first_imgWhat is your background briefly?There is only really one theme in my life that would tie everything together. I Love technology and believe we can solve any problems we face with it. Bitcoin became my obsession a few years ago. The idea that we could send payment globally with little to no friction was amazing. But mining Bitcoin is very resource intense and challenging. For fun I was mining Bitcoin in my living room, and writing how-to guides. After a few months of heating my house with my bitcoin miner, I started to wonder if there were other things we could do that would allow us to better leverage the network.After discussing this with a friend and reading a white paper, he had helped author, I sold my company and moved to Texas to help build a new software company. That company was Factom and it is a high capacity blockchain network. We built some of the very first enterprise blockchain software. Not much was known about Bitcoin at the time so I started speaking publicly and writing to try and explain to the general public why the technology was such a game changer. At the time there was a lot of negative press about Bitcoin.I wanted to help change the narrative and talk about the business and social impact of blockchain. Wiley publishing reached out to me after reading some of my work and asked if I would be interested in writing a book on blockchain. A few months later and with a lot of help from my editors, we published Blockchain for Dummies.(see both reviews here)Blockchain For Dummies, 2nd Edition by Tiana Laurence, reviewedDoes it seem like a logical background to what you do now?Yes, I’m still advocating for blockchain technology, investing in the space, and writing.1 min pitch for what you are doing now?I have some new ideas about how we can leverage decentralized networks to enable smart IoT devices to negotiate for resources. I’m working on this project now. I also have another book in the works.In many ways it makes sense to write a 2nd edition as so much has happened since the first edition. Would you agree? Where do you feel we are in terms of the Gartner hype curve in terms of blockchain?The space moved so fast after the ICO crazy, a lot of money and talent was attracted. Blockchain is still a “backend” software so despite the excitement there were not enough engineers at the time to work on all the projects. The enthusiasm also attracted scam artists. When I wrote Blockchain for Dummies there were only a few dozen projects in the world.Now there are thousands. It is possible after Facebooks Libra is fully released that there could billions of people using blockchain technology and millions of companies. If we compare this to the progress of the internet, we are still in the early 90’s. Most people know about it, but it is for simple things like chat rooms. Libra could be equivalent to Hotmail + Myspace, an application that most people like and can use.If you were to do a 3rd edition in a few years time, what would ‘good’ look like if blockchain adoption continues to grow?I think that we will see governments issuing digital currency on permissioned blockchains. We will also see more companies switching to self-clearing and settling securities. They make a tone of sense and will save companies and regulators a lot of money.I hope we see more compelling use cases that engage the general public. Blockchain has yet to find an application that drives exponential adoption.What aspects are you excited about in terms of the roll out of blockchain?I’m very excited about Libra and the innovations on the Ethereum network. It will be very interesting to see how proof of stake works and sharding the network. If Ethereum is able to accomplish this while maintaining data integrity, mainstream Dapps can become practical.How can people find out more about you & your work?@laurencetiana is the best way to catch meSigned a bunch of my new Blockchain for Dummies books!

