An overview of some of the chains in the Cosmos Network.

>Hey guys, I've heard some of you asking for this kind of information, so me and some friends at COG decided to put this together. Feel free to follow the link next to each coin for more info.

With the release of IBC (Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol) and the upcoming native "Gravity" DeX coming soon to a specific Cosmos Hub near you, I wanted to highlight what it means to be in the Cosmos Network ecosystem and how it is very much like a nation-state economy where each piece of the puzzle produces a product to export its value to other chains. As a whole, it benefits the Cosmos Ecosystem to have brilliant and innovative products to offer to other “nation states”, so I want to cover the “exports” and “imports” that will be possible with the DeX, on the figurative dock to Cosmos Hubs' port city.

Here is a list of pieces of information covering all the block chains that I could find information on that are intending or confirmed to connect to the Cosmos Hub via IBC in the coming year. The purpose of this is to have an easy access point to understanding each chains' real world utility all in one place, it is simply an overview, please do your own research.

  Cosmos -  $ATOM – cosmos.network  

>Cosmos is an ever-expanding ecosystem of interconnected apps and services, built for a decentralized future. “The Internet of Blockchains.”

Serving as the economic center of Cosmos, the Cosmos Hub is the first-of-its-kind blockchain built using the Cosmos SDK and powered by Tendermint BFT Consensus that provides vital services to the interchain. Cosmos apps and services connect using IBC, the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol. This innovation enables you to freely exchange assets and data across sovereign, decentralized blockchains and changes the way we all see blockchain.

The Cosmos Hub will function as a marketplace, or a “port-city” set to operate a next-gen decentralized exchange in the next month, swapping digital assets from across the Interchain, with very low fees and instant transaction confirmation. With Shared Security in the very near future, ATOM will soon be securing many chains, in exchange for additional staking rewards. With the core mission of the Hub being to connect chains together and by establishing IBC connections with compatible chains and operating decentralized bridges with chains like Ethereum and Bitcoin, it will become the port-city it was envisioned to be.

This is just an updated post in order to keep track of all the keywords I am using so far in ¨The Search¨.

¨My fellow apes: I am very sorry for so many posts today... I was searching for more info in a database so I had to hurry-limited access time. In this last post (for today) I am adding extra information ...

Mandatory: No financial advice. No scientific advice. I am just an ape.

First things first.

Special thanks to:

the mods for allowing the flow of information

Also, many thanks to the fellow apes:

u/SBDinthebackground

u/Smirk_Mcjerk

For valuable comments.

What was the purpose of this search? Curiosity. A plain curiosity-driven search. I am hodling my BB diamonds but I also wanted to know more. We have excellent financial DDs but I wanted to try a first approach to get to know more about the tech (Again. Special thanks to u/magharees to show me the path). I am just entering into the rabbit hole and I can say that BB is huge. As we know, many people are under the impression that BB is only pointing towards cars but it is not the case. BB is extremely diversified. You can also see that in their current (newspaper and web) advertisements.

Some extra details of the search: The information you have only covers mid-late 2020 and the current 2021. So you have updated information. I will be in position to start a new search in the next couple of days (e.g. Friday).

Also the information mainly covers QNX. If you have any other suggestions feel to let me know.

For some of them, you will notice that the link takes you to the actual article. In some others, we will have to dig deeper in order to get the reference.

Being said that, a couple of extra links that my fellow apes may find interesting:

1.This one is related to the use of QNX in Smart buildings.

All out of Bubblegum: Chapter 1

First | Previous | Next Chapter | Subscribe

A/N - Off the back of interest in the Teaser, I am going to continue All out of Bubblegum by starting from the beginning. The teaser will get worked in later, likely as a more fleshed out arc.

If you're looking for some fantasy with hints of erotica thrown in for good measure, please feel free to check out Mid-Earth Maidens.

-----------------------------------

His vision swam back into focus as the ship emerged from the Warp Gate, signalled by the end of the swirling mess of purple lights that had bombarded him during the violent, if brief, voyage.

Captain Theodore Jenkinson sucked in a few breaths until the nausea subsided; warp travel always affected him this way, much to his annoyance, but he was loath to admit such a weakness to the crew. Looking round he could see others on the bridge had fared about as well as him, but all had remained safely secured in their seating.

Jenkinson helmed the Rimor’s Spirit, a sleek vessel tasked with verifying the seventh expansion of the warp network laid out by the East Outreach Surveyance Company, or EOS for those with little patience to pronounce the full title. Over four thousand crew and an occasionally irate captain called the ship home for several months at a time, traversing their employers’ sector of the universe and verifying the work that had facilitated their arrival before the gate could be opened up to allow for excavation and terraforming of new worlds.

Jenkinson had been given command some five years prior, sold on the idea that the ship spearheading deployment of the latest warp network expansion would be peerless, its crew and captain garnering praise and recognition throughout the Confederation. What he had not been told was just how thankless and tiresome the task would be, and that all the great exploring had already been done by past generations; there was nothing of interest this far from Earth, no new frontiers to pique interest.

“Caudwell, read off the ship’s vitals whilst we wait on the full diagnostics for the jump,” Jenkinson commanded.

Pelion: Third Layer of Arborea

PELION, THE LAST REMEMBRANCE

DISCOVERY

"Yet what is any ocean but a multitude of drops?"

--David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

--Percy Bysshe Shelley, "Ozymandias"

"The question underlying all of your other ones is 'Why?' Why is Pelion even here, on a plane dedicated to the grandeur of emotion? A desolate layer that produces nothing but sand and the occasional mummy. And that's because it is the most fundamental emotion of all that underpins it: the fear of annihilation. Pelion serves as testament to the idea that, no matter what you accomplish or how much your ideas permeate the lives of others, eventually you will be forgotten.

