Chevy Blazer vs. Ford Bronco "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Blazer vs the Bronco. Classic vehicles that collectors love. Some years were garbage but if one was going to buy and restore one, which one would you pick? Serious survivalists gravitate towards the older models that are said to be EMP proof. Many here have owned, restored and have knowledge of these vehicles. My son is really thinking about restoring one of these classics. So what years, what vehicle

SEC Slaps Fraudulent ICO Founder With $30K Fine, Lifetime Ban "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced Tuesday that itd procured new bans against the founder of a business behind an allegedly deceptive preliminary coin offering. The bureau said that it acquired officer and manager and cent stock bar against David Laurance and his company, Tomahawk Exploration LLC. Tomahawk, the SEC alleges, sought to lift capital via a Tomahawkcoin token sale that used misleading advertising materials and false claims about oil drilling permits. Further, the Tomahawkcoin is thought to have been marketed with a false promise that token owners will be capable convert Tomahawkcoins into actions and possibly profit from the expected petroleum production and secondary trading of the tokens, in accordance with the SECs announcement on the topic.

In accordance with the Tuesday statement, Laurance has neither admitted nor denied the SECs allegations, but he and the company have agreed to the bars together with a $30, 000 penalty. The officer and director bar prevents Laurance from serving in any capacity in a public business, although the cent inventory bar prevents him from trading or owning penny stocks. The two prohibitions are permanent, in accordance with the SEC. Investors should pay attention to the chance of old school scams, such as petroleum and gas strategies, masquerading as revolutionary blockchain based ICOs, Robert Cohen, who leads the SECs Cyber Unit, said in a statement.

Pot Publication High Times Now Says It Wont Accept Bitcoin in IPO "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Marijuana advocacy publication High Times is walking back a former announcement suggesting that it might accept a bitcoin when it launches its first public offering. The company said a week ago it might accepts bitcoin and ether the cryptocurrency of the ethereum network as part of its IPO, which seeks to raise just up to $50 million. In the time, based on a news release, Chief executive officer Adam Levin said the company is taking another step to future, and not just as one of the very first cannabis related brands to become public on the Nasdaq, but as well as the first to allow bitcoin and ether as part of our public capital increase. .

But on August 13, it explained in a deposit at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission this announcement was a mistake, and the company wouldnt really be accepting bitcoin. On August 3, 2018, the business published a news release pertaining to its Regulation A+ offering saying that it might accept bitcoin as a kind of payment for subscription to the Companys shares, the filing said, adding. This media release was distributed in mistake as the corporation wont be accepting bitcoin as payment for shares. As provided for in the Companys Subscription Agreement linked to the offering, the Company will only be accepting check, credit cards, ACH or wire transfers as payment for subscriptions to shares. .

The submitting notably didnt mention ether, the other crypto-currency, specified in the press release. High Times didnt respond to a CoinDesk petition for comment on the omission by press time. The IPO will remain publicly accessible via a Regulation A+ exemption, allowing retail investors to buy High Times common stock. The purchase will close either when the provider raises the target $50 million or on Sept 12, the planned end date. Marijuana farm picture via Shutterstock.

Those Who Dont Take Heed Die of Ingratitude "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This article was originally published by Doug Uncola Lynn at TheTollOnline.com

One evening, while in college, I attended an extracurricular lecture held by my college adviser on nuclear proliferation. It was a concern that was close to his heart and I admired his doing something about it at the time.

During his talk, he shared the parable of the frog in boiling water and it was the first time I had heard it told.

Essentially, it boiled (pun intended) down to this:

If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will immediately jump out to save its life. However, if you place the frog into a pot of room temperature water and slowly heat it to a boil, the frog will gradually boil to death.

The lesson from the story?

For me, it was this:

Inattention and complacency kills; gradually by degree at first, and then all once.

