery lies in its ramifications for the study and treatment of neurological diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer’s disease to multiple sclerosis. Kipnis said researchers no longer need to ask questions such as, “How do we study the immune response of the brain?” or “Why do multiple sclerosis patients have immune system attacks?” “Now we can approach this mechanistically — because the brain is like every other tissue connected to the peripheral immune system through meningeal lymphatic vessels,” Kipnis said. “We believe that for every neurological disease that has an immune component to it, these vessels may play a major role.” Kevin Lee, who chairs the Department of Neuroscience, recalled his reaction the first time researchers in Kipnis’ lab shared their basic result with him.

“I just said one sentence: ‘They’ll have to rewrite the textbooks.’ There has never been a lymphatic system for the central nervous system, and it was very clear from that first singular observation — and they’ve done many studies since then to bolster the finding — that it will fundamentally change the way people look at the central nervous system’s relationship with the immune system,” Lee said.

7.13.16 Update:
New Role Found For The Immune System


In a paper published in July 2016, UVA researchers determined that the immune system affects – and even controls – social behavior. Their discovery could profoundly affect treatment of several neurological disorders such as diseases such as autism-spectrum disorders and schizophrenia. The relationship between people and pathogens, the researchers suggest, could have directly affected the development of our social behavior, allowing us to engage in the social interactions necessary for the survival of the species while developing ways for our immune systems to protect us from the diseases that accompany those interactions.

The discovery was made possible by the work of Antoine Louveau, a postdoctoral fellow in Kipnis’ lab. The vessels were detected after Louveau developed a method to mount a mouse’s meninges — the membranes covering the brain — on a single slide so that they could be examined as a whole. After noticing vessel-like patterns in the distribution of immune cells on his slides, he tested for lymphatic vessels and there they were. The impossible existed. “Live imaging of these vessels was crucial to demonstrate their function, and it would not be possible without collaboration with Tajie Harris,” Kipnis noted. Harris is an assistant professor of neuroscience and a member of the Center for Brain Immunology and Glia. Kipnis also saluted the “phenomenal” surgical skills of Igor Smirnov, a research associate in the Kipnis lab whose work was critical to the imaging success of the study.





The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels raises a tremendous number of questions that now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it. For example, take Alzheimer’s disease. “In Alzheimer’s, there are accumulations of big protein chunks in the brain,” Kipnis said. “We think they may be accumulating in the brain because they’re not being efficiently removed by these vessels.” He noted that the vessels look different with age, so the role they play in aging is another avenue to explore. And there’s an enormous array of other neurological diseases, from autism to multiple sclerosis, that must be reconsidered in light of the presence of something science insisted did not exist.

Pakistani model's brother says he killed her for 'honor' | Fox News

Pakistani model's brother says he killed her for 'honor' | Fox NewsNearly 1,000 women are murdered in Pakistan each year for violating conservative norms on love, marriage and public behavior. The so-called "honor killings" are often carried out by family members.

Such killings are considered murder. But Islamic law in Pakistan allows a murder victim's family to pardon the killer, which often allows those convicted of honor killings to escape punishment.

Why is Amazon Building A Giant Biosphere in Seattle? - The New Stack

Why is Amazon Building A Giant Biosphere in Seattle? - The New StackAlthough it won’t be open until 2018, it already begs the question: Just what is Amazon up to? Bloomberg suggests the idea is part of a new trend, where giant technology companies cling to city campuses because that’s where millennial workers most want to live. “LinkedIn consolidated staff scattered around San Francisco into a 26-story tower in March. Salesforce.com will be the anchor tenant in a 61-story skyscraper a few miles away.” Uber, General Electric, and McDonalds are all moving workers into city centers. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos may see this as a perk he can deliver to his workers just by hiring the right architects to design an appropriate patch of real estate.