"But people also forget that there's more than dust to Pelion. The reasons we go there involve the tombs and monuments to races and creatures and heroes we've forgotten, to seek the last crumbs of their being for one reason or another. Even if it's for an ancient item, that item is often the crux of that time-eaten existence. And it echoes through the eons into our own, telling us that, no matter how much time may pass, those people and places are still important today, even if it is only for today. They have endured long enough to be sought by us, and that is why they have endured so long. If Pelion is founded on primal fear, it is driven by primal will: the triumph of the self over annihilation, the eternal echo of 'I AM' resonating through time."

--Kiri the Forgotten, cleric of Celestian, head priest of The Celestial Cathedral in the Market Ward in Sigil, and experienced planewalker.

No one likes Pelion. Even the Dustmen, who many think would be a natural fit for the layer, find it disquieting, but for other reasons than most do. Most simply see the constant dust and sand as a desolate wasteland, which it is, and write off the whole la

Packaging Deep Dive- the new battleground between Intel, AMD and TSMC

This is part 2 of a series on semiconductor companies. If you read part 1,available both on my blog and reddit, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the future is all doom and gloom for Intel. However, the reality is that’s not necessarily the case. Their longer-term future bears some promise. Although it’s incredibly important, lithography is not the be-all and end-all of integrated circuit design manufacturing. Another critical part which has often been overlooked in the past is packaging – essentially how you make the calculations done on the transistors be transported to the outside world. The process of making a semiconductor device consists of fabricating on wafers with lithography, slicing the wafer into dies, which are then packaged. Packaging protects the die from damage, and lets the chip communicate with the outside world – as well as within the package itself. One of the few things Intel management have said over the past few years that I whole-heartedly agree with is that packaging, not lithographic process, is the future. The main reason for this is the falling benefits of moving to smaller processes [1], coupled with rapidly increasing costs – a EUV machine to make advanced processes can cost up to $125million [2], while the R&D costs to make smaller processes are also increasing [3].

What is packaging?

The best analogy for understanding packaging design is that of architectural history. Imagine each transistor is a human worker. Traditional lithographic improvements have been focused around making the ‘workers’ more productive in smaller spaces – first hunter-gathering, then farming, then offices, etc. However, we’re now at the point where workers have so little room to move in their workspaces (cubicles) it’s extremely difficult to do any more cost-savings the traditional way. Instead, what we need to do is break out of the traditional paradigm we have of placing everyone in one massive building and move to more radical designs. There are two main ways we could go about doing this: chiplets and 3D stacking[4]. In the terminology of our analogy, chiplets are like if you split up the old massive office building into a campus with multiple smaller offices, where each team can wo

RESEARCH REPORT ABOUT OASIS LABS NETWORK

Author: Gamals Ahmed, CoinEx Business Ambassador

https://preview.redd.it/869fpc2g31u51.png?width=525&format=png&auto=webp&s=53c2deb44b208d058dcd5ebc87b14426b986e918

ABSTRACT

Oasis Network is a privacy-focused smart contract platform for open finance built using the Cosmos SDK. The project prioritizes applications and use-cases that promote data privacy and user confidentiality. It aims to achieve this goal by separating its consensus layer from its contract execution layer while providing a built-in interface connecting the two for privacy-preserving computation. The consensus layer acts as a hub that uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mechanism to secure the network and reach a consensus on transaction validity. The execution layer consists of multiple, parallel runtimes (called ParaTimes) for specialized computation needs that each plug into the consensus layer.

1.INTRODUCTION

The Internet is an amazing platform for innovation, creativity, and free expression. Yet, its empowering design elements, like the end-to-end principle and global interoperability, have yet to be unleashed in truly transformative ways.

Oasis believe in building new technology that can give us a better Internet experience. One that transforms “users” into edge clients, and enables them to take back control of their data, and their digital experiences. One that fully respects individual privacy and autonomy, while still supporting amazing apps and services.

To get there, oasis’s team are fostering the development and growth of a privacy-first, decentralized computational network. A network that will grow and evolve with the inclusive community of developers, thinkers, and leaders who maintain it.

The Oasis Protocol Foundation looks to support projects focused on making that privacy-first Internet a reality. From building privacy-preserving applications, to developing more powerful tools for the network, to improving how it operates.

High-Level Components

At the highest level, Oasis Core is divided into two major layers: the consensus layer and the runtime layer as shown on the figure above.

The idea behind the consensus layer is to provide a minimal set of features required to securely operate independent runtimes running in the runtime layer. It provides the following services:

  • Epoch-based time keeping and a random beacon.
  • Basic staking operations required to operate a PoS blockchain.
  • An entity, node and runtime registry that distributes public keys

[Alien Crash] Bk2 V1 Ch 10 Dangerous Success

Chapter 10: Dangerous Success

"What happened? I'll tell you what happened! We were successful beyond our wildest dreams, only to find a nightmare at the bottom of the hole that no one suspected! You should be glad that we found it! That Doctor Burnside had the reflexes of a gunslinger! You think in Megatons, we were working with barely enough energy to heat a coffee cup!"

"Hello, Ms. Nightingale, how are my friends doing?"

"Good news, bad news. Which do you want first?"

"Bad news, always the bad news first."

"Most of them have been transferred to the medical facilities at the Alliance Embassy. Dr. Ymir said they were beyond his skill, they're going into suspended animation to keep the damage from getting worse. He thinks that a Hamathi neurosurgeon will be able to help. Of them all, CWO Jones is the worst. We're hopeful, but we won't know for sure until we get into contact with the Alliance.

"Now the good news, several GCS people have recovered sufficiently to talk, and Mr. Halliwell is good enough to sit up and have visitors, so off you go, he's really going to want to talk with you."

"That is wonderful news! I'm sorry for CWO Jones and the others, but they have a chance, and I need to talk with Halliwell anyway."

Point of Entry 1: Mobile Devices and Cell Phones

Cell Phones are a primary access point for the attackers.

In previous posts I have spoken about the phenomenon that is now dubbed and All Audio Attack or AAA. The two points of entry for this kind of attack is Mobile and Networked devices. The attack is signal based and requires an internet or data connection through mobile to work. I spent months testing this, as an attack against myself and company began in August of 2016. We will work through each component one at a time.