I believe this applies to people on a personal basis as well as on a grander scale. Consider how much we have progressed since Y2K. After 911, I became that frog in the water before I jumped out and went Galt ten years later, in 2011. It was around the time the tsunamis struck Japan and a few months before Ann Barnhardt jumped ship. I couldnt stop the boiling all around me, so I got out.

For the next several years though, a sort of paralysis set in that was brought about by my anger and fear. In a sense, I was boiling still, but in a different way; from the inside out, as it were, as Ive seen others do also. Earlier this year, I wrote about some of that in another essay, regarding the importance of honesty and how I leaped from that latest boiling pot:

I began to recognize the pride behind my fears  a type of pride that led to resentments and anger.  Beneath all mad is sad and underlying both is fear. I began to think about faith; how faith without works is dea...

24/7 Work Emails Are Making Your Entire Life Worse "IndyWatch Feed Health"

24/7 Work Emails Officially Make Your Entire Life Worse

By Heather CallaghanEditor

Bosses call it work flexibility, but the expectation to be accessible during non-work hours through our smart devices is really a chaotic (and unpaid) lack of boundaries that hurts the other parts of our lives.

You probably arent surprised. Getting work emails 24/7 can suck the life out of life whether you act upon them or not.

Thats not just me saying that. Researchers have definitively proven that the mere presence of work emails in our home-life negatively impacts our health, relationships and non-work life. 

As I said in my article about work productivity hacks, getting hit with work emails on your phone before you even get ready for your job can be a depressing start to your day.

How depressing? Researchers from Lehigh University want you to rethink your relationship with tech because personal relationships and home life suffer for those tied to their work emails round-the-clock.

They write:

Data Structures 101: Stacks "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Photo by Mathieu Turle on Unsplash

A Stack is the most elemental of the data structures in computer science.

Data structures are a way to organize our information. They provide a means of storing different types of data in unique ways and methods to access either all or distinct parts of it.

Starting with a Stack

Have you ever used a stack? Of course! Your email is a form of a stack, new mail comes in and is placed on top. When you finish reading the latest email, you remove it from the top. In development, whenever you call a function, that is placed on a stack in the engine that processes the code.

How we use stacks is a Last In, First Out processing system.

An analogy would be a recipe. Suppose we want to make a bowl of spaghetti. What are the steps?

  1. Get a pot
  2. Add water
  3. Bring water to a boil
  4. Add salt to the water
  5. Add spaghetti
  6. Cook spaghetti till tender

Now when the spaghetti is done, we have to get back to where we started, a clean kitchen. We need a method to organize our task list and help us get back to where we left off.

JavaScript is a single threaded language. In the simplest terms, it means it can only do one thing at a time, just like us. So how does our language of choice handle this in an organized way, Stacks?

As you can see, the stack is a clean way of handling tasks, removing them, and eventually getting back to the beginning.

Stacks come with a cost: memory. For every item we place on the stack, we allocate a stack frame to it. Think of an array index. Each index is allocated space to hold something. If we keep adding and adding to a stack, we hold the possibility of running out of space, like a parking lot that is full. When that happens, we have an overflow, hence, the term stack overflow. This can lead to crashes and stuck processes.

How do we reclaim memory? When an item is removed from the stack, JavaScript uses garbage collection to free up resources and reclaim the storage space previously used.

Implementation

First, how do we store the data? What can we use in JavaScript to hold data? We can use native objects like arrays, which we are famili...

Data Structures 101: Queues "IndyWatch Feed Education"

credit: att systems group

Starting with a Queue

When you go the Shake Shack, most often there are other people on the line waiting to be served. The customers are arranged in a particular order, First In, First Out. Other real-life scenarios are toll booths or wedding chapels in Vegas. This method of ordering data for service, in our case, people, is what Queues are all about.

Queues are very similar to Stacks regarding interface, with the difference being Stacks process data Last In, First Out.

