In the @cosmos ecosystem and need a faster way for developers and node operators to acquire #testnet tokens to test out and use the functionalities of your network?

Tired of the operational overhead of sending tokens?

We've got you...

🧵

github.com/cheqd/faucet-ui
The latest repo we've #OpenSourced is a simple app we built for @cheqd_io

This is a self-serve site that allows users to enter their #testnet address and seamlessly request tokens so they can test out the @cheqd_io network's identity functionalities

testnet-faucet.cheqd.io
We built this using @Cloudflare pages as it provides a fast way to create serverless applications which are able to scale up and down dynamically depending on traffic, at a low cost.

Essentially when a request is made, a tiny server runs for the time needed to process it

Don’t take God out of your matter. I am a full time lawyer and as an immigrant, I would have lived in the UK for 32 years by the 8th of February 2022.

In finding my feet, getting married, having children, raising children, building my career and my ministry,
I can see the hand of God in my matters. Even at the height of attacks to destroy me and my ministry, God showed up.

If you are discouraged, tired, weak, betrayed, jilted, going through family or career issues, I believe I am well positioned to help you through counseling
online or face to face meetings. As a professional, I believe I can help fellow professionals. Don’t die of depression or die of stress. I was inspired to reach out to you wherever you are today. I have helped millions through my daily TV programmes for the past 17 years and

Does #Soundproofing Work Both Ways?
Everyone who has thought of #soundproofing does have this question at some point in time? quiethome.life/soundproofing-…
If I soundproof my #room, does it offer #soundproofing to both sides, like keeping the #voices inside and blocking the noise from outside?

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

#TrojanHorse

tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

1. Here we see two iconic 20th century built structures. And #Swindon is blessed to have them both. In the background, towering majestically over everything is the divine David Murrray John Tower: swindonian.me/2017/08/19/dav… @C20Society #architecture #modernist
2. And in the foreground we have the dome of the Oasis: swindonian.me/2021/02/03/10-… #savetheoasis #swindonin50buildings
3. And of course there's also the listed Spectrum building and even the Link Centre. Certainly the former fits the definition of iconic - thus it featured in #swindonin50morebuildings - swindonian.me/2013/09/21/swi… #Swindon #building #20thcentury #architecture #architecturelovers

As we head into the U.S. #election, there will continue to be a lot of noise that may lead to near-term #market #volatility, particularly since (as we’ve long argued) #markets appear to be able to only focus on one thing at a time!
Still, at times like this it’s crucial to focus on more consequential factors that will drive #markets in the years ahead: in this case, the powerful combination of @federalreserve #monetarypolicy and #fiscal rescue measures intended to keep the #economic engine on track.
So, while many will continue to be skeptical of the sustainability of this #economic recovery, we’ve been impressed by its strength, particularly in the #interest-rate-sensitive segments of the #economy, like #housing, which is going through the roof!

Building as batteries for a flexible energy grid

#SummerStudy20 #smartbuildings
By collecting data from chillers, cooling towers, water pumps, and return air fans, #building System engineers and designers can anticipate regions for increasing load in non-peak energy periods
Increasing load of chillers in off-peak hours can quite literally save costs & build demand for renewable energy. Plus, this can help electric grids adapt loads as renewable energy sources fluctuate

Clear need to increase interdisciplinary knowledge on #HVAC, #building, #smartcities &&& working across diverse groups — Adam Jacobs from Optimal Energy

Some quick thoughts:
US construction is male & white; leading to systemic & intergenerational siphoning of contracts, social relationships & $$$$

Diversity & anti-racist policies need to implemented in bidding & contractors
Existing efforts at Municipal, State, & Federal seek to do ALL the things: gender equity & racial equity --->

There's a big difference between HAVING data at this level of #granularity, and PUBLISHING it.

Providing #age, #sex and street #address is not "#anonymised"; more like mildly #deidentified - and almost certainly still #PersonalData.

What the UK's "getting wrong" is a failure...
...to adequately #test - and further, a failure to get (positive) test results to where they are NEEDED.

Would you prefer your #COVID19 #diagnosis to be #published, or to get to you, your #GPrecord and to the #PublicHealth teams who are the ones having to manage things locally?
Data is not magic, and to be useful it must be done right.

Greater #transparency of the #systems, their #performance, and the people who are #using our data (and for what) would inspire greater #trust than putting 300,000+ people's on the web.

Assuming things were working, ofc.

Real case-study to explain how current energy codes are lethal for good buildings and our pockets.

@MIncontri PROTECTED rural building, dated from late XVIIth C. (with typical belgian add-on)
DEMOLISHED and rebuilt anew.
@MIncontri A simple but very decent detail-rich building, typical of rural Flanders.
With a heavy retrofitting was possible -in theory- to satisfy the requests of contemporary standards and clients, but this option was not chosen.

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here: bit.ly/2BsqDqf
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom
