    Part of the collection I've been talking about for a while now of female models which I said were set in the fifties. Among them happens to be this wonderful piece.
    ___
    As usual, I was going through my gallery when I suddenly spotted this. The hair was vague and the contrast was so high that many details in the background were lost to the eyes. I guess that was why I never really tried it.
    ___
    But upon closer inspection, I noticed a masterpiece which I most certainly want to explore and without hesitation, I did.

  • Introduction
    We cannot live quietly on a simple day in the realm of crypto without noises and turbulence. The market is boring and flat lately, but we have a lot of action with the SEC!
    Their purpose and mission is to protect customers' money. In reality, now they are attacking crypto companies without clarity. It is wrongdoing what they are trying to accomplish personally.
    Crypto companies beg for years for clear regulations in the crypto sector. You see the EU, have some advance with the MICA framework.
    Better to have something than nothing!
    Binance vs SEC
    The modus operandi is always the same as the SEC behavior. Binance keeps doing business as usual and received a letter stipulating what they have done wrong.
    Some crypto traded on their platform from the SEC perspective are considered securities. It is not clear what is the real definition of security for crypto with the regulations that exist today.
    We need to have a new and clear framework in place for cryptoassets like tokens, NFTs, etc... You cannot interpret the way you think is right and attack without any notice crypto companies that want to be legit.
    Those companies bring innovation with a lot of value for crypto investors. They provide a way for people to purchase, sell, and build wealth easily without the need to think too much.
    It is already a difficult ecosystem to master for a typical investor who just wants to have a presence in the crypto realm...
    Immediate consequences of this attack from the SEC
    From the headlines I check rapidly in the last 24 hours, 700 million was removed from the Binance liquidity. This reaction is people are scared of not being able to access their funds in the worst-case scenario.
    What people have not learned!
    You just leave crypto assets that intend you to trade. Not assets that you keep for the long term. It is not the first or last behavior like this we are going to expect.
    Bitcoin has crashed from this market sentiment. When BTC is in the red, the rest of the market follows the pattern!
    We love the volatility!
    If you can't handle it, you are in the wrong market...
    What to expect next?
    This is a legal battle that can take years before something can materialize. Those legal fees from the government are paid with people's taxes...
    In the case of Binance, I believe you can reduce the legal fees from your business expense. But I am not quite sure...
    This is very costly for a company to battle because you need to hire the best layers. You need to fight with the interpretation of words and laws in place.
    The results are years of energy spending, stress, and suffering for the crypto industry.
    The US seems to fight for innovation in its territory and make sure crypto is moving to other international jurisdictions.
    My perspective
    I believe is not good for the whole industry's constant attacks from the SEC entity. No matter what they are trying it will not change the path of crypto penetration and prosperity.
    People understand the risk of crypto and if they intend to purchase them. They know the risks and rewards associated with it.
    I hope this battle will not last years and both parties can find a fast settlement.
    PS: It is my personal opinion and I am not a financial advisor. Always do your own research.

  • Since the day I joined Hive, I've learned a lot of new stuff. That was in August 2021. I was startled to read taskmaster4450's article about the exponential age because I had never seen such a viewpoint before. It appears as though the author is from another planet.
    Then, from August 2021 to February 2022, I wandered around Hive without realizing the fantastic possibility that this emerging blockchain was offering. Things didn't start making sense until March 2022.
    Beginning that month, my learning process on Hive has increased significantly. You know learning and applying new ideas isn’t easy, especially for an aging man like me. They say it’s really difficult to teach an old dog new tricks.
    Nevertheless, I had several first-time experiences since that month. I think that’s the first and major transition that shaped the way how I grew in my understanding of Hive.
    Participating in LEO Power Up Day (LPUD), buying CUB, joining listnerds.com and @bradleyarrow’s curation trail, and writing about CENT are the new things I learned since that month. That was one year and three months ago.
    The LeoThreads widespread adoption effort launched on May 1 is at a different stage of development from the growth I mentioned above. The image that comes to mind is a price increase brought on by a significant trend.

