Media Reports Russia Has Stronger and Deadlier Nuclear Submarine, Calls It the “Vlad Monster” — Conservative Tribune

The Cold War arms race may be heating back up, at least if Russia’s newest submarine is any indication. It’s called the Prince Vladimir — “Knyaz Vladimir” in Russian — and the British press has already dubbed it “Vlad’s Sea Monster” for its formidable capabilities. While the United States Navy typically leads the world in……

Mastercard Seeking A Blockchain Settlement System

mastercard is in the blockchain business

Mastercard may be looking to integrate blockchain into its payments infrastructure.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) published a new application from the financial giant this week that outlines a solution for a “uniform settlement system” – one that would help ease some of the friction involved with business-to-business payments. Specific issues cited in the application include growing data storage demands and the overall volume of transactions.
Notably, Mastercard suggests in the text that such a system could include a blockchain-based ledger of transactions.
As the application explains:
“In some embodiments, the ledger may be a blockchain configured to store the associated data. … In the system, the data values may include the purchase orders, invoices, transaction data, and other data stored in the ledger as discussed herein.”
Mastercard clarified that the blockchain would be able to automatically note all changes made to the ledger, creating a verifiable and immutable record of all data. As a result, malicious users would be unable to modify transactions in the system.
The entry represents the latest intellectual property play by Mastercard that invokes blockchain, in a series of applications that goes back to 2014. Most recently, in August, the USPTO published an application related to cryptocurrency-based refunds.

Nintendo Swings positive Thanks to Switch Console

Sitting outside of the shopping mall is tonygreene113

 

Japanese video game giant Nintendo returned to the black for the quarter ended in June thanks to the success of its new Switch console.

Nintendo recorded an operating profit of $144.95 million (5.13 billion yen) for its fiscal first quarter, compared with a year-ago loss of 24.5 billion yen. Revenue jumped 150 percent to $1.37 billion (154.07 billion yen), the company said Wednesday.

The Kyoto-based company sold 1.97 million Switch consoles in the quarter, taking its total sales to 4.7 million units. Nintendo has been unable to keep up with demand for the hybrid home-portable console, and stores in Japan have been operating lotteries for customers to get the chance to purchase one.

The success of the console, along with that of mobile game Pokemon Go, have helped push Nintendo’s stock price up 60 percent over the last year. Its market value exceeded that of Sony Corp. last month. However, Sony stock has also been on a tear — the company has more recently pushed its market capitalization to around $51 billion, compared with $45 billion for Nintendo.

Read more: Nintendo Sets Price for Switch Game Console, Stock Dips

Nintendo is forecasting sales of 10 million Switch consoles for the full fiscal year to March 2018 and operating profit of 65 billion yen ($580 million at current rates).

The company was late to move into mobile gaming, but revenue from titles including Super Mario Run, along with IP licensing, rose 450 percent to $80 million (9 billion yen) for the latest quarter.

Nintendo’s stock closed up 1.3 percent at 35,770 yen ($320) in Tokyo before the earnings announcement.

Self Portrait – 2017 #introduceyourself



That’s me hanging out all by myself with my trusty Smith and Wesson Compact 9mm on my side.

I did three laps around the interior of the mall. Gladly walking in a controlled environment helps with my bad knees. Unfortunately, to go along with my bad knees is my multi-fractured spine.

Yea, those days of running and jumping have taken their toll. Who dares wins, right?!

Justice League Was Very Good at Studio Movie Grill

My son celebrated his 18th birthday with me and the Justice League. Two weeks ago we went to the theater of my choice for my birthday. At that theater there was the traditional snackfare. In addition to popcorn, you could have a frosty beer or glass of wine.

For the Justice League movie we went to the Studio Movie Grill in Tampa. We did the 2 for $25 deal. Chicken nachos, were the starter we both agreed to. I had the chicken tenders meal with a heaping handful of wedge-cut fries. Javier, my son had the classic cheese burger and fries.

