Tell me again how #Texas (aka @GregAbbott_TX ) "R" is trying to stop the #BidenBorderCrisis with resulting rising crime in #TX and that he is just helpless to fix the problems in his own backyard because "biden" sniffer in chief is in the way...

โ€œFort Worth police released body camera video of an officer-involved shooting that injured an armed suspect.โ€

โ€œOn March 14, officers responded to a 911 call from a woman who said her husband was intoxicated, suicidal and was threatening her with a gun.โ€

โ€œWhen officers arrived to the house on Wedgworth Road they spotted a man, later identified as 64-year-old Robert Ramos, sitting on the front porch with a handgun.
Police say they talked to the Ramos for 20 minutes, but the man refused to put the weapon down.โ€

[1/๐Ÿงต] I believe @bob_way has already gone way overboard with #ILP and all the complexities of explaining all that needs to be expressed. โค๏ธ

Still, let me make a few remarks on the following topics ๐Ÿ‘‡
โ€ข Infrastructure layers of #ILP
โ€ข #XRPL Payment Channels
โ€ข "Ledger Graphs"
[2/17] โ€” Infrastructure Layers of #Interledger โ€”

When it comes to the most recent version of the open #ILPv4 suite in universal mode (high volume, low value payments), the layering is as follows:

1โƒฃ Application
2โƒฃ Transport
3โƒฃ Interledger (Core Layer)
4โƒฃ Link
5โƒฃ Ledger
[3/17] โ€” 1โƒฃ Application Layer โ€”

This is the suite's first layer, and it contains the following protocol:
โžก๏ธ #SPSP (Simple Payment Setup Protocol)

๐Ÿ“ This is for #identifiers, which are comparable to email addresses and are used to make addresses readable.

[1/๐Ÿงต] @DigiEuro interviewed @moderndosh and @AntonyWelfare on the @Ripple #CBDC-Manager software.

The underlying private #CBDC-ledger based on #XRPL was also heavily discussed.

I summarized the most of the interview for you, along with my personal comments. ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡ Welcome to the Ripple Digital Currency Manager
[2/19] To begin, if you are completely unfamiliar with #CBDCs and the #Ripple solution, here is a nice place to start:
[3/19] One important reason for using a private version of the public #XRPL is that a central #bank needs to be able to control the #money supply.

Why use a private ledger โ“
โ–ถ๏ธ Central banks and #governments must be able to mint and destroy #currencies. CBDC Hierarchy of Needs

[1/๐Ÿงต] I've been reading a lot about #XRPL #scalability recently.

Let me quickly go through how #XRPL performs and #scales on these metrics:

โ–ถ๏ธ Scale up "vertically"
โ–ถ๏ธ Scale out "horizontally"
โ–ถ๏ธ High volume & High value TX
โ–ถ๏ธ High value & Low speed Source:
[2/17] ๐Ÿ‘‰ Asynchronous TX speedโ€”Scale up "vertically"

In contrast to #DAG-based systems, which operate in "chaotic order" and execute transactions in parallel, the #XRPL validates transactions in canonical transaction orderโ€”one Ledger at a time.

. . .
[3/17] . . .

โ“ The approach for #DLT/#Blockchain-based systems such as #XRPL:
โ˜‘๏ธ "Payment Channels"

๐Ÿง It's a sophisticated feature for transmitting "asynchronous" #XRP #payments that may be broken into extremely small amounts and paid in total order afterwards.

Somebody Messed with Texas. And got away with it....for now.

The official ruling from the cour is here:โ€ฆ

IF you're in #TX #Texas, you got serious work to do.
Read these slides carefully!!!!!

The ruling cites very specific limitations placed upon the AG. This is due to a "Legislature" limitation. IN other words, existing Law! ImageImage
Further noted are two rules being cited.

Read very carefully. Very basically specific provisions will trump general ones. (as in this case). And secondly the more specific AND later encated statute controls. Meaning the newer specific law will trump older ones. Image

1/ CW: abuse (please read only if you feel in a good space to, this stuff is tough, but it's important data). Statistics from #TX don't show the predicted "major spike" in child abuse fatalities during the pandemic.

2/ Every child death by abuse, neglect, and wrongful supervision is a tragedy. In no way am I underplaying the importance of these deaths. I'm simply pointing out that the increase is not some kind of previously-unseen thing. It's definitely no tsunami.
3/ evidence:

a) as evidenced, the number is quite "noisy" (standard deviation is 35), and the # of deaths falls between the min (151, 2014) and the max (280, 2009)

b) the rate change is lower than most recent years (its lower than 6 and higher than 8 of the past 14 years) I created this Excel graph to demonstrate the years for whic

1/ In what has 2 be described as a stunning โ€œadmission against interestโ€ (lawyer term for someone who speaks against their own interest & is deemed to be highly probative of the truth in evidence), the #TX @AHIPCoverage speaker presented a slide of ED pro fee charges & payments..
2/ slide shows that for 5 levels of ED pro fee claims the initial payments average was $142โ€“database of >76K IDR disputesโ€”& the adjudicatorโ€™s average award (all 5 ED levels averaged) was $985, thatโ€™s 6.94X of the health planโ€™s initial paymentโ€”improved from first 10 monthsโ€”so โ€ฆ..
3/ what does this say about IDR as the method to resolve $ disputes? 1. Health plans ridiculously low ball initial payments; 2. Physicians are winning more now 16 months in vs. the first 10 months; 3. The average award has increased to nearly 7X from 4.5X initially; 4. Booyah TX!

.@GHPartnership committed to fighting racial injustice after George Floyd's death.
The influential biz group often comments on policy issues.
But it has been silent on the #TX voting bills, which Houston leaders say discriminate against voters of color.โ€ฆ
10 board members want to change that. They wrote a letter to GHP leaders with a proposed statement opposing parts of SB 7 and HB 6, which they say would "impose unnecessary and overreaching burdens on Harris County voters," especially Black and Hispanic residents.