That being said, data can also be transferred via RF on power lines. We see this with smart meters, or similar which are hack-able, unfortunately. Usage data is transferred from the smart meter via signal or hard line.

First, we will talk about the SS7 layer. Signaling System No. 7 (SS7) is a set of telephony signaling protocols developed in 1975, which is used to set up and tear down telephone calls in most parts of the world-wide public switched telephone network (PSTN).

In 2000, the situation changed as soon as the procedure of processing SS7 commands over IP was introduced, exposing the SS7 layer to outside access.

It’s not possible to connect to any carrier network from a random computer over the Internet. One would need a special device – a SS7 hub.

How does SS7 work?

The set of SS7 telephony signaling protocols is responsible for setting up and terminating telephone calls over a digital signaling network to enable wireless cellular and wired connectivity. It is used to initiate most of the world’s public telephone calls over PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).

Over time other applications were integrated into SS7. This allowed for the introduction of new services like SMS, number translation, prepaid billing, call waiting/forwarding, conference calling, local number portability, and other mass-market services.

We will no longer tolerate fascism in the middle east." - Prime Minister Mouteb Shenan


#Initial Aerial Operations

Operation Zulfiqar: Eliminating the Nuclear Facilities

The United Arab Republic will launch a preemptive strike on all known Iranian nuclear facilities. The UAR will launch an initial salvo of 150 Nuh-Class cruise missiles at three Iranian nuclear sites using its two Los Angeles class submarines located in the Mediterranean Sea alongside the large naval deployment in that theatre. The salvo will be fired simultaneously with an aerial attack by F5C Delta Dart Squadrons. The ships will then make their way to friendly ports in Yemen and/or the Red Sea.

Using F5C Delta Darts, three squadrons of 25 aircraft will take off and will destroy the three remaining Iranian nuclear sites before they attempt to break out yet again, entirely neutralizing what's left of the Iranian nuclear program. The aircraft will fire JASSM munitions on the sites using their superior range to strike the nuclear sites with impunity at standoff range with a total of 150 JASSMs fired at the following sites:

  • Ardakan Yellowcake Storage Sites

  • Darkovin Nuclear Power Plant

  • Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant

Prior to the aircraft's arrival in Iranian airspace, the UAR will utilize two EC-130 ELINT aircraft to perform a similar operation using the suter system to what Israel managed to do to disable Syrian air defenses during their raid on a Syrian nuclear facility.

Introduction

Imagine for a second the following scenario.  You are a 2 car family.  One car is used every day going back and forth to work, for shopping, all the little jaunts you and your husband like to go on.  Your grown children are at university and come home for the weekends so the other car sits in the driveway all week and doesn’t get used during the week. What a waste of a perfectly good car.  You think to yourself we could put that car to good use and actually help to pay for university fees, by renting it out during the week. However, then you think “well it’s only a little Ford Fiesta who’s going to want to rent that.”  Well, it turns out a lot of people want to rent it and for a good price: £34 ($40) per day, a possible $800 per month.

Peer to peer car sharing has grown massively over the last few years and people are making serious money by letting our vehicles on a daily basis, emulating the Airbnb model.  In fact companies like Turo, Getaround and Drivy, which has just been acquired by Getaround for $300 Million, are bringing in serious investors like Toyota, Softbank Vision Fund, Menlo Ventures, and IAC to the tune of over $800 Million.

A key difference between rental companies and peer to peer is that they have vastly improved technology with app interfaces that make locating assets and resources, reserving and using them, and making payment convenient and seamless. This, combined with location-specific analytics, allows by-the-minute access to assets and resources (e.g. cars or bicycles) and enables customers to pick up and drop these assets where and when convenient.

Car sharing is just one example of an industry that is being disrupted.  We have seen, experienced and read about the amazing growth of Airbnb which is now estimated to be valued at $38 Billion.  Airbnb has been so successful that companies like booking.com are trying to get in on the act by adopting a similar model when it comes to booking accommodation.

There is also the phenomenal rise of bicycle rentals which we see in cities all over the world, not quite the same as peer to peer sharing, but it’s anothe

Which are your top 5 coins out of the top100? An analysis.

I am putting together my investment portfolio for 2018 and made a complete summary of the current Top 100. Interestingly, I noticed that all coins can be categorized into 12 markets. Which markets do you think will play the biggest role in the coming year?

Here is a complete overview of all coins in an excel sheet including name, a full description, market, TPS, risk profile, time since launch (negative numbers mean that they are launching that many months in the future) and market cap. You can also sort by all of these fields of course. Coins written in bold are the strongest contenders within their market either due to having the best technology or having a small market cap and still excellent technology and potential. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1s8PHcNvvjuy848q18py_CGcu8elRGQAUIf86EYh4QZo/edit#gid=0

The 12 markets are

  1. Currency 13 coins
  2. Platform 25 coins
  3. Ecosystem 9 coins
  4. Privacy 9 coins
  5. Currency Exchange Tool 8 coins
  6. Gaming & Gambling 4 coins
  7. Misc 15 coins
  8. Social Network 4 coins
  9. Fee Token 3 coins
  10. Decentralized Data Storage 4 coins
  11. Cloud Computing 2 coins
  12. Stable Coin 3 coins

Before we look at the individual markets, we need to take a look of the overall market and its biggest issue, scalability, first:

Cryptocurrencies aim to be a decentralized currency that can be used worldwide. Their goal is to replace dollar, Euro, Yen, all FIAT currencies globally. The coin that will achieve that will be worth several trillion dollars.

Bitcoin can only process 7 transactions per second (TPS) currently. In order to replace all FIAT, it would need to perform at least at VISA levels, which usually processes around 3,000 TPS, up to 25,000 TPS during peak times and a maximum of 64,000 TPS. That means that this cryptocurrency would need to be able to perform at least several thousand TPS. However, a ground breaking technology should not look at current technology to set a goal for its use, i.e. estimating the number of emails sent in 1990 based on the number of faxes sent wasn’t a good estimate.