Afghans reject USfavored administrative detention

first_imgAssociated PressKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – An Afghan judicial panel ruled Monday that administrative detention violates Afghan law, potentially thwarting a U.S. plan to hand over Afghan detainees that American officials believe should continue to be held without a trial.President Hamid Karzai’s office announced in a statement that a top-level judicial panel met earlier in the day and decided that the detention of Afghan citizens without a court trial “has not been foreseen in Afghan laws” and therefore could not be used. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) The U.S. government has long held Afghans captured in operations inside the country without trial, arguing that they are enemy combatants and therefore can be detained for as long as their release might pose a danger to the international coalition.Afghan laws have come into play only since the signing of a deal in March in which the U.S. agreed it would hand over all Afghan citizens to the Afghan government _ acceding to a key Karzai demand to pave the way for a pact allowing for the long-term presence of U.S. forces in the country.But the United States has also argued that it cannot risk the release of some high-value detainees to the notoriously corrupt Afghan court system. Even though the deadline for the handover passed on Sept. 10, the Americans are still holding more than 600 Afghans in their custody.A U.S. official confirmed that the transfer of detainees had paused because of the dispute. The official was not authorized to give a public statement and so spoke on condition of anonymity.Aimal Faizi, a spokesman for Karzai, said the judicial ruling followed a vigorous effort by the Americans to persuade the Afghans to adopt administrative detention. He said the topic was discussed Sunday during a contentious meeting between Karzai and the U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Marc Grossman. Top Stories He did add, however, that Karzai was demanding that the U.S. government provide more details about specifically what it hoped to get out of the next pact up for negotiations _ a U.S.-Afghan security agreement that is supposed to get into the finer details of how U.S. troops will operate in the country, what type of bases they will have and what legal authority they will answer to. A failure to come to such an agreement in Iraq prompted the swift withdrawal of U.S. forces from that country.“We need to know the specifics of the security agreement,” Faizi said. “We would like to know what the American government wants from us.”The New York-based Open Society Foundations said in a report issued earlier this month that the U.S. is worried that the Afghan government will either release dangerous detainees or forward their cases to the messy Afghan system. The Afghan government agreed to embrace an internment system when it first signed the accord in March, but top Afghan officials and legal experts then started to argue that it violated the Afghan constitution, according to the report.The U.S. began detention operations at Bagram Air Field in early 2002. For several years, prisoners were kept at a former Soviet aircraft machine plant converted into a lockup. In 2009, the U.S. opened a new detention facility next door. The number of detainees incarcerated at the prison, now called the Parwan Detention Facility, has swelled from about 1,100 in September 2010 to 3,110 in the spring of this year. More continued to be added after the memorandum was signed. 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches “This was the intention, that administrative detention would be respected by Afghans,” Faizi said.After the meeting, Karzai issued a statement lashing out at the Americans.“The continued holding of Afghans in American custody runs in contradiction with the spirit of mutual friendship and the provisions of the bilateral strategic partnership agreement,” the statement said. It accused the United States of violating the March pact by continuing to hold some prisoners.In an emailed response, the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan said they were still committed to abiding by the memorandum of understanding, or MOU.“Ambassador Grossman made clear in his discussion with the president that the United States fully respects Afghan sovereignty. There is no question of our commitment to fully implement the MOU in recognition of Afghan sovereignty and the need to protect the security of Afghan civilians, Afghan national security forces and coalition forces,” the statement said.Faizi said now that the judicial panel has ruled, Karzai expects the remaining prisoners to be transferred to Afghan control “as soon as possible.”“We should respect the agreements signed between the two countries,” Faizi said. He declined to say what Karzai would do if the U.S. continued to refuse to hand over the detainees by a certain date. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Comments   Share   Former Arizona Rep.