    My Hive activity has undergone a significant transformation after the release of LeoThreads on https://leofinance.io/ version 2 (Note: I am at a loss for words to characterize the current condition of LeoFinance). The first thing I now do every day is check the threads. Before, it wasn't like this. Naturally, there are drawbacks to this, such as a tendency to overlook important Hive events like HIVE Power Up Day and writing lengthy content.
    Before the launch of LeoThreads, I have been describing myself as a “treader” though I didn’t make an official announcement about it on social media. My definition of a treader is inspired by a combination of three ideas: walking cautiously, trading, and reading. For non-native English speakers, these two words: “treader” and “threader” might sound the same.
    The latter refers to microblogging and I love it because its content is not confined to a single category; it is open to all types of content. As such, threads make engagement spontaneous and online learning more easily digestible.
    Reasons Why I am Bullish on LEO
    Serving as an alternative to a centralized microblogging platform like Twitter is a good start but not enough.
    The 10,000 USD prize pool that will be distributed within five days from now somehow made the Leo community excited. However, such excitement is short-term if not matched with a long-term vision of the growth and sustainability of the Leo projects.
    Except for the above reasons I mentioned such as microblogging providing an avenue for instant conversation and digestible content, as a Web3 alternative, and the 10,000 USD incentive, the additional reasons why I am bullish on LEO are as follows:
    Last 05 May, I wrote what I believe to be the benefits of making threads. I mentioned there how I agreed with this idea that the bigger transactions on the chain work to the advantage of the Hive network, the Leo tribe, and our tokens.
    Another reason is related to ad revenue. If the income from advertising will be returned to the LEO token, in such a scenario, all LEO holders win.
    A third reason would be LeoThreads operating as a communication hub for all the tribes within the Hive network. As such, threads can be an avenue for your content to find a wider audience.
    Still, another reason is the potential for micro-earnings. We cannot underestimate the power of small things. All big changes in one way or another started with small steps.
    Closely connected to crypto earning, I think if the recent idea suggested by @taskmaster4450 about the collateralization of the LEO assets will be considered for implementation, we have a solid reason to be exceedingly excited about the future of our platform. Given the fact that the world is in bad need of quality collateral as TM repeatedly argues, I think the LeoFinance can enter that space to fill up such a demand.
    Above all, I enjoy the fun of threading in connecting to other Hivers, lions, and other tribes. To conclude this post, I agree with @meitanteikudo’s poetical description of threads:

    a joyful playground, a joyous meeting where everyone’s voice is heard, a friendly tour guide, a vibrant marketplace of perspectives, and even radiant stars that shine brightly in the LeoFinance galaxy.

    Grace and peace!

  • Ah, the joys of working from home!

    For me it's a delightful dance between productivity and domesticity, where the mundane office routine gets swapped out for the whirlwind of crazy household tasks. Let me tell you about my full working day, during which I managed to finish a home marathon while also conquering the world of emails.
    As I settled into my makeshift home office, armed with a steaming cup of tea and a determined spirit, the universe decided to test my multitasking skills. Amidst answering a seemingly endless list of emails, the washing machine beckoned me with a siren song of soiled laundry. How could I resist its call? With one hand typing furiously and the other expertly loading clothes into the machine, I transformed into a symphony conductor, orchestrating the perfect balance between work and chores.
    It was now time for a quick lunch after starting the laundry. Oh, the luxury of being close to a kitchen! In record time, I cooked up a culinary masterpiece (or at least something edible), enjoying the mouthwatering tastes as my laptop watched in silence, wondering when it would get a taste of my culinary talent. Unfortunately, it had to be content with the scraps of my success.
    Back at my desk, I marvelled at the passage of time. The day seemed to fly by, propelled by the whirlwind of tasks both professional and domestic. Yet, amidst the chaos, a strange harmony emerged. I was a productivity guru in the office, a domestic wizard in the kitchen, and a master of all trades (well, most trades) in my humble abode.
    Sure, my work-from-home escapades may seem like a juggling act of epic proportions. I may have accidentally sent a laundry-related email or almost boil my earphones with the noodles (don't ask how). But through it all, I found solace in the fact that my day was a productive one, not just in conquering deadlines and conquering laundry stains, but also in embracing the delightful absurdity that comes with blending work and home life.

    So, here's to the work-from-home warriors, the masters of multitasking, and the champions of the chaos. May your emails be eloquent, your washing machines be efficient, and your tea always be within arm's reach. After all, in the realm of productivity, there's nothing quite like the symphony of clacking keys, spinning laundry, and a perfectly brewed cup of tea to make the day go by in a whirlwind of hilarity and accomplishment.
    Have a prosperous Thursday everyone!