For that reason, 10,000 TPS is the absolute baseline for a cryptocurrency that wants to replace FIAT. This brings me to IOTA, which wants to connect all 80 billion IoT devices that are expected to exist by 2025, which constantly communicate with each other, possibly creating 80 billion or more transactions per second. This is the benchmark that cryptocurrencies should be aiming for. Currently, 8 billion devices are c

DEMOLITION DAYS, PART 79

Continuing

After Chuck returns from his run, we decide it’s time to set camp, break out the maps, worktable, and drinks. Dinner is going to be soon and well since all we have to do is go over the mine maps and some literature, the Drinking Light is lit.

Over cold beers while the dinner Dinty Moore stews over the bristlecone pine, sisso, and mesquite wood fire, we go over the five levels of this mine and plot our strategy.

The last official survey of this mine was in 1954. Since there, there’s only been additional mapping as new levels were opened. Sometime around 1965 or so, the lower levels of the mine encountered water. They pumped the water out as best they could, but by 1967, the lower levels had to be abandoned.

With that, the best and most lucrative part of the mine became subaqueous. Mining in offshoots and raises in the upper levels continued for a while, but eventually, it all played out. Even going in today, with new recovery technology and pumping capacities, the mine would never again be profitable.

So, what does one do? Walk away. Simply leave work on a Tuesday and never return.

It is a remote place, and hardly even the locals remember that there was once a mine up here that probably supported hundreds of miners and their families. The place slowly fell apart, aided by weekend warriors stealing, destroying, and demolishing anything not of value they couldn’t drag away.

There were several accidents in the mine over the years, but no fatalities; but it certainly wasn’t for the lack of trying. Falls, being caught in cave-ins, and having the floor dissolve under you caused several broken bones, concussions and a lot of bleeding and bruising. It also costs a fortune to send out rescue personnel to these remote areas and drag their hapless asses out.

Each time, they’d bar the entrances, run barbed wire, place gates, cement adits shut, and post it with lurid signs warning idiots to stay the fuck out.

They didn’t and suddenly, the BDB Mine was high on the list for final demolition.

That’s why we’re here.

Argue all you want, but BDB Mine, you’ll soon be dead.

We decide to start from top-down. Start in the youngest part of the mine, which should be the safest and work our way down. There are many different adits and portals to this mine, given its levels, so we’re going to have to update all the maps. We’ll be taking samples as well.

The mine has a strong crossflow of air and it’s blowing strongly out the primary adit. That

HOLD FAST

Disclosure - I am outright short TSLA, and sitting on an uncomfortable MTM loss. I have sufficient margin to ride this out but I increased my short at the wrong time and did not roll my hedges this earnings release. Sigh. I broke all rules on position sizing.

That said I remember the sick queasy feeling for 24 hrs after the funding secured tweet before recognizing that it was completely bogus and thus increased my short, thereby creating all the profits I am now giving back. But net net it's important to level set where survivors sit today.

My core investment thesis is that TSLA is riding a curious knife edge where there's just enough production/demand at current price points to make a vehicle with a small but so far, sufficient for the stock price, per vehicle profit, even before the free FSD money. Less vehicles than this, fixed cost absorption reverses. They can't make or sell more than status quo, except for China wildcard. Almost everything else to me a sideshow. Said another way, the stock is maybe 20-25x run rate EBITDA, but without the revenue growth or FCF profile that supports that kind of valuation (but valuation shorts are not an investment thesis ... except today's climate where recent IPOs are getting savaged for not maintaining a consistent story).

1. Musings on Q3 Automotive Cost Savings.

TL;DR – Smell a rat in the warranty accrual, think it's the most likely explanation. We’ll find out when 10Q comes out end of month, although my money says that Zach stops disclosing this information (to extent permitted by SEC rules).

This was where everybody got caught offsides this quarter, with flattish production volume how did TSLA grind out cost savings to drive down Automotive COGS, especially given all the salaried and executive departures? Given particulars of situation (not much changed from Q2 to Q3), it’s worth checking Q2 vs Q3 bridge, and check vs the skimpy cash flow statement picture. See visual aid.

Let’s assume that cash flow statement is generally harder to manipulate. Starting with (1) and (2), there’s a big disconnect here. High quality P&L benefits should be reflected as cash generation, but the respective deltas in (1) and (2) are going the wrong way. Some of this is the restructuring accrual in (5), but that mostly gets reversed out in (4)(5).

Demolition Days Part 22B

Continued from Part A

The mechanics of harvesting granite blocks was much like the harvesting of quartzite blocks. Holes were drilled in a line to isolate a large block of granite on the active quarry face. But here was the deviation, ANFO was used almost exclusively as it could be ‘slurried’ and pumped into the drill holes. First, run to bottom a “det bag” which was a linen bag full of dry ANFO with an electric blasting cap and demo wires that ran out of the hole. Then a pump truck would show up and with their long hose, pump the slurrified ANFO into each of the shot holes.

After the usual clearing of personnel, FIRE IN THE HOLE and such formalities were through, all the shot holes would be detonated electrically simultaneously. There would be an earth rumbling PAWOOMPH and the granite block would move five or six inches away from the rock face. No large blast, no flying shrapnel, just a bunny-hop for the 50 or so ton block of now-freed granite.

A large dump truck would show up and dump a load of fine sand directly in front of the newly liberated block. Then it was time for the heavy machinery. Typically, a large excavator would rumble up, grab the top of the block and tip it, gingerly, off the rock face on down onto the pile of waiting sand.

Once down on the quarry floor, lines of small holes were drilled where steel and lead fosses this time would be hand-hammered into the block. Each stroke of the sledge driving in the steel and lead wedge a fraction of an inch deeper. Given enough time and if the quarrymen read the rock right, the block would split up into nicely manageable sub-blocks, each weighing some 10 or 12 tons.

