Another week, another round of Crypto Tidbits. The past seven days were rather painful for Bitcoin (BTC), with the leading cryptocurrency tumbling by some 4% according to Coin360. Altcoins have posted similar losses. As of the time of writing this, BTC is trading for $8,500, seemingly poised to break down further as bulls fail to step in.Regardless of the price action, though, the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry saw a number of positive developments: reports indicated that Canada ''s largest bank is looking to embrace Bitcoin, China ''s foremost news outlet, which is state run, mentioned Bitcoin in an article, and Ethereum ''s decentralized finance ecosystem has been gaining traction.
Ethereum s price action has been closely mirroring that of Bitcoin s in recent times, which has made it prone to seeing heightened levels of selling pressure in spite of ETH;s multiple recent attempts to break above its long established resistance level at $190.This selling pressure has sent ETH down to the lower $180 region while also causing it to form some fresh resistance levels directly above its current price, which could send it reeling lower in the near term.

Arnold Vosloo is an actor with both South African citizenship and American citizenship. For a lot of people, he will be most familiar to them because of his role as Imhotep in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. However, Vosloo has played a wide range of characters in a wide range of other projects as well. Here are 10 things that you may or may not have known about Arnold Vosloo:Vosloo was born in Pretoria, which is one of South Africa ''s three capital cities. For those who are curious, Pretoria is the administrative capital while Cape Town and Bloemfontein are the legislative and judicial capitals respectively. Sometimes, it is called the Jacaranda City because of the widespread presence of a sub tropical tree that bears beautiful, long lasting flowers that come in an incredible indigo hue.
After the cold fall winds swirling around Hurricane Sandy pushed an enormous storm surge toward the New York and New Jersey coastlines several years ago, the ensuing damage left an indelible imprint on the public imagination. Restaurants with ocean views were battered by wild waves, homes were rent asunder, and historic lighthouses were pummeled into piles of rubble. New York City was paralyzed for days, and some 40,000 people were left homeless.The dramatic destruction garnered 24 hour media coverage, but the damage to international trade slipped more quietly under the radar. No TV cameras captured the storm waters as they swelled over the quays surrounding the Port of New York and New Jersey or as they surged through operations centers, knocking computers, power transformers, and cargo control systems off line. Scant attention was paid to the goods containers strewn like toys around the marine terminals or to the gantry cranes left inoperable by saltwater damage. For a week, container ships laden with cargo floated aimlessly in the calmed harbor while responders scrambled to repair the damage.

WhatsApp is known for actively developing multiple features simultaneously, and testing them for months before releasing them for the general public. The popular instant messaging platform has been working on big features like dark mode, a new multi platform system, and new UI elements this year. It brought along features like improved group privacy settings, fingerprint unlock feature, and even Netflix trailer in app streaming support this year. WhatsApp and Facebook integration was initiated with the introduction of a new feature called Share to Facebook Story. It essentially lets you share your status on Facebook, if you so prefer to do so.This, and many more WhatsApp features were rolled out, or are being tested this year. Here''s a rundown of all them. Before we proceed, we've segregated this post into three sections features that have already been rolled out and are available for commercial use, features that are being tested in beta, and features that were spotted in to be under development and haven''t been enabled for beta testing as of yet. The last option is the most ambiguous, and some of the features mentioned there may or may not make it to the testing phase. For that matter, some features mentioned in the beta section may also never see the light of the day in a stable rollout.

Are we alone? Humans have a lot of questions about alien life. But those beings, if they exist, likely have some questions of their own about humans, queries we may want to answer before we find any life beyond Earth.
Just like its elder sibling, the Infinix S5, this Lite model sports a hole punch display. This type of display has been a feature on some flagship devices, and hasn''t even trickled down to a lot of mid range smartphones yet, so we weren''t expecting to see one on a phone priced at Rs. 7,999 just yet. How good is the display, and has Infinix cut other corners to deliver this feature at such an aggressive price? We put the Infinix S5 Lite to the test to find out.The Infinix S5 Lite looks a lot like the Infinix S5 (Review), and it will be impossible to distinguish between the two when looking at them from the front. A 6.6 inch display dominates the face of this smartphone, and Infinix claims a 90.5 percent screen to body ratio. The company has opted for a 20:9 aspect ratio which isn''t very common at this price point either. The IPS display panel has decent viewing angles but we found it to be low on brightness. The device also lacks an ambient light sensor, just like the Inifinix S5, which could be a big problem. You'll need to adjust brightness manually all the time. The camera hole is on the top left corner. Also, for what it''s worth, the front camera wasn''t perfectly centred within its hole on our review unit.