Steemit Has Its Own Group of Censors

RAW pastbin:
@blacklist
Version 1.0.0.0

The Steemit @Blacklist uses a range of metrics to determine who’s a repeat offender of plagiarism, hate speech, bullying, ongoing power-abuse and so on. The Blacklist is computer-generated and is updated irregularly to make sure bad behaving accounts get a quick flag so that other upvote-bots can avoid upvoting the blacklisted accounts and simply skip to the next post. The @blacklist-project is a much wider and further stretching authority than any of the singular up or downvoting guilds currently running on steemit, it is also complimentary to current projects in the same genre which are to keep the steem-blockchain unattractive for scammers, spammers and miserable trolls who are caught bullying or go after steemians in a power-abusive behaviour and so forth and so on.

The @blacklist account is a very serious project who aim to grow over the years with supporting bots and guilds respecting the black flag as the black flag is computer-generated by a popular opinion from a wide range of always active members of the community.

There are one way to get off the blacklist once you are on it, and that is to change your behavior from evil to good over your next 40 posts. Once you have reached that number you must send 40 STEEM to the @blacklist account with “REVIEW” in the memo. Someone from our staff will then manually look at your blog within the next 24-48 hours and remove you from the list if your account now qualifies for it.

The Blacklist contains between 200-500 accounts at any given time. The list grows or shrinks depending on user behavior (1) and user-reaction (2).

The above pastebin script comes from the group of Steemit blockchain users calling themselves “blacklist-a” And as you can see at the lower end of the script their is an extortion payment you must make to be removed from said blacklist. This is even worse than a damn Facebook or twitter ban. At least with a ban of those two platforms you can usually find another platform to voice your opinion without any “financial” damage.

I never thought I would see this but yes it’s there and it’s real because I saw these assholes downvote an innocent video that I posted from my own computer. And with those downvotes and dislikes, there was no money for curation rewards on my post. Along with the blacklist asshole group you are also kicked in the teeth by a bot called “cheetah” and another called “steemcleaners”. The issues with these other two are they attatch themselves to your posts as comments and they upvote your posts with very little to no “Steem Power”. This will keep your post from really generating a good value of curation rewards.

If you’re interested in joining the steemit blockchain, I suggest doing a Google Search and watch some of the videos and get a much clearer understanding of what you’re jumping into.

How to Secure the Best Possible Deal For Your New Domain

How to find a great domain deal

You’ve set up your new business and everything is ready to go. You’ve got your trademark and your LLC and everything else you need to jump into the arena. There’s only one more thing that you need to take care of. You need to get an official company website for your new business so that all of your potential customers can quickly and easily find you. This is the most important aspect of 21st century business strategy, so it isn’t an area that you can skimp or cut corners on. The sooner you get your business on the web, the sooner you can expect the profits to roll in.

You’ll First Need to Reserve a Name For Your Domain

The first thing you need to do is get a quality domain name for your site. This is a move that takes in several aspects of modern business operation. The thing that you most need to keep in mind at all times is that the name you give to your new domain will do more than simply furnish the name of the URL that people will type into the search bar to find you on the web. It will also be the cornerstone of your public reputation. The name that you give to your domain will name and consequently define your brand in the eyes of people who are now getting their first impression of you.

Reserving a Name For Your Domain Is Easier Than Ever

As far as the mechanical operation of reserving a name for your new domain goes, it’s easier to do than ever before. This is largely due to the recent proliferation of service providers. These providers come in all sizes, shapes, and levels of reliability and professional. The trick will be to sign on the dotted line with the provider whose offer will best meet your personal needs. You’ll need to do a bit of research on the web to find out which one this will be. Once you do, it’s time to weigh a number of further considerations so that you can be sure your needs are met.

What Qualities Should You Look For in a Hosting Services Provider?

There are a number of very important qualities that you need to look for in order to be sure that you are getting the best possible deal for your dollar. Reliability and availability are the first order of business. You will need to be able to contact your provider at a moment’s notice – at any and all times of the day or night – when you spot a nasty glitch or security error. Whether they are big or small, these glitches will affect the quality of your website. If they are noticed by the public and your provider does nothing to fix them, they can lead to serious damage for your brand.

The Time to Reserve a Name For Your Domain Is Now

The sooner you choose a name for your domain and reserve it as your own, the better. This is the first step in getting your business on the web and establishing your brand. You can rely on professional aid and counsel from a reputable provider in order to help you meet this goal.