A wheel loader/forklift would pick up these smaller blocks and wheel them over to the saw house. The blocks would be trimmed to approximate rectilinear figures and moved into the saw bay. There, a gang saw of up to 15 steel diamond-dust impregnated blades would be reciprocated under a deluge of oily water to facilitate cutting and lubrication of the saws to keep them from melting under the constant load.

Depending on the block’s tenacity, it would take anywhere from 24 to 36 hours to saw a single block into 15 or so individual slabs of granite. These slabs were then removed and taken to the polishing and fabrication facility adjacent to the quarry. Once in the polish shop, they would be transformed to the client’s orders: matte or smooth surface, rough or cut edge, bullnose or straight borders, etc.

They made wall slabs

This is Part Two in the mini-series looking at Quant Network. You can see Part One here as well as links to other articles at the bottom of this post.

Quant Network have achieved incredible levels of adoption since launching Overledger less than a year ago. Their growth strategy is to partner with multinational global organisations with huge amounts of employees to then host / implement / take Overledger to each of their own clients. So one Partnership, leads to exponentially more and is the fastest way to scale rather than trying to partner with each customer individually. This is how companies such as Oracle grew so fast and Microsoft with their Partner Network.

> These are multinational global organisations with 100,000 + employees, this is the scale that we are working towards to take Overledger to the mass market. We can’t do it one by one in each country and sign them up but we can partner with someone that has 100 customers and they can take it to all their customers as well which helps with the adoption of our technology” — Gilbert Verdian

Let’s start with arguably the biggest partnership for any Blockchain company listed on Coinmarketcap, the leading Financial Network Provider in Europe, SIA.

SIA

A brief Introduction about Microsoft SQL Server !

Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that supports a wide variety of transaction processing, business intelligence and analytics applications in corporate IT environments. Microsoft SQL Server is one of the three market-leading database technologies, along with Oracle Database and IBM's DB2.

Like other RDBMS software, Microsoft SQL Server is built on top of SQL, a standardized programming language that database administrators (DBAs) and other IT professionals use to manage databases and query the data they contain. SQL Server is tied to Transact-SQL (T-SQL), an implementation of SQL from Microsoft that adds a set of proprietary programming extensions to the standard language.

Inside SQL Server's architecture—How SQL Server works

Like other RDBMS technologies, SQL Server is primarily built around a row-based table structure that connects related data elements in different tables to one another, avoiding the need to redundantly store data in multiple places within a database. The relational model also provides referential integrity and other integrity constraints to maintain data accuracy. Those checks are part of a broader adherence to the principles of atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability, collectively known as the ACID properties, and are designed to guarantee that database transactions are processed reliably.

The core component of Microsoft SQL Server is the SQL Server Database Engine, which controls data storage, processing and security. It includes a relational engine that processes commands and queries and a storage engine that manages database files, tables, pages, indexes, data buffers and transactions. Stored procedures, triggers, views and other database objects are also created and executed by the Database Engine.

Sitting beneath the Database Engine is the SQL Server Operating System, or SQLOS. SQLOS handles lower-level functions, such as memory and I/O management, job scheduling and locking of data to avoid conflicting updates. A network interface layer sits above the Database Engine and uses Microsoft's Tabular Data Stream protocol to facilitate request and response interactions with database servers. And at the user level, SQL Server DBAs and developers write

[Jenkinsverse] Salvage - Chapter 94: Broken Mirror.

It's been a few months since the last chapter, as life has a habit of getting in the way of things, but here is a very brief summary of where we are and how things stand in the context of the galaxy at large: When we last left our heroes, Adrian was stranded on a jungle planet, fighting an A.I., brain-bugs, and the V'Straki Expeditionaries, while the rest of the gang were either looking after Ark Station or were busy doubling-down on convenient genocide.

Against the Deathworlder's Timeline, it is about a year since San Diego was hit by an anti-matter bomb, five months since Sara Tisdale was murdered on Cimbrean by a Hierarchy agent and the events that kicked off the beginning of the SOR, and 3 weeks after Earth gets access to the modified Cruezzir formula.

Up until this point, events in the rest of the galaxy has been unfolding mostly as described in the original timeline.

That changes now.

Salvage is a story set in the Jenkinsverse universe created by /u/Hambone3110. Note that Salvage diverges from the Deathworlders Timeline at Salvage Chapter 82, and is now canon only to itself. There may be characters and events from the Deathworlders timeline included in Salvage, but the story you are reading is no longer narratively related to the original setting.

Where relevant, alien measurements are replaced by their Earth equivalent in brackets.

[OC] Hunt It

Previous

This is a prequel/parallel telling of my other story, Follow It, which people seemed to like and wanted a bit more of.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

From what we were told since we were spawnlings, our first taste of real ground warfare was going to be a glorious thing, hunting the most dangerous of prey – other sapients. But my experience of the first few days of the invasion was anything but.

My fellow Hunt-mates and I were not allowed to watch the opening stages of the orbital battle, and our Hunt was one of the last to leave the interstellar transport to drop down to the surface of the planet.

The more experienced Hunts took all of the actual battles and city-fights, the Sark who had brought glory to the Alliance already in other wars on other planets allowed to pick and choose the toughest, most rewarding targets, whilst new Hunts such as ourselves were left to patrol dead areas and guard transports flitting great distances through nothing.

Probably worst of all, the Surgeon-General at our field outpost seemed to think that our Hunt was incompetent, and as a result we were barely allowed out of the outpost perimeter, and if we were, it was only for short patrols in the immediate vicinity! It was entirely unfair. To be sure, we hadn’t Finished with Excellence in our final Trial before joining the campaign, but few Hunts do! We had made a respectable showing of ourselves, and we were all eager to begin fighting for the Alliance on this new frontier. Assigning us guard duty within the outpost or general labour duties was the opposite of encouraging.

“Voruus! Up now, we just got assigned a patrol!” my spawn-mate Diiko shouted to me in the rest quarters, derailing my thought-train of disappointment and boredom. Diiko had the most advanced medical training in our Hunt and so obviously he was the Hunt-Leader. “Arm up and gather at the western entrance immediately!”

Obviously I couldn’t see his face through the void helmet but I could detect a note of nervous excitement in his voice. I’ve no idea why, none of the other patrols had been exciting, why was this going to be different? I dragged myself to my gun locker, my armour that I was required to permanently wear whilst on campaign clanking against everything that I stumbled into, still not being used to the lower gravity. The armour was based on ancient Sark warrior designs, modernised and fully void sealed, and could only

Network Devices Explained

To build a strong network and defend it, you need to understand the devices that comprise it.

What are network devices?

Network devices, or networking hardware, are physical devices that are required for communication and interaction between hardware on a computer network.

Types of network devices

Here is the common network device list:

  • Hub
  • Switch
  • Router
  • Bridge
  • Gateway
  • Modem
  • Repeater
  • Access Point

Hub

Hubs connect multiple computer networking devices together. A hub also acts as a repeater in that it amplifies signals that deteriorate after traveling long distances over connecting cables. A hub is the simplest in the family of network connecting devices because it connects LAN components with identical protocols.

A hub can be used with both digital and analog data, provided its settings have been configured to prepare for the formatting of the incoming data. For example, if the incoming data is in digital format, the hub must pass it on as packets; however, if the incoming data is analog, then the hub passes it on in signal form.

Hubs do not perform packet filtering or addressing functions; they just send data packets to all connected devices. Hubs operate at the Physical layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model. There are two types of hubs: simple and multiple port.

Switch

Switches generally have a more intelligent role than hubs. A switch is a multiport device that improves network efficiency. The switch maintains limited routing information about nodes in the internal network, and it allows connections to systems like hubs or routers. Strands of LANs are usually connected using switches. Generally, switches can read the hardware addresses of incoming packets to transmit them to the appropriate destination.

Using switches improves network efficiency over hubs or routers because of the virtual circuit capability. Switches also improve network security because the virtual circuits are more difficult to examine with network monitors. You can think of a switch as a device that has some of the best capabilities of routers and hubs combined. A switch can work at either the Data Link layer or the Network layer of the OSI model. A multilayer switch is one that can operate at both layers, which means that it can operate as both a switch and a router. A multilayer switch is a high-performance device that supports the same routing protocols as ro

Report 003: Under The Aqueduct

Over a month had passed since my last assignment, so it was something of a surprise to see a folder resting in my inbox when I arrived at my office this morning. As with both the previous case files, a new item was resting atop the manilla cardstock - a cheap LED headlamp. Since my experience with the tree, I'd been observed, evaluated and reported on seven times, although now it had been three weeks since any such request had been made. I'd assumed that meant I'd been cleared for duty. Then, as the days and weeks passed with no new cases, I began to have doubts. Irrational as it was, a small tingle of satisfaction sizzled through me as I pocketed the headlamp and opened the file.

 

Case Summary: Received 07:45 February 22, 2011

Strange sounds had been reported under a minor drainage aqueduct in West Los Angeles. One LAPD cruiser was dispatched to investigate the disturbance on the evening of February nineteenth. Officers Clancy and DeWalther arrived and reported in at 22:04. Two hours later central dispatch requested a situation report. There was no response. After repeated attempts to contact the officers of cruiser 028, officers Bishop and Everstein of cruiser 133 were dispatched to ascertain the status of their colleagues. At 00:58 on the twentieth, Bishop and Everstein reported having arrived at the scene, and that cruiser 028 was visible but parked and vacant, with the engine off. Officer Bishop then told central dispatch to "Hang on a sec..."

No further updates were received.

At 02:12, the Organization intercepted chatter indicating a third and fourth cruiser were about to be dispatched to the location, and intervened. All LAPD responses to the situation were interdicted, and all involved law enforcement officials were obligated to sign our standard, comprehensive NDA. The Unusual Events division was then informed.

 

Report Summary: Submitted 09:16 February 24, 2011

I arrived at LAX on Monday, the twenty-third of February. It had been over a month since my previous assignment. Given the results of my last excursion, it was recommended by my superiors that I increase the frequency and intensity of my mental and physical training. At the time of my arrival in Los Angeles, I was in the middle of my sixty-eighth hour awake, enduring some scheduled long-term sleep deprivation training.

[SECRET]BGD D.P. WONDER - GLOTON, JABALI, & OSO Families of Vehicles


#Bureau of Ground Development - Development Project WONDER


##[TOP SECRET]


###GLOTON, JABALI & OSO Family of Light & Heavy Infantry Fighting Vehicles (L-IFV, H-IFV), and Modular Truck Platforms (MTP)



> The Gloton (Wolverine), Jabali (Boar) & Oso (Bear) Family of L-IFVs & H-IFV, and Modular Truck Platforms, respectively, will be a collection of common modular light & heavy IFV & APC, and Truck-based vehicles with a wide array of turret attachments to fulfill multiple roles in the AFP as required by the developing Modular Combat Unit (MCU) Doctrine. The use of a modular platform has several benefits:

> * Increased commonality of parts, reducing supply chain complexity in production, and logistical and maintenance complexity in operation.

> * This reduces production and operating costs, at the expense of a higher initial development cost for the platforms themselves.

> * Increases the speed of production and development, while easing future upgrades.

> * A higher budget and greater attention to detail increases quality down the pipe during serial production.

> The AFP has identified (15) specific L-IFV roles, (12) specific H-IFV roles, and (9) specific MTP roles using the same modular platform which will each be detailed below. For the purpose of understanding, the AFP defines a “light” IFV as a vehicle weighing 20-32t, while a “heavy” IFV weighs in at 33-49t.

> The “modular” nature of both platforms has specific design constraints for follow-on variants, similar to modular car platforms in use by auto manufacturers.

> With regard to the IFV platforms, which share a common core, there is a fixed distance between the engine and drive axle, with the engine is mounted in the front. The vehicle width in the L-IFV is limited to a minimum of 13ft and a max of 14.2 ft, while the H-IFV is limited to 14ft minimum and 15.3 ft maximum. Length and height are only limited by speed and weight requirements.