So we have differences in the order of processingwhy? We need a different method of processing data that preserves the order. For example, suppose we have a stream of data in the node. As it comes in, we need to do something to it and then write it to a file to read later. For simplicity sake, lets say we need to capitalize every letter streamed. What would happen if we used a LIFO, or stack data structure?

The main reason is queues process data fairly and preserve the order of the collection. This also happens when we iterate over items with a for or while loop, forEach(), or map() method. Each item in the array gets processed in the order it was inserted, from index 0 to index.length1.

In Queues, items are processed in the order they are inserted.

Implementation

A simple implementation using arrays is with the method shift() to remove from the front and unshift() to add the front.

Like my post on Stacks, we will describe the API for a Queue. Then well start with an implementation using the pseudoclassical method and a base object.

When an item is inserted into a queue, its called enqueued. When an item is removed, it is dequeued. Other methods include peek, contains, until, and count.

To track our items, we use the head for the front of the queue and tail for the back. The difference between the two gives the queue size.

Our Storage mechanism is as follows:

// _underscores indicate "private variables" to other engineers
const Queue = function(capacity) {
this.storage = {};
this.capacity = capacity || Infinity;
this._head = 0;
this._tail = 0
}
let q = new Queue();
q; // Queue { storage: {}, capacity: Infinity, _head: 0, _tail: 0 }

To Enqueue:

Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Invest in Axonis $32 Million Funding Round "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Enterprise focused blockchain startup Axoni has completed a $32 million Series B financing round led by Goldman Sachs and Nyca Partners. In addition participating in the round have been Andreessen Horowitz, Citi, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Y Combinator and Digital Currency Group, among others. The round increases Axonis total venture capital financing to over $55 million to date, in accordance with the company. Coffers now full, the NY based Axoni said it is planning to use the funds to continue developing both its data synchronization technology and its ethereum compatible smart contracting terminology, AxLang, as well as to increase the number of goods relating to its auditable dispersed ledger based network, dubbed AxCore.

Greg Schvey, Chief executive officer of Axoni, added in a statement that the company will seek to enlarge the number of businesses which use its dispersed ledger technology. The adoption of dispersed ledger protocols on capital markets looks the first days of adopting TCP/IP for distributed business applications, commented C. Thomas Richardson, head of Market Structure and Electronic Trading Services at Wells Fargo Securities. Axoni raised $18m in a Series A round led by Wells Fargo in late 2016, with investors like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Andreessen Horowitz also taking part in that financing effort. The company demonstrated that Citi had later contributed an undisclosed amount in May 2017.

JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs took part in the litigation of an equity swaps DLT system in overdue 2017 that utilized Axonis AxCore platform. Most lately, Axoni teamed up with Clearmatics to issue a derivative contract on a blockchain and put it on another a milestone in blockchain interoperability. U.S. Dollars picture via Shutterstock.

Mothers as Makers of Death "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Stages in pregnancy as illustrated in the nineteenth-century medical text Nouvelles dmonstrations daccouchemens.

 

I wrote the first draft of my novel, Heartbreaker, in a ten-day mania in August of 2015 with a fist-sized bandage over my left ear; beneath it, a track of dark blue stitches. The smallest bone in the human body, my stapes bone, which is charged with conducting sound in the middle ear, had stopped working. I now had a thin hook of titanium fluttering in my head, and, in the on-switch manner of miracles, my hearing returned.

My husband had taken our two young sons on a road trip to a small cabin on the east coast of Canada. I could not lift anything heavy. I had to keep my heart rate low. I could not wash my hair and wore it in a knot shined with grease on top of my head.

I turned off my cell phone, unplugged our landline and disconnected from the internet. This was my plan. To be unreachable. Didnt Jonathan Franzen pour cement into his USB port and work in some kind of carpeted hell-mouth of a rental office to finishwhich one was it now, ah yesFreedom?