How to get the most out of an online e-commerce shopping application

Using Your Shopping Cart

Effectively When you go to your favorite grocery store, little is more annoying than getting a shopping cart with wobbly wheels and one that squeaks like a laughing hyena. Such an occurrence really puts a damper on the entire shopping experience. The same can be said for online shopping carts. If they are clunky and lacking in functionality, the entire shopping experience is cheapened to the point that all but your most loyal of customers will go elsewhere. Consider the following ways to use your ecommerce shopping cart software more effectively and gain customers as a result.

Provide Vivid Descriptions and Pictures

If your site contains few to no pictures, it will be difficult to convince consumers to take you very seriously. Consumers want to see what they are purchasing. Since it is not possible to feel the physical merchandise being offered online, pictures are the next best thing. Your shopping cart should contained vivid descriptions and digital quality pictures that encapsulate the true essence of what it is that you are selling. If you can do that right within your shopping cart, visitors will just need to click a simple button to add it to the cart. It really is that simple, and then you will see your sales increase as a result.

Make Payment a Snap

Imagine filling your cart up in the grocery store only to get to the checkout line and find no cashiers available to help you. Perhaps they are all on break or they just did not show up for work. Whatever the reason, you will be tempted to leave the store without your items given the level of frustration that you feel. Likewise, your online customers will leave a full online cart of items without paying for them if you do not provide them with an easy checkout option. This means that you need to have a payment channel that is simple to use and does not require a lot of time. The quicker and more seamless you can make the process, the better off you will be in the end.

Integrate the Cart Into the Site Itself

Visitors to your site need to be able to find the shopping cart easily, no matter what page they might navigate to. The best way to do this is to make sure the software that you use actually integrates the cart right into the website itself. This will enable the consumer to click on the cart at any time and see what they have put in there. This should be easily updated so that visitors can change the quantity ordered on the go, as well as delete any items that are no longer needed. Again, the key here is to make this entire process as easy as possible. Do not make consumers go to a third party website in order to checkout. It is not professional and will cost you customers in the long run. These are just four of the many ways that you can use an online shopping cart to your advantage. Remember that the key is to make the cart functional and easy to use. This is a tool that you have at your disposal as a business owner, so make sure that you use it wisely. If you do, your business will almost certainly grow as a result.

Who else has the same thoughts about mundane tasks

I’m not necessarily the type of person to point out my faults to others, but in this case I’m going to make an exception. I’m lazy. I mean really lazy. I’d prefer if someone else could take all my mundane work and just do it for me.

I know I’m not the only one – that’s why there’s so many different applications out there for automating work. And I think that’s a good thing, because if you want to focus on growing your business (and your bottom line), you need to be spending your time wisely.

While we’ve done everything we can to make socialadr.com fast and easy to use, today you have the opportunity to take it that last step and go completely hands off. When you select the Lazy option, you literally don’t do anything at all other than put in the links you want shared. That’s it. Other users will push your links out to the social media sites, and you collect the social buzz.

TOP GENERAL SAYS LEAKS TO THE NEW YORK TIMES ARE THE REASON ISIS LEADER AL-BAGHDADI ESCAPED US FORCES AND IS LIKELY STILL ALIVE

  • General Tony Thomas has blamed leakers for the apparent survival of ISIS leader
  • Says US and allies have killed 60,000-70,000 ISIS soldiers in Iraq and Syria
  • But leader al-Baghdadi apparently remains alive despite conflicting reports
  • Now Thomas blames 2015 New York Times report for giving away US advantage

By Keith Griffith For Dailymail.com, 22 July 2017:

A top US general has blamed leaks to the New York Times for giving ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the ability to evade American forces seeking to kill him.

General Tony Thomas, who leads Special Operations Command, said Friday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado that his teams were ‘particularly close’ to al-Baghdadi after a 2015 raid, Fox News reported.

That operation, a Delta Force commando raid in eastern Syria, killed ISIS oil minister Abu Sayyaf and captured his wife, yielding a trove of information about the terror group’s operations and logistics.

‘That was a very good lead. Unfortunately, it was leaked in a prominent national newspaper about a week later and that lead went dead,’ said Thomas, in an apparent reference to a New York Times report about the raid from June 2015.

General Tony Thomas, who leads Special Operations Command, blamed this 2015 report in the New York Times for tipping off al-Baghdadi to the insights gained from a Delta Force raid

The ruins of the Grand al-Nuri Mosque in Mosul, where al-Baghdadi declared his caliphate, are seen earlier this week. A US general is blaming leaks for allowing the ISIS leader to escape

That report read in part: ‘New insights yielded by the seized trove — four to seven terabytes of data, according to one official — include how the organization’s shadowy leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, operates and tries to avoid being tracked by coalition forces.’

