The company, which specialises in blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, said the move comes in response to the recent Supreme Court ruling on sports betting. Epazz said that as this decision resulted in fifty separate state laws, the average individual will not have time to look up each state law to determine if they are in compliance.Part of the application focuses on compliance management and verification of available funds, with the company’s ZenaPay solution to verify all user details before they can make a transaction. The transaction will be run through the Ether network and posted on the user’s profile. Shaun Passley, chief executive of Epazz, said: “We are able to reuse our technology in multiple different blockchain applications. “We believe we need to create a primary mobile application that has robust functionality; the user will be able to select which functions he or she wants. “This business model allows us to decrease our customer acquisition cost and build a user community as we develop and acquire new apps.”Related article: GSA seeks to integrate blockchain in gambling Regions: US Tags: Fantasy Sports Online Gamblinglast_img read more

Save this picture!© Kim Jae-KwanIf you live in a town where your neighbor’s fence infringes on your land and another neighbor infringes on alley, and even you infringe their land…; you may get relieved because it is conventional in old town but reviewing Building Act reveals that you have to give up 10㎡ to satisfy the minimum condition of alley width to four meters, and building coverage ratio and floor area ratio don’t signify nothing in your land due to the right of light to north, setback regulation on the fa?ade, and height limit from Cultural Heritage Protection Act; you just decided to move main gate of your house from the roadside to alley, but your neighbor notices it and comes to you saying “Umm, as you know, I regard this alley as my garden. I am going to grow Chinese cabbage and lettuce for preparing kimchi for the winter. So I oppose to your plan to open your main gate on this side” and the term ‘opposition’ implies that he may file a civil complaint if you don’t respect his opinion.  Save this picture!© Kim Jae-KwanIf you live in a place near a military base free from prying eyes due to its limited accessibility but one day castle of Bukhan mountain is opened to the public and they freely peep your garden and terrace on their way to the castle, Save this picture!© Kim Jae-KwanIf you live in an ill-fated place Vassili Zaitsev prefers to lurk waiting to attack with Mosin Nagant, a commander may use for firing range and Zhao Yun[1] may call contemporary Changban[2]; a group of motorcycle gangs pass by with their hands on (not grapping) the handlebar of Harley-Davison, as if they are aligning with others, wearing chaps (even in summer), sunglasses (even in rainy day) and helmet making a thundering noise every weekends and holidays; at noon, tourists hang around your gate asking “Were izu ?tonn?… Sanmotoonge Caf? on Televi?”[3]; in the late fternoon, a long line of camouflaged soldiers armed to the teeth trek peeping in your garden.

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Nov 20, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHARE For the second time this month, a radical animal activist group has made charges of animal abuse at a pork operation.  Mercy for Animals has released a video tape of an operation in Oklahoma that is part of the Tyson production system. Nathan Runkel with MFA said their investigation showed rampant abuse at the operation, “This was horrific and egregious cruelty that every single worker at this farm was engaged in.” Dave Warner with NPPC was quick to condemn the action at the Oklahoma facility, “The National Pork Producers Council does not condone and, in fact, strongly condemns practices that are not in accord with U.S. pork industry best practices. NPPC calls on Oklahoma authorities to conduct a thorough investigation and to bring criminal charges against workers who abused animals.” Runkle said the industry and company response is too little, too late. The NPPC said, “Providing humane and compassionate care for their pigs at every stage of life is one of the ethical principles to which U.S. pork producers adhere. U.S. pork producers are committed to caring for animals in a way that protects their well-being. Just as it is to others, abuse of animals is appalling to pork producers. Farmers do not defend and will not accept abuse of animals.” NPPC has called MFA a front group for HSUS and says pork facilities are being targeted as part of a HSUS effort to influence public opinion against pork. The release of this video just a few weeks after another video from a pork production had been widely discredited as being false and inaccurate, does seem extremely coincidental.  Tyson has canceled its contract with the Oklahoma operation. “We’re extremely disappointed by the mistreatment shown in the video and will not tolerate this kind of animal mishandling,” said Gary Mickelson, a spokesman for Tyson Foods. “We are immediately terminating our contract with this farmer and will take possession of the animals remaining on the farm.” The owner of the farm said that the video showed “mistreatment” of animals and he had taken action of his own. “I was stunned that anyone could be that callous in their treatment of any animal,” said Lonnie Herring. “After viewing the video, I immediately returned to my farm and terminated the employees seen in the video.”center_img Home News Feed Animal Activist Group Continues Attack on Pork Producers Warner points out, however, that the video had been held for almost a month before being released, “NPPC is concerned, however, that the video was held for more than a month after the abuse occurred before being made public.”  At first it was unclear if the video had been provided to law enforcement officials before being released to NBC news, but  MFA said local officials had been informed of the abuse  before the media was informed.   Previous articleRFS Cuts Would Stymie Biofuels Growth, Purdue Ag Economist SaysNext articleDoubts about a New Farm Bill by Year-end Setting In Gary Truitt SHARE Animal Activist Group Continues Attack on Pork Producers Animal Activist Group Continues Attack on Pork Producerslast_img read more