> The hull of all 3 vehicles will be constructed of high strength steel-magnesium (HSSM) steel that will allow 20% less material to be used for an equivalent strength measure compared to outgoing steel alloys which will give weight savings while allowing heavier armor or weapon systems to be used. Philippine metallurgical skill in the production of large ships will be beneficial to this development.

Why does your favorite instant messenger has to die?

Graveyard of messengers, a place for Skype, Viber, WhatsApp, Hangouts, ooVoo, Apple iMessage, Telegram, Line, Facebook messenger and hundreds of other messengers that would still be developed in the future.

I was motivated to write this article by the threatening situation developing on the Instant Messenger market that threatens any future perspective developments in the area of Instant Messaging and video- calling, as well, I wanted to address those tiring questions with regards to what messenger is the best, right and secure.

Over the past years the competition in the messenger market was as high as never before. General availability of the Internet and increasing popularity of Smartphones have made IM applications very popular. Many folks have taken this dynamics step further, by writing their own messengers. Every day a new application comes out, promising to revolutionize the messenger market in the way we communicate. You even get to see some absurd messengers once in a while like, Yo, that allows to send only one word at a time.

Yet, every messenger continues to have their own audience, that markets exclusivity of their own service. As a result, we as customers over time, go after the features of different messengers, and have to install all of them to be able to conveniently connect with different people.

All of this creates a really terrible situation, that at its root threatens the fundamental principles of communication. In this article, through numerous examples I will show you one very important idea:

> "Why such an important for humanity area of technology, as Instant Messaging and audio-video calling cannot be monopolized by one single company and how such monopoly slows down the overall development of technologies and threatens the freedom and security of communication."

Beforehand I just want to throw a disclaimer that I am not hyped about open source and do not posses any phobias about proprietary products and use private protocols and software products in my daily live. I have provided concrete examples below, to exclusively demonstrate the core issues with existing centralized architecture. I do not have anything personal against the products or companies, to the contrary I think they still can evolve. Their model of work, their architecture - that`s what has to die and here is why.

Lambda Provable Data Possession Demo Lambda is a fast, safe, and scalable blockchain infrastructure project, which provides decentralized applications (DAPPs) data storage capabilities with unlimited scalability and fulfills services such as multi-chain data co-storage, cross-chain data management, data privacy protection, PDP, and distributed intelligent computing through logic decoupling and independent implementation of Lambda Chain and Lambda DB

We believe that all storage projects follow the core requirement of Provable Data Integrity.Also, it is crucial for data projects to store data in an infeasible storage node and make them trusted and secure, in the academic world, there are mainly two approaches which are Provable Data Possession (PDP) and Proofs of Retrievability (POR) depending on the usage scenarios. Lambda has applied these two approaches in blockchain through academic research and engineering verification, which has eliminated the core obstacles of decentralized storage.

Nowadays, the data is stored in a unilateral private data center, where the model obtained and analyzed by the demand side has been proved to have big drawbacks, lack of transactional transparency and without guaranteed data ownership and control right.Our ultimate idea is to promote data sharing and achieve common benefit by the distinct QoS storage of all types of data that can be validated publicly and validated anonymously through the Lambda that can be notarized and trusted.

Focus on the vision for Bitcoin, not just its price.

Preamble

The purpose of this post is not to discourage enthusiasm over the recent appreciation of Bitcoin. Everyone here is excited, and rightly so. I’ve put this together because I think people are getting a bit caught up in price mania and losing sight of the bigger picture.

The ideas I’ve pulled together here are pretty condensed as it is, so unfortunately I have no TLDR. I don't claim to have a prophecy to share, or concrete answers to questions about where Bitcoin will go in the future -- nobody does. But that doesn't mean there's nothing to talk about.

I would suggest reading slowly and giving your imagination time to picture or "render" things. There is no other way to grasp Bitcoin.

Final preamble: I know there are people in this sub who are here just for the gains -- they freely admit it, and they laugh at how "true believers" will be left holding the bag when they sell. My hope is that those of you who feel this way will have an open mind. You might see things in a new light, who knows?

Here we go…

The Medium is the Message

In the 1960s, a Canadian professor named Marshall McLuhan became widely known for his thorough analysis of the evolution of communication technologies. His central precept was that communication technologies have dramatic effects on populations regardless of the content they carry at any particular moment. The radio, for example, allowed private microphones to broadcast to widely distributed speakers, which enabled the amplification of private viewpoints on a public scale. This had profound effects on society that played out regardless of what particular messages were carried over particular radio frequencies at particular times.

McLuhan’s famous aphorism, “The Medium is the Message,” is a distillation of this precept. In point form: 1) each new communication technology changes the environment into which it is introduced; and 2) the net effect of a technology over time is both far more interesting and harder to discern than the effect of any particular use of that technology or phase of its development. In other words, it is harder to see the forest for the trees, but seeing the forest is everything.

So: what effect will Bitcoin have on the world over the long run? What is the meaning of Bitcoin?

> 3) Development of new technologies for autonomous orbital operations

Several new stations will be developed including:

> 1) A large manned station designed to receive space-based crew transports for manned missions beyond Earth’s orbit.

> 2) Orbital Foundries for the manufacture of space-based equipment. Particular emphasis will be given to the manufacture of cubesats as this station will dovetail with Russia’s current plans for a space-based cubesat network.

> 3) Orbital Power Stations placed at the poles to power orbital systems through methods outlined below.

> 4) Space-based observatories for multiple missions. Interkosmos will take the lead in developing and launching space-based observatories for a multitude of missions.

> 5) The development of a laser based space-debris defense system.


MANNED STATION


> Station ZEUS will be the major station for use by Interkosmos. ZEUS will consist of three large 50 m by 15 m sections connected into a long 150 m long tube with integrated docking modules with affixed robotic arms for capturing cargo vessels. Accordion folding solar panels will be included for initial power with hookups for larger radial fixed panels to arrive at a later date. These will be installed by the crew on station and will provide large amounts of power. Laser receivers will be installed to receive and distribute power and communications from the APOLLON Cubesat Network.

