1/n Something big is up at @binance. First @Poloniex, then @steemit and now @CoinMarketCap. If we go by the reported news on the @TheBlock__ , this could be worth $400 Million. Assuming that it is not an #AprilFoolsDay prank...

2/n Over the last 12 months, @cz_binance has acquired at least three companies - @BinanceJEX, @WazirXIndia, and @dapp_review. Looking at the big picture, it is a notable development as @cz_binance mops up the key players in the #decentralized fundraising space
3/n If you're looking to develop a #dapp, your best best is soon going to be the #Binance Blockchain. Why? Because it tacitly lets #developers know that it has the most well-oiled machinery in the much muddied #crypto space.

Though it hardly needs to be said, there are few historical precedents for us to look to that are truly comparable to recent #Fed policy moves. The 2008/09 #GFC is an obvious analogue, but the pace and extent of #policy moves is even eclipsing that.
Another potential point of reference is the Second World War when, following Pearl Harbor, the @federalreserve pledged that it would be: “prepared to use its powers to assure at all times an ample supply of funds for financing the war effort.”
That stance, in effect, left the @federalreserve’s System Open Market Account’s (#SOMA) size at the mercy of #Congress and the Administration, which is a clear example of the #Fed doing “whatever it takes” to prevent unwanted increases in #yields to fund #fiscal crisis response.

1/n - Firstly, an apology. I should've been quicker to realise what was happening. The penny dropped yesterday when I looked at prices of physical gold and silver. They haven't been smashed. Not only that, but demand has sky-rocketed and suppliers can't keep up. The gap...
...between the quoted paper price and the actual metal is widening. Rather than me explain what's going on, I beg you to read this goldtadise.com/?p=459779 I have followed 'Plunger' for years, and I highly value his work. He nailed this 100%. In summary...
...avoid the paper ETFs. Invest in physical gold/silver or quality 'investment-grade' producers. Thanks to the recent manipulation they will be available at enormous discount. That will change though. They will be making handsome profits with the metals at these levels...

"Les banques ne prêtent qu'aux riches". Mais elles prêtent aussi aux pollueurs, et à ceux qui spéculent en bourse ou dans l'immobilier.
Et si on changeait cette logique mortifère à la fois pour la planète et pour l'homme ?
C'est l'objet de cet article.
lemondemoderne.media/etat-finance/
En réalité, cet article propose une solution qui ne sera jamais prise en compte par les "dirigeants" qui nous gouvernent. La #finance est trop puissante pour que les règles du jeu changent en profondeur. Et pourtant il y a urgence ! [THREAD]
Le #coronavirus, qu'il soit dangereux ou pas, démontre jour après jour à quel point notre économie est fragile. Pourquoi le monde de la finance risque l'effondrement ? Pourquoi il risque d'entraîner avec lui notre économie dans le chaos ?

I am sure by this time we have all heard of the phenomenon known as #FinTech. Recently, I used the #GoogleTrends platform to ascertain the degree of search interest in the term "FinTech". The graphs depict a surge in interest from around 2014...
I took the #GoogleTrends analysis a bit further and determined where (geographically) interest in the search term #FinTech was most pronounced...

"I want to install a simple solar PV system in the rooftop of my house. How do I go about it??"

This is the procedure for a simple system with Net-metering and no Batteries.
Step 1: calculate rooftop area in Sqft or Sqm Say 100 sqm++
2/n
of shadow free area. You need to own the rooftop.
Thumb rule: 1kW needs 10 Sqm/100Sqft
In our case, we can build 10 kW. You need own the rooftop.
Step 2: Check Ebill: say the consumption is 1500 units (kWh)/month. In India, peak sunshine hours = 5.5 hours. In order to++

zero your ebill, you need 1500/(30 x 5.5) = 9 kW system.
Step 3: Check sanction load in ebill. You solar size cannot exceed this value.Say sanction load = 10 kW
Step 4: Choose the min of the values in 1, 2 and 3 and that is the size of the system. In this case,it is 9 kW++

🙏Why Doctors Should Organize

@drjudymelinek @choo_ek
Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

Building More Trust Between Doctors and Patients

@c_ehrbar Laugh all you want, I look at every timeframe on everything that I'm concerned with. I chose the 1H timeframe here, and even the 3m too on a facebook post, to serve as a "before" image if/when it plays out as quickly as expected. Then I can make something like this yet again.
@c_ehrbar An example of higher timeframe context that I've been providing... Notice how nicely it bounced from the .886 retracement 125 days after I posted it.