My husband could see that I had a novel inside of me, and it was a commotion, and the only way to settle it, was to write it and the only way to write it, was to be alone. I had not been alone in a decade. I had not been alone because I am a mother, and a mother is never alone. When she is washing, sleeping, raging, she is not alone. For a mother, this is the state of things. Children hang from your clothing. They pummel you with questions. Like a gunfight, like the most consuming love, like an apocalypse: they take up all of the available space.

I finally had my hearing checked when, pregnant with my second child, I could no longer hear my first sons dear, earliest words. (I would soon learn that my disease, the same one that befell Beethoven and Howard Hughes, was exacerbated by pregnancy.) I entered the testing booth, a grim room of knobs and wires, closed the heavy door behind me, sat down, and put on the too-tight headset. My audience of one, the audiologist, looked at me through the thick glass, her face evangelist-heavy with makeup. As I had been instructed, I pressed the button on the remote whenever I heard a tone or a word. I...

Leading up until this Tuesday a great majority of cryptocurrency markets have lost considerable value over the past few days.

When it comes to cryptocurrency markets today on August 14, theres an awful lot of blood in the streets. During yesterdays trading sessions, the entire cryptocurrency economy dropped under the sub-$200B zone and today the valuation is hovering around $195-199B. This is due to the extreme losses many digital currencies have suffered through over the past three days. A great majority of coins are seeing losses between 3-25 percent today as many assets have touched their previous bottoms or lower. Overall trade volume this Tuesday has increased, likely because prices are so low right now, and over the last 24-hours around $15.9B cryptocurrencies have been traded.

The Parable of The Accessory Plant "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Ive recently become obsessed with plants. Thats not to say that I havent always really liked plants, but a conversation this summer changed the way I saw them. A few months ago I had my friend Shane from Moss and Timber (if youre local to So. Utah you MUST check it out!!) come by the Merc and check out the window lighting. I knew I was going to invest pretty heavily in some large plants and wanted to make sure that I was getting the right kind for each place. Ive always heard about how important the right lighting conditions are, but never really cared all that much.

Maybe that is why they always died?

Weird!!

Rubber Plant | Vintage Revivals

Over the last few months Ive collected quite a few. My favorite one being a tall rubber plant that I put right in front of our north facing window. Almost immediately it sprouted new growth, and hasnt slowed (16 new leaves and still going strong!) It makes me feel like a freaking rockstar, even though Ive done nothing differently. I was in Moss and Timber bragging to Shane about it and he said something Ill never forget. Plants can either be an accessory or a friend. If you treat them like an accent piece they probably wont survive, but if you treat them like a friend, chances are youll have a lifelong companion. WUUUUUT. Once that little phrase was shared it was like one of those moments in a movie where all of your past comes rushing back and I could see plant after plant that had mercilessly suffered at my hands because it was more important to have it styled in a place where I wanted, than to give it a home where it needed to be.

But the excitement around this movement soon abated as users began to realize that there was no utility around the points they had collected.

Now theres a startup called FlipNpik thats offering a new approach to this idea. This collaborative social media platform, dedicated to local businesses and connected to blockchain technology, allows users to monetize their social media engagement through a decentralized network where value is created and equitably distributed among FlipNpiks community.

Major drivers behind the companys creation were concerns on the part of small- to medium-sized businesses, particularly local ones, regarding the dominance of major advertising players like Facebook offering few promotional options to small enterprises with a limited budget. Predicated on the cultivation of mutually beneficial relationships, FlipNpik provides a robust setting for small businesses and community users to actively engage with one another in productive commerce.

Bitcoin Mining Monopoly Bitmain May Branch Out From Crypto "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Cryptocurrency investors are not getting any respite from the bearish mood of the market as, once again, Bitcoin dipped below $6,000 to reach a near 2018 low on Tuesday. The market has been hit by uncertainty over the upcoming cryptocurrency regulations from various jurisdictions across the world, and in the middle of all of this, arrives the rumours of Bitmains plans of cashing out of Bitcoin.

Bitmain IPO Could Create a New Tech Giant

Bitmain is a seller of ASIC chips and among the biggest cryptocurrency mining pools in the world. It reported a revenue of $2 billion in Q1 2018, and projects to achieve $10 billion in annual revenue, provided the cryptocurrency market does not tumble further. The company is now planning on an IPO for venturing into artificial intelligence, and it expects that it will generate 40% of its revenue in the next 5 years. The company has already closed a $100 million pre-IPO round.

The move is being looked at as the companys cashing out of the Bitcoin craze and venturing into other promising technologies. 2018 has witnessed declining demand for cryptocurrency mining hardware. While 2017 saw exponential growth of mining hashrates, this year has not been so favourable for cryptocurrency mining. Increasing prices of mining hardware, along with the substantial increase in mining difficulty has interrupted mining growth and led to a sharp dip in mining profits.

Some, on the other hand, feel that this might be the companys attempt at managing their investment in Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which is not very liquid at the moment. Blockstreams CSO tweeted on August 11 that massive losses are just around the corner as they have no idea how to maintain BCH, but are all-in.

Bitmain, however, has been taking initiatives to convince the audience of its emphasis on increasing transparency and fostering greater dialogues between the company and cryptocurrency communities. In July, it released a blog on the various measures it was going to implement to promote transparency in its operations. The company wrote that it was going to publish data every 30 days to let community me...

North Carolina State Bar Sues Vaccines Rights Attorney "IndyWatch Feed Food"

The North Carolina State Bar is suing vaccine-rights attorney Alan Phillips, in what Phillips claims is an unlawful proceeding designed to take his license.   And the Bar attorneys investigating Phillips are even suppressing good-faith complaints filed against them by Phillips and several vaccine groups, putting themselves above the law!

Phillips has spent 24 years helping not only his clients, but also other attorneys, legislators, and activists all over the country to defend their rights on all types of vaccine exemptions (birth, daycare, school, work, military, immigration, child custody disputes, international travel, etc.).  He is based in North Carolina, known as Vaccine Central in the pharmaceutical world.  Its critical that we help put a spotlight on the corruption and save this important resource for the alternative vaccine community.

Sweden Is Burning: Migrant Gangs Unleash Coordinated Fire-Bomb Rampage Across Multiple Cities "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden, but an increasing number now agree with him.

Amid soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education, and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity, resentment in Sweden has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years.

And tonight is one of the worst nights for violence in recent history as police report multiple gangs of masked youths rampaging across three major Swedish cities, setting cars on fire in what seems like a coordinated action.

DMarket Brings Blockchain Innovation to Mass Gaming Audience "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Collaboration between the blockchain-based marketplace and a global entertainment giant benefits the whole gaming community.

DMarket Token (DMT) finished in July as one of the top performing cryptocurrencies anywhere in the world. Up nearly 300% at its peak, the DMT drew increased attention to the project it belongs to. DMarket is a global virtual items marketplace catering to the needs of the rapidly expanding video games virtual items industry. For those unfamiliar with the sector, it has raced past $15bn in annual purchases with double-digit yearly growth.

However, those games are not connected directly to DMarket blockchain. They belong to the Steam gaming ecosystem, and items from them are traded on DMarket through Steam accounts. This is not truly innovative because other platforms, such as Skins.Cash or BitSkins, provide similar functionality. The real breakthrough in digital items trading will happen when developers start to connect their games directly to DMarket blockchain.

Thats what DMarket is aiming for a global blockchain-powered ecosystem for trading virtual assets without any borders between different games and platforms. And thats why the most recent news from DMarket is probably more important than the token price fluctuations or current volume of Steam-dependent trade on the marketplace.

The truly ground-breaking news is DMarkets integration with global gaming giant Unity via an SDK which is already available on the global game development giants asset store. The partnership between Unity and DMarket allows any Unity-based game to easily connect to DMarket blockchain and make in-...

During World War One, Austria-Hungary produced about 13,000 sniper rifles and carbines and while the significant majority of these were full length rifles, the Empire was the only major power to produce a scoped sniper carbine during the war. These continued to be produced until about 1920 or 1921, to be used as war reparations to Italy. However, Italy never made use of them, and the vast majority were eventually scrapped. For this reason, they are very scarce rifles today.

Because the M95 loaded using a 5-round Mannlicher type en bloc clip, the scope on the M95 snipers had to be offset to the left of the action. Scopes from 5 different manufacturers were used, including many purchased form Germany in the early stages of the war. This particular one is a Reichert scope, but Kahles, Suss, Fuess, and Oigee were also used. Most, including this one, were of 3x magnification. The reticle is a German post type, with a dial adjustment on the scope for 100 to 600 meters, which moves the reticle vertically in the field of view.

Several numbers are stamped on the various parts of an M95 sniper. There will be an assembly number on the front scope base which should match the number on the right side of the rear scope ring. In addition to matching the scope to its base during assembly, this also indicates production number, as sniper rifles were numbered sequentially by AZF, where they were built. There will be another number on the left side of the rear scope ring, which should match the barrel serial number of the rifle or carbine.

Arthur Hayes $5,000 Prediction Draws Ever Closer As Market Drops "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Cryptocurrency price predictions have become as plentiful as trees in a forest, but many never come to fruition. Nonetheless, with the crypto markets move lower, some have begun to believe that Arthur Hayes $5k prediction could be in store for Bitcoin.

From $5k To $50k Arthur Hayes Extreme Bitcoin Prediction

Arthur Hayes, the CEO of BitMEX and a passionate cryptocurrency proponent, has not been one to back down from a tough question. When queried about his prediction for the price of Bitcoin come the end of 2018, Hayes stated, albeit somewhat jokingly, that Bitcoin will reach $50,000. As reported by NewsBTC, he doubled down on this sentiment in late June, drawing attention to the potential for a positive regulatory decision that could bring the price of the foremost digital asset past $50,000. Hayes stated:

Absolutely [I stand by $50,000 prediction by 2018]. I think something [bitcoin] that goes up to $20,000 in one year can have a correction down to $6,000. I think we can find a bottom in the $3,000 to $5,000 range, but we are one positive regulatory decision away, maybe an ETF approved by the SEC, to climbing through $20,000 and even to $50,000 by the end of 2018.

As per a tweet from Frank Chaparro, a fintech-focused Business Insider reporter, Arthur Hayes prediction could still be in store for the cryptocurrency market.

As Bitcoin neared $8,000 in late July, Hayes made an appearance on CNBC to triple down on his ambitious prediction, this time drawing attention to the fact that if Bitcoin falls and holds $5,000, that the $50,000 rally could be possible. He later added that he expects for Q3 and Q4 to be when the party is going to start again, as summer months...

Prescripticide: A Proposal for Action and a Request for Your Help "IndyWatch Feed Health"

We here are all aware that the medical model of mental illness, aka biological psychiatry, continues to dominate our system of treatment for individuals in emotional distress and for persons whose behavior is perceived to be annoyingly aberrant by others. Despite massive amounts of evidence which, in a fair world, would and should undermine this status quo, the pharmaceutical/psychiatric complex has worked tenaciously to create, maintain, and extend the dominant system which has led, as a consequence, to support from mainstream media, courts, the entertainment industry, the general public, and, it seems, every elected national official. This is despite the best efforts of many including dissident mental health practitioners, academics, journalists, and individuals who have been consigned to, and have survived, the prevailing mental health system to reform or eliminate the present system and replace it with one placing greater emphasis on ethical values, respectful treatment, and practices more likely to help clients have satisfactory lives and flourish. To date little progress has been made toward that end.

