Hehe. The judges were sure she was lip syncing so they made her sing a cappella.

Is she what those Eastern European mail-order brides look like? I might need to look into that  :o :P

It's no different than any other investment. Do your research, invest your own money and then check back in a month or two, and make adjustments as additional research warrants. Unlike other investments, the fact that regulation has yet to catch up with the crypto world means it is an especially brutal business. That only means you need to be more disciplined and stand pat if you have invested in something that your research says is worthwhile. Most new cryptos take several years for them to mature into higher-utility, higher-revenue product.

FACT: MLK led a fundamentally political movement, and denying this truth is not only an affront to his legacy, but a vile attempt to actively dismantle everything he worked for

You guys sound like a bunch of crypto-fiends. If I invested in this stuff I know there's a good chance I'd make a bunch of money but I think I would go mad, obsessing over it.

Time to add to my recent comments about seeing more out of state license plates, especially from East Coast states, around town...

From Crains: Greg Deming, property manager at the new Worthington Yards in Cleveland's Warehouse District, said he's been surprised by the number of people relocating to Cleveland for new jobs this winter and believes it's the busiest of the last four.

"Usually, December through February are slow," Deming said. "I've never seen it like this. We'll be filled by springtime."

BTW, my photo of these two cars with New York state plates was taken next to the newly converted office-to-housing Lakewood Center North building in downtown Lakewood.

I think you are getting too caught up in Ram's creeping comments. it is an obvious troll job.

If after taking a stance last fall against trolling the OU admins want to allow it then fine by me.  Just thought we were cracking down on trolling is all.

Oh, don't worry, we're watching.

You're a hoot :)
Non-Students leasing at The Edge.

At The Edge, a student housing development that opened last July at 1750 Euclid Ave., there was a surprising benefit from strong demand for one-bedrooms.

Constance Campbell, regional manager of Peak Campus Management, said the company leased several apartments to young professionals working downtown because so few were available in the market. She said she could not say how many non-students are in the building because of federal fair housing laws. She declined to disclose specific leasing levels but said they are beyond expectation.
That still wouldn't explain why this would be the best metric compared to things like GDP.  Seems so random.

It measures the ways and means of a region by what people actually do - not by city, county, MSA, of even CSA, which are more arbitrary. I'm not saying it's a perfect measure, just that it's an encompassing one.

Why should banks set up their own blockchain if there's no future in it?  I hope you know the answer -- because there is a future. And why should there be separate, legit blockchain/channel companies? I trust you know the answer to that as well -- because it's easier to capitalize the whole delivery/support infrastructure of blockchain by issuing a digital coin than it is by issuing stock.

This isn't an orthodox religion, Jake. Nor does blockchain have enough infrastructure support or educational awareness (as this thread has revealed). Should the president of General Motors in the 1920s have refused to use a train or streetcar? When the GMs of blockchain develop the support/infrastructure and familiarity to maximize their utilization, the only people left using fiat and traditional record keeping will be the same people who don't know how to use the Internet for anything more than gossip or sharing pics.