> The station will be inflatable initially with a triple layer of g

In-Depth look at SCDF's fire and rescue side (part 2)

See the first post here! The first post is general information about SCDF, while this post is a FAQ for people who are interested in various aspects of SCDF. The main purpose of the FAQ is to address the concerns of any new recruits or (impending or new) station personnel.

This was originally combined with the original post, but I was already at the word limit, so I was unable to add new content. Discussions will be split, but I don't think this will be that big of an issue.


FAQ – General Information

>Are all 21 stations working 24 hours?

Yes.


>Do the people on duty only sleep and wake up to go for calls?

No. This is the most widespread, erroneous and infuriating misconception that people have of us. Yes, we do rest in our free time, but we do not have a lot of free time. Between all the admin work and training, realistically you’re only talking about 1-3 hours of free time.


>How do fire stations operate? In sections? In teams? How do you respond to a fire?

We all have our own sections that are permanent. However, we (or at least the way my station works) is that the vehicle we are attached to every duty will consist of different people. This crew will stick until the end of the duty. When a major incident happens, multiple vehicles will turn out for the same incident. The crew tends to get jumbled up depending on manpower requirements. In such a situation we work more as an entire Rota (sans the people who aren’t involved in the incident, obviously), with little to no regard for the sections or the vehicle crew makeup.


>Are SCDF people all barbarians?

There is no politically correct way to answer this, so I’m just going to come out and say it. Let us get this fact out of the way first: SCDF is a dumping ground for everyone they do not want in the other organizations that draft from the NSF pool. You will encounter people from all walks of life. Foreigners, people with criminal records, people with relatively low educational qualifications and true blue Singaporeans who, for some reason, are drafted into SCDF anyway.

Back to the question: Are people in SCDF barbaric? I will not give this a straight affirmative, because it implies everyone in SCDF is barbaric. However, I do have to point out that there seems to be a larger proportion of people here who are more… Rugged. Rougher. Irreverent.

An Overview On Many Of The Chains In The Cosmos Ecosystem

>Disclaimer: I hold small bags of Cosmos ATOM and Sentinel DVPN. I hope I did each chain some justice with this post and tried to source and edit all the information I could into a readable format from the official websites of each chain to give a fair voice to each in the ecosystem. Each chain has their official website listed as a source.

With the release of IBC (Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol) and the upcoming native "Gravity" DeX coming soon to a specific Cosmos Hub near you, I wanted to highlight what it means to be in the Cosmos Network ecosystem and how it is very much like a nation-state economy where each piece of the puzzle produces a product to export its value to other chains. As a whole, it benefits the Cosmos Ecosystem to have brilliant and innovative products to offer to other “nation states”, so I want to cover the “exports” and “imports” that will be possible with the DeX, on the figurative dock to Cosmos Hubs' port city.

Here is a list of pieces of information covering all the block chains that I could find information on that are intending or confirmed to connect to the Cosmos Hub via IBC in the coming year. The purpose of this is to have an easy access point to understanding each chains' real world utility all in one place, it is simply an overview, please do your own research.

  Cosmos -  $ATOM – cosmos.network  

>Cosmos is an ever-expanding ecosystem of interconnected apps and services, built for a decentralized future. “The Internet of Blockchains.”

Serving as the economic center of Cosmos, the Cosmos Hub is the first-of-its-kind blockchain built using the Cosmos SDK and powered by Tendermint BFT Consensus that provides vital services to the interchain. Cosmos apps and services connect using IBC, the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol. This innovation enables you to freely exchange assets and data across sovereign, decentralized blockchains and changes the way we all see blockchain.

The Cosmos Hub will function as a marketplace, or a “port-city” set to operate a next-gen decentralized exchange in the next month, swapping digital assets from across the Interchain, with very low fees and instant transaction confirmation. With Shared Security in the very near future, ATOM will soon be securing many chains, in exchange for additional staking rewards. With the core mission of the Hub being to connect chains together and by establishing IBC connections with compatible chains and operating

Packaging Deep Dive - the overlooked battleground between Intel, AMD and TSMC

This is part 2 of a series on semiconductor companies. If you read part 1,available both on my blog and reddit, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the future is all doom and gloom for Intel. However, the reality is that’s not necessarily the case. Their longer-term future bears some promise. Although it’s incredibly important, lithography is not the be-all and end-all of integrated circuit design manufacturing. Another critical part which has often been overlooked in the past is packaging – essentially how you make the calculations done on the transistors be transported to the outside world. The process of making a semiconductor device consists of fabricating on wafers with lithography, slicing the wafer into dies, which are then packaged. Packaging protects the die from damage, and lets the chip communicate with the outside world – as well as within the package itself. One of the few things Intel management have said over the past few years that I whole-heartedly agree with is that packaging, not lithographic process, is the future. The main reason for this is the falling benefits of moving to smaller processes [1], coupled with rapidly increasing costs – a EUV machine to make advanced processes can cost up to $125million [2], while the R&D costs to make smaller processes are also increasing [3].

What is packaging?

The best analogy for understanding packaging design is that of architectural history. Imagine each transistor is a human worker. Traditional lithographic improvements have been focused around making the ‘workers’ more productive in smaller spaces – first hunter-gathering, then farming, then offices, etc. However, we’re now at the point where workers have so little room to move in their workspaces (cubicles) it’s extremely difficult to do any more cost-savings the traditional way. Instead, what we need to do is break out of the traditional paradigm we have of placing everyone in one massive building and move to more radical designs. There are two main ways we could go about doing this: chiplets and 3D stacking[4]. In the terminology of our analogy, chiplets are like if you split up the old massive office building into a campus with multiple smaller offices, where each team can work on a job that they’re specialised in, or where you can cut costs by having inexperienced interns working in one parti