Furthermore, this action will only further encourage individuals to participate in private gatherings, without any of the necessary public health safety measures, which is where the virus is more likely to spread.”“Businesses have made incredible sacrifices to align with safety protocols to remain open in order to pay their bills and feed their families,” Supervisor Barger said. “Our hospitalization rates are among the lowest we’ve seen. Yet, the rationale for further closures is tied to the number of patients in the hospital. We’ve come a long way to support workers and residents who are struggling to stay afloat and should not regress on the progress we’ve made.”To provide support for the restaurant industry, Supervisor Barger is asking the County to immediately repurpose $10 million in CARES Act funding for grants allocated to restaurants, breweries, and wineries that will be devastated by the new County Health Officer Orders, which are significantly more restrictive than the State’s.“We asked businesses to invest substantial resources to ensure safety, only to force them to close,” Supervisor Barger continued. “Small businesses cannot withstand these constant changes and deserve better.”In addition to today’s motion to rescind restaurant closures, Supervisor Barger introduced a motion that was unanimously approved to engage local universities to provide technical expertise to the Department of Public Health and the Board of Supervisors regarding COVID-19 related prevention strategies and response efforts.“The County has reached a critical junction in protecting the public health of our residents but must also consider the immediate and long-term consequences of extended closures and isolation,” said Supervisor Barger. “We must utilize all of the resources available to us and engage experts for guidance and counsel on how to best serve our communities holistically.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

first_imgA system to facilitate the analysis of wide-band VLF data from goniometer receivers has been designed and built and is now in use. Whistlers and other types of VLF phenomena are selected from a background of noise and from these signals are obtained their frequency-time dependence and direction of arrival, which can then be used to study magnetospheric morphology and dynamics. The system, which uses a spectrum analyser and programmable tracking filter, combines the human skill in pattern recognition, discrimination and selection with the speed, efficiency and accuracy of modern electronic digital techniques.last_img read more

first_imgSediments in the belt under the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) contain high quantities of siliceous microfossils (mainly diatoms) and very little to zero carbonate. This prevents establishment of the age by the usual methods of oxygen isotope stratigraphy at most coring sites. Downcore variation in magnetic susceptibility (MS) from cores from the Scotia Sea closely resembles the temporal pattern of dust concentration and flux in East Antarctic ice cores. The validity of the temporal correlation between marine MS and EPICA Dome C (EDC) dust on the EDC3 time scale is established through C-14 dating of the acid insoluble organic matter back to 30 ka, and radiolarian abundance stratigraphy of Cycladophora davisiana back to 180 ka. The correlations are good (r>0.80) and give credence to the use of MS-dust as a means of establishing chronostratigraphy in carbonate-free pelagic sediments from the Southern Ocean. This correlation has been established in >10 cores in the Scotia Sea. The circum-Antarctic validity of the pattern is shown in correlations to MS in sediment cores from the Indian and SW Pacific sectors of the Southern Ocean. During MIS 3 (57-29 ka), when sedimentation rates at correlated core sites exceeded 10 cm ka(-1). three MS maxima in the marine sediments and dust peaks at EDC, respectively, correspond to the cool periods between Antarctic warm events A1-A4. We have not established the precise cause of the correlation. but its validity around the circum-Antarctic west wind belt suggests that the material was either all transported by wind or was supplemented by wind-driven current transport. The fact that it occurs also in sections with a low terrigenous content suggests a fine grained, high-susceptibility material such as magnetite as the likely source. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.