@c_ehrbar I use that along with my analysis on #bitcoin itself, the individual indices, my "sum of that american indices divided by the price of gold" private chart, and several others to be almost certain of my medium-term scenario playing out, just as I was about #bitcoin goin up from 3k

This is the insanity & silly talk promoted by central bankers globally.

Nobody asks the question.

#bitcoin doing well since my "extremely bullish" proclamation to my friend about 25 minutes ago at the bottom of the most recent short-term dip.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

A few things to remember about #MichaelCohen:
1. He has been represented by #Clinton operative Lanny Davis
2. Not even #Cohen is guilty of the #campaign #finance violations he pleaded guilty to in SD NY--they are not crimes. Prosecutors made them up. @realDonaldTrump
@POTUS
2/ They are absolutely unprecedented -- obviously added for partisan political purposes to smear @realDonaldTrump
3. Cohen is all about Cohen.
4. There are no campaign finance violations here! It's bogus.
@WhiteHouse
@PressSec
3/ 5. #Cohen admitted there is no evidence of collusion.
6. Trump told #Cohen to tell the truth
7. #MichaelCohen was never in Prague so #SteeleDossier is false on that point too
8. There are no tapes for which #Trump could be blackmailed
#Dimms have 00

I will now proceed to go on a #tweetrant / #tweetorial with regards to #Pharmaceutical #biotech pricing (focus on #cancer).

Very timely, also see @WSJ wsj.com/articles/big-p… on price hikes.

For the record, no #COI / #FCOI. Feel free to contribute to this discussion.
Lets look at the problem from the @PhRMA / business perspective. And lets suppose you are a wonderful company, started by wonderful people who just want to make the world a better place (I know, not real, but stay with me for a minute).
You start with a great idea / or pipeline platform and start selling this concept to #VC #VentureCapital, and lets assume that this is actually a really good idea. What is the needed return on investment to make this worth while. A: further R&D must exceed the cost of capital.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Thread: Nobel Jean #Tirole gave a public lecture at UCL tonight: 10 years after the #financialcrisis where do we stand. Key points:
1)#Finance is good if used and regulated properly. We seem to be making the same mistakes of 10 years ago. #Subprimes are up again in US. 1/
2) Its crazy for banks to hold a lot of their nation’s sovereign bonds. It creates a #doomloop. a bank fails>government needs more debt to bail it>brings down sovereign bond prices and more banks under stress> more public money needed. And yes he used Italy as an example.2/
3) #cryptocurrencies are a bubble. Fiat money and central banks have worked quite well in developed economies in the last 30 years. And with cryptocurrencies seignorage goes into private hands and not to the goverment.

#Muslims r one of the most financially excluded citizens in #Ethiopia & their primarily reason is #Riba. But I wonder how & where the data for such reports are collected? "Financial inclusion in Ethiopia: 10 takeaways from the latest Findex" tinyurl.com/ydhmd738 via @WorldBank
Citizens who identify themselves as #Muslims account for 34% of the #Ethiopia'n population (CSA, 2007). This large segment of the society was demanding Shari'ah Compliant #finance for long time. Banks first responded by introducing 0% interest A/C #financialinclusion @WorldBank
Banks attracted millions of customers and mobilized billions of Birr in deposits. Sadly, customers were unaware that these deposits are not #ShariahCompliant and they were subjected to successive devaluations which has impacted them a lot. #financialinclusion #Ethiopia @WorldBank