The New York Times report even detailed knowledge gained about al-Baghdadi’s security precautions for meeting and communicating with his lieutenants, including the use of wives to pass messages.

‘The challenge we have [is] in terms of where and how our tactics and procedures are discussed openly,’ Thomas said.

‘There’s a great need to inform the American public about what we’re up to. There’s also great need to recognize things that will absolutely undercut our ability to do our job,’ he continued.

President Donald Trump seized on the remarks early Saturday morning, tweeting: ‘The Failing New York Times foiled U.S. attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist,Al-Baghdadi.Their sick agenda over National Security’.

The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com.

homas offered a ‘conservative’ estimate that US forces and allies had killed 60,000 to 70,000 ISIS fanatics, saying of al-Bagdadi that ‘everyone who worked for him initially is dead or gone’.

Meanwhile, amid conflicting reports last month that Russian forces had killed al-Baghdadi, US Defense Secretary James Mattis has said he believes the ISIS leader is still alive.

‘I think Baghdadi is alive, I think he’s alive and I’ll believe otherwise when we know we’ve killed him,’ Mattis told Pentagon reporters on Friday.

‘We are going after him, but we assume he is alive.’

Asked whether al-Baghdadi still plays a command role in ISIS, Mattis mused: ‘To define that role, is it operational? Is it strategic? Is it propaganda? Is it spiritual? Is it physical? I can’t define it, but until I see his body, I’m going to assume he is alive.’

There have been persistent rumors that Baghdadi has died in recent months.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a longtime conflict monitor, last week said it had heard from senior IS leaders in Syria’s Deir Ezzor province that Baghdadi was dead.

transformer actor locked in various arrest jurisdictions

Authorities in Georgia arrested Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf early Saturday morning on suspicion of obstruction, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after he reportedly harassed a random stranger for refusing to give him a cigarette, then berated the police for asking him to stop.

“He became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present,” police said in a statement. “He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer.”

The statement added: “When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel. LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued.”

shia lebouf has gone all in to being a huge douchebag when it came to electing president trump. he and his monies are like little kids that refuse to give up the ball after getting their asses kick.

This was not the first brush with the law for the actor, whose behavior seems to have grown worse since the election of President Donald Trump, whose agenda he strongly opposes.

Authorities arrested him about six months ago when he tussled with a man outside of an anti-Trump art exhibit he had set up in Queens.

When the man approached the exhibit, LaBeouf reportedly pushed him away and then pulled on his scarf, scratching the victim’s face in the process.

He was arrested shortly thereafter.

The art exhibit had been part of a now-defunct project where LaBeouf broadcast a live video stream and encouraged participants to congregate around the camera and repeatedly chant, “He will not divide us.”

Four months later, the Hollywood actor was sued by a Los Angeles bartender who he had reportedly accosted at a bowling alley a month prior..

congressional black caucus is really flooring a bill for a white tax

 

congressional black caucus photo on capitol stepsDelusional Democrats in the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly renewed their ill-conceived efforts to force white Americans to pay for the sins of some of their ancestors.

Specifically, Michigan Rep. John Conyers and his fellow CBC members have “re-introduced legislation that would set up a commission to consider whether reparations should be paid to black Americans for slavery,” according to the Washington Examiner.

Conyers has reportedly been proposing the bill every year for at least two decades. As noted by the Examiner, the bill would also consider the prospect of the federal government issuing a formal apology for the “racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans.”

This despite the fact that slavery was outlawed over 150 years ago and not every white American’s ancestors partook in the hideous trade — or were even in the country at the time.

Moreover, according to The Root magazine, known for its usually unapologetically pro-black stance on the issues, even some free black Americans “bought and sold other black people, and did so at least since 1654, continuing to do so right through the Civil War.”

And even one of the most leftist papers in existence, The New York Times, admitted two years ago that were a reparations bill passed into law, payments would “have to come from taxpayers, who have no culpability for those past crimes and little, if any, of the benefit.”

Unless the government were to use only the funds of white taxpayers, which would be inherently racist, reparations would therefore be funded by Americans of all races, including black Americans.

