As highlighted via Twitter by Hacker Noon contributor Grubles (@notgrubles) earlier, the 25 year old Ethereum co founder originally used the phrase in November 2014.
Ethereum is up more than 15% and it broke the key $150 and $160 hurdles versus the US Dollar, while bitcoin jumped above $8,800. However, the current price action suggests ETH could correct towards $160 before it continues higher.Yesterday, we discussed the chances of an upside break in Ethereum above the $148 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH price did climb above the $148 and $150 resistance levels, opening the doors for a sharp rise.
Ethereum and the aggregated crypto markets have rallied over the past 24 hours, catching the massive upwards tailwind created by Bitcoin s surge to highs of $8,800. This rally has led ETH to climb into the $150 region as it outperforms BTC and many other major altcoins.Over a larger time frame, analysts are noting that Ethereum s recent bullishness and its ability to establish the $120 region as a potential bottom opens the gates for significantly further gains, which could lead the crypto to surge as much as 80% by May of this year.

TwitterPinterestPhoto: Courtesy of Everett Collection NetflixFacebookTwitterPinterestThe nominations for the 92nd annual Academy Awards were announced Monday morning, and while there were some definite highlights (Florence Pugh, Parasite s sweep), it was a pretty poor showing for...well, anyone other than straight white men.Following in the Golden Globes footsteps, the academy didn t name a single woman in the best director category. Arguably even more jarring was the fact that zero performers of color were nominated in the best supporting actor and best supporting actress categories, though after past #OscarsSoWhite controversies, maybe we should collectively agree to keep our hopes ground level. How else to deal with the fact that 8 out of the 10 best supporting actress and best lead actress nominations went to blonde, Caucasian women in a year when Jennifer Lopez and Awkwafina gave career defining performances, not to mention So dam Park s breakout turn in Parasite?

It takes a special type of person to become the partner of a high powered tech executive: From long weeks at work to intense stress, the spouses of CEOs have probably seen it all. Like most other industries, many of the top executives in tech are partnered up. Not all of them are married ndash; Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Apple CEO Tim Cook appear to be single, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has an on again, off again relationship with singer Grimes, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is newly divorced and back in the dating game.

He has been invited to the Capital for the exhibition Desi Oon , organised by Khamir, a platform formed after the 2001 Gujarat earthquake to preserve the crafts and heritage of Kutch. The exhibition delves into sheep pastoralism and the processes of producing indigenous wool. It acquaints visitors with the techniques of spinning, dyeing and weaving indigenous wool by bringing in weavers, spinners, dyers, designers and members from the herding community in Kutch to an urban setting. Having arrived with his range of shawls, stoles and bed covers made from native wool, Vankar Shamji, one of the leading weavers of Kutch, believes it is important to hold such events to acquaint people with native sheep wool and the processes of generating it. He says, The use of local sheep wool has dwindled and people have begun throwing it. It is compulsory to cut the hair of sheep every six months to save it from insects. If such events are held and people get to know the value of local sheep wool and the immense warmth it offers, only then this wool can be saved from being thrown away. Rana Bhai s biggest complaint is that giving land away to industries has resulted in no space for cattle to graze.A weaver from Kandherai village, Babubhai Ladhubhai Padhiyar is displaying his signature Dhabda (traditional thick blankets), made from sheep wool. These are carried by herding men to cover themselves. Each takes at least 15 days to make and weighs four kg. Padhiyar tells us that these are also used by ethnic groups such as the Rabaris and Ahirs during marriages. Before plastic became a norm, people also used these to cover themselves during rains, as water wouldn t seep through this blanket, he adds. Padhiyar is one of the few remaining weavers of Dhabda. He says, Now there is little demand and there are very few Dhabda weaving looms. My village only has two, compared to 22 looms that existed earlier. In Delhi, one of his Dhabdas, costing Rs 25,000, found a buyer as soon as the show opened.