It is clear that the failed system of biological psychiatry and the harm it imposes upon its clientele will not be rectified until 1) It is perceived publicly to be of problematic concern upon the national stage, and 2) The factor, or factors, which have most successfully protected it from influential and persuasive assaults on its power and authority can be identified and neutralized.

Based on writings and talks by UCLA professor David Cohen, it appears that the primary factor which protects psychiatrys unwarranted police power and authority, and trust in its unsupported scientific claims, is that it is perceived as performing the function, not so much of assisting emotionally upset and confused individuals, but of shielding society from folks who appear disturbing, irritating and are, especially, believed to be dangerous. In fact, our social culture appears more than willing to ignore the harm perpetrated by the medical model of emotional distress and behavior, and the damage created by its pharmaceutical cures, so long as it retains a belief in and continues to value the extra-legal power it grants psychiatry to shock, drug, and incarcerate otherwise innocent individuals as necessary activities to protect society.

It would seem, then, that one logical step toward reducing societys trust in biological psychiatrys power to protect the public would be to reveal what appears to be strong evidence of a significant correlation, and in some instances, an actual causal relationship, between the use of prescribed psychoactive drugs and the commission of violent acts against oneself or others. This begs the question of by what means might this relationship of drugs to violence be brought to public attention, given the trust granted biological psyc...

Satirizing Identity Politics: An Interview with Lexi Freiman "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Lexi Freiman.

 

I first encountered Lexi Freimans work in a workshop at Columbia University. She had written a short story about a woman in a shifting, phantasmagoric relationship with a man whom the narration treated at some times as a nemesis and at others as a luminous object of desire. One scene from that story, where the female protagonist tends to her lovers clogged pores while cycling through states of adoration and fear, will stick in my mind until the day my mind ends. Though Im not even sure that Lexi remembers that story or my visceral, enthusiastic reaction to it, the piece is a perfect example of what I find most interesting about her work: its creativity, its dextrous and controlled use of surprise, its willingness to peer deeply into the realm of the improper. In her debut novel, Inappropriation, Lexi tells the story of Ziggy, a misfit teen at a swanky Australian private school whose search for identity leads her to New Agey communes and right-wing chat rooms and a series of increasingly problematic decisions. We sat down recentlyat separate computers in separate placesto discuss, over email, cyborgs and teenagers and the risky rewards of satire.

10 Numbers That Prove That Americas Current Financial Condition Is A Horror Show "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse

Americas long-term balance sheet numbers just continue to get progressively worse.  Unfortunately, since the stock market has been soaring and the GDP numbers look okay, most Americans assume that the U.S. economy is doing just fine.  But the stock market was soaring and the GDP numbers looked okay just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 as well, and we saw how that turned out.  The truth is that GDP is not the best measure for the health of the economy.  Judging the U.S. economy by GDP is basically like measuring the financial health of an individual by how much money he or she spends, and I will attempt to illustrate that in this article.

If I went out right now and got a whole bunch of new credit cards and started spending money like there was no tomorrow, would that mean that my financial condition had improved?

No, in fact it would mean that my long-term financial condition just got a whole lot worse.

GDP is a measurement of how much economic activity is happening in our society, and it is basically an indication of how much money is changing hands.

But just because more money is changing hands does not mean that things are going well.  What really matters is what is happening to assets and liabilities.  In other words, is wealth being built or is more debt just being accumulated?

Sadly, there are only a handful of bright spots in our economy.  A couple of very large tech companies such as Apple are accumulating wealth, but just about everywhere else you look debt is growing at an unprecedented pace.  Household debt has never been higher, corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, state and local government debt is at record highs, and the U.S. national debt is wildly out of control.

If I went out tomorrow and spent $20,000 with a bunch of new credit cards, I could claim that my personal GDP was soaring because I was spending a lot more money then before.  But my boasting would be pointless because in reality I would just be putting my family in an extremely precarious financial position.

Economic growth that is produced by continually increasing amounts of debt is not a positive thing.  I wish that more people understood this very basic concept.  The following...