The bill was to all intents and purposes economically unfeasible, historically inaccurate and a royal waste of time — one likely rooted in animosity as well as ignorance.

Over 150 years have passed since America’s darkest days, and within that time frame, the nation has become one of the most tolerant countries on Earth, as reported three years ago by The Washington Post:

most-tolerant-country

As bad as slavery was — and there’s no arguing that it was a horrific national sin — the time has long since come to let the issue go. That would certainly be better than flogging a dead horse — one that ought to be long buried in this day and age.

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about the Congressional Black Caucus renewing its efforts to impose reparations on the nation!

candice wiggins was harassed by the wnba lesbians during her career

candice waggins was harassed as a straight person in the wnbaCandice Wiggins was a college star at Stanford, the third pick of the 2008 WNBA draft and a 2011 champion. And at the mountaintop of her basketball career, her sexuality marred the moment.

There is a “very, very harmful” culture running throughout the WNBA, she says, which saw her get bullied during her eight-year career because she is heterosexual.

Wiggins, who last played in the league in 2015, said she retired prematurely to leave a league that she estimated — wildly — is 98 percent lesbian, and which is played in such isolation that it weighs on the people on the court.

“It wasn’t like my dreams came true in the WNBA. It was quite the opposite,” Wiggins said in an extensive San Diego Tribune story published Monday. “… I wanted to play two more seasons of WNBA, but the experience didn’t lend itself to my mental state. It was a depressing state in the WNBA. It’s not watched. Our value is diminished. It can be quite hard. I didn’t like the culture inside the WNBA, and without revealing too much, it was toxic for me. … My spirit was being broken.”

The 30-year-old couldn’t take it anymore — being harassed for being straight and fighting for attention in a league that is starved.

“Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Wiggins said. “I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules they [the other players] could apply.”

Wiggins, who played for the Lynx, Shock, Sparks and Liberty, claimed the issues revolve around the lack of attention the league has garnered as the WNBA struggles with ticket sales and TV ratings. For the 2016 season, the WNBA said its average attendance was 7,655 — its highest since 2011.

“There was a lot of jealousy and competition, and we’re all fighting for crumbs,” Wiggins said. “The way I looked, the way I played – those things contributed to the tension.

“People were deliberately trying to hurt me all of the time. I had never been called the B-word so many times in my life than I was in my rookie season. I’d never been thrown to the ground so much. The message was: ‘We want you to know we don’t like you.’ “

Though categorically denying rumors she was having sex with students from the school, Swogger was quoted as saying, “I was stupid, very stupid. I already know I was and I can understand you looking at me wrong. It’s the biggest mistake I ever made in my whole life.” Police allege Swogger “asked or encouraged” two 15-year-old runaway girls to have sex with her. According to a police papers, Swogger admitted to having sex with a 17-year-old boy and asked police, “How serious is that?” The one-time exotic dancer resigned Feb. 25, 2008.

Abigail Holloway, 33 The former gym teacher at the Christian prep school, Kings Academy, in Sunnyvale, Calif., was arrested March 5, 2009, at St. Mary’s Academy in Englewood, Colorado, where she was working, on charges stemming from an alleged sexual relationship with a female student lasting from 2001 to 2005. The girl, now a student at Whitworth College in Spokane, Wash., told a school counselor about the relationship that had occurred in California beginning when she was 13. During that time, according to the girl, she and Holloway were intimate “over 100 times.” “We have a very special relationship. It is a gift from God,” states an alleged e-mail from Holloway to the girl in March 2003. “Not many people are going to understand that, but we know in our hearts that God made us for each other!” Holloway is fighting extradition.

According to local media and court documents, Vera admittedly engaged in a long-running sexual relationship with the boy with the knowledge and support of his parents. Vera, an English teacher, allegedly told authorities she first met the boy, then 13, during summer school and gave him her phone number when he asked. She also allegedly said the boy asked her to hang out, and she agreed, and that over the course of a couple of days, kissing led to a sexual relationship. As Click2Houston put it: “Vera said the student’s parents not only knew about the relationship, they approved of it and allowed the teen to spend the night at Vera’s home … where they engaged in sex on a regular basis, according to court documents. She told an investigator that she would drop him off at home in the morning so he could catch the bus to Stovall Middle School, prosecutors said.”
