Bitcoins world

Well, today almost everybody knows what Bitcoin is. Ay least, everybody has head about such fantastic things as Bitcoins, cryptocurrency, mining etc. Yes, Bitcoin is a type of digital currency, created and held electronically only.

Acryally this is the first decentralized new worldwide and digital payment system allowed users to send or receive any amount of money anywhere in the world, and these payments cannot be controlled, blocked, or frozen by anyone.

No one can control the process but users who send their bitcoins from their own Bitcoin addresses without any control from the side of any third party like a bank or paypal .

You see, Bitcoins are not printed like dollars or any other common curency. The modern currency is created by people, through the “mining” process with running computers all around the world, and using special software that solves some mathematical tasks.

Every time when you solve the mathematical problem successfully you mine block reward – very small portion of a Bitcoin. This is the only way that new bitcoins are created.

Today almost everywhere you go, you can see Bitcoin is popping up more and more. Sure, it’s important to understand all basics of bitcoin, to learn well the details of bitcoin creation, transactions and security issues then you can navigate through by your own, creating your own bitcoins and use them the way you love. You can trade your cryptocoins online, peer to peer, and use them for a variety of goods and services. It’s like your internet cash.

But the way of making Bitcoin payments is much easier and shorter than you usually do it paying with your debit or credit card. Even you don’t need a merchant account. You just make your payment from a wallet application on your computer or smartphone, by typing the recipient’s address, the payment amount, and pressing send. Also using QR code you can make transaction just with touching two phones together with NFC technology.

There are a growing number of businesses and individuals which are using Bitcoin. Modern currency is accepted now in brick-and-mortar businesses, restaurants, law firms, apartments, as well as many popular online services such as Bitcoin casino have started to accept the virtual currency.

That’s really fantastic! Even though we’re still at the beginning of the way now, it looks like the virtual currency already represents the future.

Android Robot cops take streets

Reportedly Android Robot cops will patrol the streets of Dubai soon to keep trace along with the actual city’s police force. The latest prototypes have been unveiled at the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition.

What do you really think about? Is it really good or not so? If not please let me know why?

NACA press event

Reportedly NASA have to say something important and host special conference on discovery beyond our solar system.

“NASA will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. EST Wednesday, Feb. 22, to present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets. The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.” – NASA.

What we would expect? I guess a small movement on the way of space studying but not something about aliens as may be you thought. However we remember Canada’s former minister of defence Paul Hellyer who started to talk out about that. He said:

” In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. There’s been a lot more activity in the past two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb. They are very concerned about that and if we will use it again, because the whole cosmos is a unity and it affects not just us but other people in the cosmos. They’re very much afraid that we might start using atomic weapons again and this would be very bad for us, and them also.” – Paul Hellyer

“Many are benign and benevolent, and a few are not. They come from various places, for a long while I only knew about ones that came from different star systems, the Pleadies. There are extraterrestrials that come from Andromeda, and ones that live on one of Saturn’s moon’s. There is a federation of these people, and they have rules, one of them is that they don’t interfere with our affairs unless they are invited. They have accepted the fact that this is our planet, and we have the right to run it but they are very concerned, they don’t think that we are good stewards of our planet. We are ruining our planet, we’re doing all sorts of things that we shouldn’t be doing, and they don’t like that. They’ve made it clear, and they have given us a warning.” – Paul Hellyer

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. It is ironic that the US should be fighting monstrously expensive wars, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.”

Deep water discovered towards Earth’s core

“This water is much deeper than ever found before, at a third of the way to the edge of Earth’s core”

“If it wasn’t down there, we would all be submerged,” says Steve Jacobsen at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Northwestern geophysicist Steve Jacobsen and his team made the discovery. “This implies a bigger reservoir of water on the planet than previously thought.” Scientists have found deep pockets of magma located about 400 miles beneath North America, a likely signature of the presence of water at these depths. It looks like water from the Earth’s surface can be driven to such great depths by plate tectonics, eventually causing partial melting of the rocks found deep in the mantle.

“Geological processes on the Earth’s surface, such as earthquakes or erupting volcanoes, are an expression of what is going on inside the Earth, out of our sight,” said Jacobsen. “I think we are finally seeing evidence for a whole-Earth water cycle, which may help explain the vast amount of liquid water on the surface of our habitable planet. Scientists have been looking for this missing deep water for decades.”

What to do if we find alien life

“Some have argued that it’s only a matter of time till we find alien life – so we should get planning” writes Duncan Forgan in his article titled “What to do you if you discover an alien civilization” published in The Independent.

Indeed, what should we do?

In 1989, a committee of SETI scientists even drew up a set of post-detection protocols to guide scientists through the steps after discovery. These steps include getting your colleagues to verify the discovery, and notifying “relevant national authorities” (precisely who this means is unclear to me), followed by the scientific community and then the public via a press release.

However all these rules were formulated before the era of total internet communications. That is why Duncan Forgan and his colleague Alexander Scholz decided to take another look at the issue, asking how the SETI post-detection protocols should change to reflect our super-connected world.

Duncan Forgan’s postdoctoral position at the University of St Andrews is funded by the European Research Council. He is a member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s Young Academy of Scotland, and a founding member of the UK SETI Research Network.

Online games

No doubt, the game industry of today isn’t exactly the same as it was. Gaming industry statistics shows its steady growth trough years. Actually this fact is extraordinary, really, when you think about it.

On the other hand, no wonder that in the era of greatest engineering achievements we have so impressive impact of video gaming on the entertainment industry of course. Gaming sector is highly involved into one and we see the fast evolution of video games especially in terms of its graphical quality.

Gaming industry statistics shows very interesting facts about gamer skills, habits and demographics around the world. The average age of a gamer is 30-35 years old. Over three-fourths of all gamers play for more than one hour each week.

Examining the stats it’s easy to see new and new generation of gamers and how they make gaming a part of their daily lives. Sure, gaming has its ups and downs, but whether you are winning or loosing you don’t lose motivation and the goal you want to achieve.

Today gaming players are looking for where they can spend their leisure time playing online their favorite games. The online gaming industry has been expended around for a number of years and today the gaming online process have become easy enough.

Besides, more and more games become free today that gives any player additional happy opportunities. You can choose to play any games you love among growing number of video games for fun or set up an account for real play like all slots mobile that offers the best online slots you can choose from.

What to expect in the future? Probably more spectator experiences, more incorporated game’s tools, virtual reality headsets, mainstream vide games which become services and platforms and more. Be sure, you will not be bored with.

Get Mars in 3 days

NASA researchers are working on a laser propulsion system that could get to Mars in 3 days Sciencealert reports. NASA scientist Philip Lubin is working on a system allowing to get the Red Planet in as little as three days. “There are recent advances that take this from science fiction to science reality,” Lubin explains. “There is no known reason why we can not do this.”

“Electromagnetic acceleration is only limited by the speed of light while chemical systems are limited to the energy of chemical processes,” writes Lubin in a paper on the technology.

Sea level rise

Reportedly that the rate of sea level rise may increase even faster than scientists could expect. Actually there are many causes why that can happen. But one of them is the melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The ice sheet is accounted as an “unstoppable” yet. In the U.S. alone, nearly 30,000 square miles of land – home to 12.3 million people today – lies less than 10 feet under the high-tide line, including more than half the area of 40 large U.S. cities like New York City, Boston and New Orleans. Roughly one third of the U.S. population lives on low-lying land that is vulnerable to consequences of varying severity, from permanent inundation to saltwater intrusion into freshwater sources. Unless adaptation measures are taken, sea level rise could cost the globe $1 trillion annually by 2050.