  • "No piece of art has ever emotionally affected me the way this robot arm piece has. It's programmed to try to contain the hydraulic fluid that’s constantly leaking out and required to keep itself running...if too much escapes, it will die so it's desperately trying to pull it back to continue to fight for another day. Saddest part is they gave the robot the ability to do these 'happy dances' to spectators. When the project was first launched it danced around spending most of its time interacting with the crowd since it could quickly pull back the small spillage. Many years later... (as you see it now in the photo) it looks tired and hopeless as there isn't enough time to dance anymore.. It now only has enough time to try to keep itself alive as the amount of leaked hydraulic fluid became unmanageable as the spill grew over time. Living its last days in a never-ending cycle between sustaining life and simultaneously bleeding out... (Figuratively and literally as its hydraulic fluid was purposefully made to look like it's actual blood).
    "The robot arm finally ran out of hydraulic fluid in 2019, slowly came to a halt and died - And I am now tearing up over a friggin robot arm It was programmed to live out this fate and no matter what it did or how hard it tried, there was no escaping it. Spectators watched as it slowly bled out until the day that it ceased to move forever. Saying that 'this resonates' doesn't even do it justice imo. Created by Sun Yuan & Peng Yu, they named the piece, 'Can't Help Myself'. What a masterpiece. What a message."
    Extended interpretations: the hydraulic fluid in relation to how we kill ourselves both mentally and physically for money just in an attempt to sustain life, how the system is set up for us to fail on purpose to essentially enslave us and to steal the best years of our lives to play the game that the richest people of the world have designed. How this robs us of our happiness, passion and our inner peace. How we are slowly drowning with more responsibilities, with more expected of us, less rewarding pay-offs and less free time to enjoy ourselves with as the years go by. How there's really no escaping the system and that we were destined at birth to follow a pretty specific path that was already laid out before us. How we can give and give and give and how easily we can be forgotten after we've gone.. How we are loved and respected when we are valuable, then one day we aren't any longer and we become a burden...and how our young, free-caring spirit gets stolen from us as we get churned out of the broken system that we are trapped inside of. Can also be seen to represent the human life cycle and the fact that none of us make it out of this world alive. But also can act as a reminder to allow yourself to heal, rest and love with all of your heart. That the endless chase for 'more' isn't necessary in finding your own inner happiness.”

  • Homebrewers will soon be able to time travel with their taste buds and brew beer similar to what the Philistines in Goliath’s hometown of Gath drank. Israel Antiquities Authority - used with permission An interdisciplinary team of researchers, archaeologists and brewmasters in Israel first isolated 5,000-year-old yeast in 2019, as published in the peer-reviewed mBio journal in 2019. But now, the fruits of that discovery are about to become available for hobby brewers and sourdough aficionados everywhere, when the first batch of commercially available ancient yeast ships in December. Pre-orders are open now.

    “We want to create an opportunity for every person to connect with this story, with the past, that we as a civilization have carried on for tens of thousands of years since we started fermenting,” said brewmaster Itai Gutman, who previously owned a brewery in Jerusalem and now is the CEO of Primer’s Yeast, the company that is selling the ancient yeast.

