Anyone who thinks their bitcoin transactions are not being tracked are not facing reality. I am glad it was used to track down these horrific criminals.

I read somewhere it was much higher than that. But there is no doubt it is not stable enough to be a viable alternative to fiat currency at this time. Regulatory measures could help it stabilize but right now it is primarily used by the big players to: launder money, fund criminal activities, avoid income reporting, and evade tax responsibilities. It might be a novelty by innocent users for some but the broader implications are of far greater concern. I predict increased tracking and crackdowns by FinCEN and the IRS in the USA alone with reciprocal activities in other major countries dependent on income and sales tax revenues.



While some companies and organizations are protecting user privacy while others are not, the same is true for antitrust issues. He believes social media platforms are publishers and should be regulated as such. This is an interesting assertion. What say you?

We shall see. It seems to me, all privately owned (meaning the government does not fund them) have full autonomy by law to decide what they allow or don't allow based on the terms of service. This has been upheld in many courts. The private sector has no obligation beyond its ToS. BUT they do have an obligation to enforce their ToS which many do not do like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Social ROI


I would like to have a discussion about social return on investment and how it is calculated or presented. This is a complex topic I would love to learn about! Anyone game?

Ty both! I sent the image to a Virginia snake expert... it is a non-venomous juvenile rat snake. It turns completely black as it matures. I just wanted to be sure it was not a juvenile venomous copperhead which looks similar. We live next to a watershed which is owned by the county and serves as a wildlife refuge. With the extended heat, snake sighting are in record numbers in Virginia - less cold hibernation time means they are out looking for food.

Wasn't the previous one a rat snake as well? You seem to have them in the area.

Also: please hold the camera still despite the adreneline coursing through your veins! ;-)

@Doc Edward Morbius ⭕ lol

It did scare the crap out of me as they always do! We've seen 4 snakes in the patio so far. The first was a 6 ft rat snake I almost stepped on a few years ago. A neighbor said t was known to live in our shed. We cleaned it only to find the skin it shed in the shed! We saw shed skin under a pot the following year after securing the shed. So now none of our pots are turned over.

The second was another rat snake measuring by the photo along the top of the fence about 6.5 feet - confirmed to be one of the longest sighted in NoVA. The interesting thing about NoVA rat snakes is they are blind but have a chemical sensor that causes them to follow the scent of their prey. Snakes are not the only wildlife we see in the patio area. The grapevine attracts a variety of critters - most recently some huge raccoons seen hanging from the structure housing the grapevine eating grapes upside down.

It is not uncommon for mated birds... show more

What do you think will happen at Area 51 this weekend?

@Di Cleverly I believe the reporting already shows us that the vast majority of visitors this weekend will be people "rubbernecking" just to see if anyone tries to sneak in. One woman was arrested already. One piece of good news is the lady who owns the only accommodations nearby could have a nice increase in business LOL

Hallo!, liebe Shelenn, ich vermisse deine Musik-Beiträge!
Machst du momentan keine Musik ??
Oder kann ich deine BEiträge nicht mehr sehen??

@Andi Droid I continue to do music on Tue and Wed and also some other days probably Fridays too now. I will try to remember to post about them ;)

Fabelhaft !!!
Hmmm, … leider war ich ungeplant einige Wochen abwesend, liebe @Shelenn Ayres .
Vielleicht wurde unsere Verbindung irgendwie gekappt?
Oder vielleicht haben sich die Verbindungsadressen zwischenzeitlich verändert?
Ich werde suchen… ;)))
Einen gelungenen Start in eine fantastische neue Woche, für dich, mein Freund!! Herzliche Grüße, voll warmem Lächeln… : )))

Fabulous!!!
Hmmm, ... unfortunately I was unplanned absent for a few weeks, dear @Shelenn Ayres .
Maybe our connection was cut somehow?
Or maybe the connection addresses have changed in the meantime?
I will search... ;))))
A successful start to a fantastic new week for you, my friend! Warm greetings, warm smile... : )))

Note SpaceX has 60 of these satellites with this software bug in orbit unaware of collision issues with others. Anyone want to guess how many space objects in orbit might have nuclear fuel on them? This is what happens when Republicans allow privatization without NASA oversight to ensure safety.

Better than 'Nope, you move your stuff' that we were left to believe yesterday!