Helector witness has no idea about irregular waste invoices

first_imgA man who worked for a company cooperating with Helector – the operator of landfills in Paphos and Larnaca – denied in court on Monday that he was on the take in return for manipulating data relating to the amounts of processed municipal waste.Petros Petrou, a software operator for a company that received and weighed municipal waste, was testifying as a prosecution witness in the ongoing trial in the Nicosia criminal court.The witness recognised a deposition he had provided to police on March 23, 2016 in which he referred to his relationship with Pantelitsa Mappoura, an accountant for Helector.He told the court that he and Mappoura hailed from the same village, and that their professional association was restricted to resolving errors concerning the quantities of waste logged, which Mappoura would proceed to correct.The court heard that during his deposition to police, Petrou was shown a number of invoices made out in his name and showing him as the beneficiary/recipient of €46,000.Petrou said he was shocked on seeing these figures and that he had no idea what they were about.His shock was so great that he required psychological therapy, he added. Later, with help from his therapist, he managed to recall that during a Christmas holiday season he had received a bonus from Mappoura for overtime work he had put in.Under cross-examination by the lawyer of the defendant Demetris Patsalides (Paphos municipality’s former financial director), Petrou stated that the only amount he ever received from Mappoura was €200 or €300 for overtime work.He did not recall the sum initially, but later remembered having overcome his shock because of the documents shown to him by the police.Asked why he did not immediately tell the police about the €200 once he did recall this, Petrou said he was wary of going to the authorities.Petrou was also asked why he would sign the invoices in question as ‘Petros Andreou’ rather than with his real name, and whether Mappoura had asked him to do so.The witness said that Mappoura had indeed asked him to sign with a different name; she had also told him that the bonus would be credited to another employee in her company.Grilling Petrou, the defence lawyer submitted to the witness that he was not telling the truth and that he and Mappoura had come to a certain arrangement.The trial continues.The case concerns the overcharging of municipal authorities for waste management services and the alleged bribery of officials.Former Paphos mayor Savvas Vergas, Helector’s former CEO Demetris Giannakopoulos, interior ministry official Christakis Petrou, engineer Imad Bagle and former Paphos Sewerage Board director Eftichios Malekkides have already pleaded guilty. You May LikeExciting Magazine15 Tricks To Look YoungerExciting MagazineUndoTheDeliteKate Middleton Just Got An Anniversary Gift From The Queen That Is Beyond PriceTheDeliteUndoTripsaver.TravelDelta Airline Flights From Only $69.99 One-Way!Tripsaver.TravelUndo Modi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoLicences for ENI and Total to explore block sevenUndoFour dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Feinstein is a lean mean spybusting machine The longtime California Senator and Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee publicly turned on the CIA Tuesday when she accused the spy agency of illegally hacking into Senate computers used to investigate Bush-era intelligence practices But this isn’t the first time Feinstein has spoken truth to power Here are a few of her greatest hits: 1) You wouldn’t know it from her speech Tuesday but Feinstein had a late night Monday night That’s because the octogenarian was part of an all-night congressional session to raise awareness about climate change "If we do nothing the Sierra Nevada spring snowpack could drop by as much as 60 to 80 percent by the end of the century eliminating the water source for nearly 16 million people" the Senator said 2) It was Feinstein who tried to push an assault weapons ban through Congress after the Newtown shootings but her ban failed in a 40-60 vote In her final appeal to her colleagues to vote to ban assault weapons she demanded that the rest of the Senate “show some guts” “The most important duty a government has is to protect its citizens safety” she said “When 20 beautiful first-graders are slaughtered our government has failed that duty" She spoke next to an image of the front page of the New York Daily News that read “Shame on US” 3) In her continued fight for an assault weapons ban Feinstein delivered an epic takedown of colleague Ted Cruz when he tried to mansplain the Constitution to her (via Daily Beast) “One I’m not a sixth grader” Feinstein said “Senator I’ve been on this Committee for 20 years I was a mayor for nine years I walked in and I saw people shot with these weapons “I’m not a lawyer” she added “but after 20 years I’ve been up close and personal with the Constitution I have great respect for it … So I you know it’s fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution I appreciate it Just know I’ve been here for a long time” “I thank you for the lecture

George Moscone and she was there the day they were assassinated by ex-supervisor Dan White in 1978 White murdered Milk and Moscone because he wanted his government seat back and when Feinstein learned that Moscone was planning to give it to someone else she tried to track down White to explain the situation She described that day to the San Francisco Chronicle: “I saw him come in I said ‘Dan can I talk to you’ And he went by and I heard the door close and I heard the shots and smelled the cordite and I came out of my office Dan went right by me Nobody was around every door was closed “I went down the hall I opened the wrong door I opened (Milk’s) door I found Harvey on his stomach I tried to get a pulse and put my finger through a bullet hole He was clearly dead” Feinstein later went on to replace Moscone as Mayor of San Francisco MORE: Top Lawmaker Accuses CIA of Illegally Snooping on Senate 5) She’s also a peacemaker: Feinstein hosted the first meeting between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama after Obama nabbed the 2008 nomination She set up two chairs and put out some water and then left the candidates alone to talk it out: “You know this is a deeply personal time too You are sorting out your feelings Hillarys is going to be giving a big speech tomorrow Barack is trying to put things together for a major presidential campaign So there are a lot of decompression