WhatsApp for iPhone app beta version 18.104.22.168 brings all the redesign elements, including profile photo logo, some icons, and even read receipts. References of the new multi platform system have been found in the latest WhatsApp for iPhone beta as well.
Key point: Yet Germany was left too destitute to implement its plans. In 1917, even as Germany began to prepare to launch what it expected to be war winning offensives in the Atlantic and in France, its naval architects began to think about the postwar naval balance. Even if Germany could knock out France and Italy as great powers, it could only defeat Britain by applying economic pain, and that pain would end when the guns fell silent. Thus, Germany could look forward to renewed naval competition with the British, and almost certainly the Americans. Accordingly, the Germans developed designs for the advanced battlecruisers and battleships that would have become the new High Seas Fleet if Germany had won the war. Strategic Stage Until mid 1918, Germany expected to win the war, and expected that its future security threats would come primarily from maritime powers, namely the United States and the United Kingdom. Germany would win territorial and political concessions in the east and the west, and might be able to recover some of its colonial territories (or perhaps take some from France and Italy. Consequently, Germany would need a competitive surface fleet in addition to its U boats. The war had slowed capital ship construction in Britain and Germany (although notably not in Japan or the United States), and existing German ships were quickly approaching obsolescence. The only super dreadnoughts immediately available to the Germans would have been the four ships of the Bayern class (in reality, only two of the ships were completed) and the seven battlecruisers of the Mackensen class and Yorck class (of which none were completed). The Bayerns could make twenty one knots, and carried eight 15 guns on a 32,000 ton displacement. Both the Mackensen and Yorck classes were a major step up from the pre war battlecruisers. The Mackensen s carried eight 13.8 guns on a 36,000 ton displacement, with a speed of twenty eight knots, while the Yorcks would have carried eight 15 guns, displaced 38,000 tons, and made twenty seven knots. Against this, the Kaiserliche Marine faced twenty one British super dreadnoughts and four modern battlecruisers, along with another thirteen American super dreadnoughts. Both the British and the Americans threw themselves into post war construction, with the latter planning seven more battleships and six battlecruisers, and the former four battleships and four battlecruisers. Having won the war, Germany would have immediately faced a very threatening maritime environment. The L20e class was the beginning of the solution. Displacing 48,000 tons, the L20e would have carried eight 16.5 guns in four twin turrets and made twenty six knots. The L20e would have been roughly the same size as the proposed British N3 class, which traded three knots of speed for a much heavier main armament (9 18 guns in three triple turrets). The American South Dakotas would also have tipped the scales at 48,000 tons, with a speed of 23 knots, but would have carried twelve 16 guns in four triple turrets. The concentration on speed suggests that the German were prepping for a fast battleship squadron, similar in many ways to that of the Japanese. Japan s Nagato and (planned) Tosa class battleships could make twenty six knots; the successor Kii class would have made nearly thirty. In contrast to the British and American approaches, there was to be little gap between the fast battlecruisers and the slow battleships. Germany s decision on this point may have stemmed from lessons learned in the Battle of Jutland, where its battlecruisers endured enormous punishment while taking limited losses. It is likely a decision that would have paid off down the line; the slow battleships of the USN and RN were notably limited in the Second World War. Wrap In the real world, Germany was beaten, the High Seas Fleet was scuttled at Scapa, and the three great naval powers settled their differences with the Washington Naval Treaty. That treaty sharply limited naval construction, prohibiting the construction of an entire generation of new battleships. It offered a naval holiday that gave the people of the world a much needed rest after several years of bitter conflict. The Washington Naval Treaty was a means of managing competition between recent allies who could foresee conflict on the horizon. Had Germany won the war, relations with both the United States and the United Kingdom would have remained tense. Under these circumstances it is difficult to imagine how Germany would have participated in a multilateral arms control agreement like the Washington Naval Treaty. Having just escaped the Great War (and the influenza that followed it) the world would almost immediately have been thrown into another great naval race. This would have produced an altogether more dangerous world, with four different great powers struggling for maritime dominance.

Q. Can you describe the Hidden Harvest mission?In August, area farmers donated more than 20,000 pounds of sweet corn to Hidden Harvest.Hidden Harvest was started by the Saginaw Community Foundation in partnership with Good Neighbors Mission in 1994. The whole concept of community foundations is using the resources of philanthropists in the community to give to specific agencies. The Saginaw Community Foundation had heard about food rescue organizations in other parts of the country and brought it back here. Rescuing food is another way to give back. For the agencies that we work with, we saved over $6 million in the last fiscal year. Those agencies are able to do good things with that money. They 're advocating for women who 've been abused or people who need long term housing or someone going through substance abuse treatment. Their missions are greater than food. We can help take this resource that ''s already in the system ndash; from restaurants, grocery stores, farmers, bakeries ndash; and get it to these agencies that are really doing great things in our communities. Q. How did you become involved in Hidden Harvest? A. I 've been president of Hidden Harvest for about 3 frac12; years now. Before that, I was the executive director of the Hospital Hospitality Houses of Saginaw, so we housed families who had loved ones in the hospital. A lot of times people just got into the back of an ambulance with their spouse and didn ''t think a bit about their own needs. We were able to provide meals because of Hidden Harvest ''s kindness toward our organization. Now, I get to help 170 different non profits throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region to help provide meals, and that ''s awesome.

MGM continues to look to shed properties, as Bloomberg is reporting that MGM Resorts International and MGM Growth Properties LLC, a real estate investment trust spinoff, are looking for an investor to buy the MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay. Bloomberg s sources provided little detail and MGM Growth Properties did not comment on the matter, but Bloomberg said the deal MGM Resorts and MGM Growth are looking for with an investor is some sort of joint venture. It would almost certainly involve a lease back structure.