    gmfrens everyone!
    Let me suspend for a while my supposed-to-be second article on The Way to Financial Freedom Part 2 and give way to crypto and economics-related content. I decided to do it this way to submit an entry either to the Economics Writer Quest or in the Crypto Writer Quest or to which is more suitable as part of the Zealy campaign. To achieve this, I revisited the articles I published in June of 2022 about the Eurodollar market. In this post, I want to refresh myself on the insights I gleaned from the first chapter of the book, Eurodollars and International Banking, edited by Paolo Savona and George Sutija. Moreover, after giving an overview, I also intend to reintroduce some lessons relevant to the crypto space.
    To accomplish the above goal, let me share first what @taskmaster4450 keeps saying about the relationship between the Eurodollar market and cryptocurrency. In fact, outside of Hive and the Leofinance community, I never heard of the Eurodollar market. It was my first time, hearing about the subject as I entered the crypto space in July of 2021. He keeps reminding us that for us to understand the character of cryptocurrency, we should first understand the Eurodollar market that provided its very backdrop.
    At the outset, what I found fascinating is that I received a confirmation from the so-called authority figures in international banking that indeed the operation of Eurocurrencies is “outside the jurisdictions of national governments.” This is an insight that I never stumbled upon reading books on economics, of course except the current one under study.
    Another startling discovery is the admission that the Eurodollar market is not a separate “banking system,” but an extension of the banking systems of major countries. Hence, the name “international banking” and “offshore banking” have been used to describe this market.
    As such, the Eurodollar market plays a significant role in international finance due to the financial innovations it created and its impact “on domestic banking systems, on domestic monetary policies, . . . on inflation, interest rates and the distribution of credit” (p. 43).
    Now, how did the Eurodollar market originate?
    The birth of the Eurodollar market was associated with a certain “Dregasovitch” (p. 27) and its earlier names were diverse such as “Embark dollars,” “Continental dollars,” or simply “foreign market dollars” (ibid.). The first transaction happened in 1957 when Moscow Narodny Bank issued an $800,000 loan through a London commercial bank (ibid.). As such, in that year, “a new and original, international money market in short-term dollars and other currencies emerged in London” (p. 28).
    A few of the unique features of the Eurodollar market include interbank huge transactions, basically unregulated, and “receives funds from everywhere to make loans to everywhere” (p.32). The clients involved in the market are commercial banks, central banks, transnational corporations, and some very wealthy individuals. Reserve requirements are not strictly implemented, which logically results in the expansion of loans. Transactions are secret and taxes are lax.
    For Rene P. Higonnet, the presenter of the first paper, the above qualities spell huge problems. He identified the Eurodollar market as primarily responsible for the existing crisis in international finance due to the absence of accurate information, easing of strict banking practices, impulsive and unsound banking policies, and evasion of responsibility on the part of central banks.
    To address the problems caused by the Eurodollar system, the proposal is to come up with a stricter form of regulation and supervision of Euro banks. Such a proposal entails better accounting practices, regulation of foreign lending, and supervision of all offshore banking centers. The responsibility to implement such a proposal will fall into the hands of an international committee of wise men selected from central bankers, commercial bankers, and economists (p. 43).
    And so that’s the overview of the article I published in June of 2022.
    Let us now turn to the lessons we can learn based on the foregoing information that is relevant to the crypto space, and I just want to mention three:
    First, we learn from reading such a brief background of the Eurodollar market that it is indeed outside of national jurisdiction and unregulated. Cryptocurrency is simply following such a path. The identified characteristics are shared by both the Eurodollar market and cryptocurrency.
    Currently, we now see nations that are pro-crypto and nations that are anti-crypto. The main issue is regulation.
    As the record shows, national governments failed in implementing this task to regulate the Eurodollar market for 65 years. Will they be successful this time in regulating cryptocurrency? What do you think?
    As far as authorities on international finance are concerned, what we know is that the pro-regulation group is in the minority, at least as far as the Eurodollar market is concerned.
    The second insight has something to do with the importance of the Eurodollar market in international finance. Many of the features found in the Eurodollar market can also be seen in cryptocurrency. In the current status of the latter, we admit that in terms of size, the crypto market is still very small compared to other financial markets. Nevertheless, in the area of innovation and distribution, I think cryptocurrency deserves credit. As to its long-term influence on both national and international banking, monetary policies, and inflation, we still have to wait and see.
    Last but not least is the difference and resemblance between the two regarding stability and volatility respecting fiat currency. Even advocates of cryptocurrency are divided concerning this issue. Some think that the explosive growth happening in cryptocurrency is a threat to destabilizing the world of legacy finance. Others opine that such growth is insignificant due to the gigantic size of traditional finance. From my perspective, I see it as a threat and that’s why the regulation voice is getting louder but I firmly believe that from a long-term standpoint, cryptocurrency will introduce abundance into the global economy. The only difference is that it will no longer be exclusionary just as what we have right now.
    Grace and peace!

    Few weeks ago my brother came back from school and during one of our discussions he asked if I'd seen one of Tom Hanks latest movie. It was titled; **'A Man Called Otto'**. The movie was interesting, quite the Tom Hanks way.
    I really loved how the writers used simple humour to spice up the whole thing.
    ___
    Tom Hanks used to be my favorite actor and there was a time I went hunting for all his movies and made sure I saw them. But now, I'm a liberal artist and believe all artwork is a masterpiece of its own and subjectivity though strange is beautiful (as long as it's not extreme).
    ___
    I was very clueless as to what to do today because I had no access to light and was extremely tired. So when I noticed I was overly being lazy I grabbed a pen and tried making a sketch.
    Luckily, I found this in the gallery of one of my abandoned devices.
    It's a drawing from way back by another artist.

    Few weeks ago my brother came back from school and during one of our discussions he asked if I'd seen one of Tom Hanks latest movie. It was titled; **'A Man Called Otto'**. The movie was interesting, quite the Tom Hanks way.
    I really loved how the writers used simple humour to spice up the whole thing.
    ___
    Tom Hanks used to be my favorite actor and there was a time I went hunting for all his movies and made sure I saw them. But now, I'm a liberal artist and believe all artwork is a masterpiece of its own and subjectivity though strange is beautiful (as long as it's not extreme).
    ___
    I was very clueless as to what to do today because I had no access to light and was extremely tired. So when I noticed I was overly being lazy I grabbed a pen and tried making a sketch.
    Luckily, I found this in the gallery of one of my abandoned devices.
    It's a drawing from way back by another artist.
