Red Dead Redemption Damned Enhancement Project is a port of RDR to the PC. The port was announced as cancelled recently when Take-Two Interactive sued the port’s creator. Take-Two do not deserve your support, and definitely don’t deserve any sympathy. Modders are an important part of a game community. They can keep certain games going for years after their release. Mods have even produced entirely new genres, such as the MOBA. It seems like Take-Two Interactive has decided that they don’t like the work of one particular Red Dead Redemption modder. The news came out the day after Christmas that Take-Two had filed a lawsuit against modder Gaming Damned. The lawsuit seems to be aimed at stopping the development of an enhanced PC port of Red Dead Redemption. Because, apparently even though it’s been nearly a decade, Take-Two doesn’t want anyone else porting their game either. Red Dead Redemption Belongs on PC The mod was based on an emulated console version of Red Dead Redemption. It features, or rather featured, enhanced textures and higher resolutions. Effectively, it wasn’t just porting…Dec 31, 2019

Bitcoin (BTC) bulls charged aggressively yesterday and the price is currently trading well above the $7,000 mark. It is no longer a do or die situation for the bulls as they have assumed control for the foreseeable future. We can see the price trading within a falling wedge that may soon lead to further upside. It wouldn’t be surprising to see BTC/USD trade north of $8,000 if it ends up breaking out of this wedge. When the price declined down to the $6,587 mark, a lot of retail bears got overly excited and entered aggressive longs. Many of them were taken aback by yesterday’s rally and many will yet be surprised as the market keeps going up. The thing about such rallies is that they are quite aggressive in nature and more like pumps. The intent is to shake out the bears as quickly as possible without giving them an opportunity to cut their losses or get out of the market. So, the price trades sideways for a while and the bears start to think it can still fall down…Nov 28, 2019

The leadership question is top of mind for many people here in the United States and throughout the world. The idea that leaders are trustworthy, honest, and can be relied on to operate in the best interest of the public, the employee, the student, the parishioner, or even the shareholder has been shattered. No matter what industry or organizational structure—business, politics, nonprofit, religious, entertainment or sports—examples abound where leaders have violated their trusted role and experienced a public downfall. As a result, confidence in our leaders and the institutions they lead has diminished, sometimes to the point of no return. Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Q4 2019 hedge fund letters, conferences and more In these fast paced, ever-changing, turbulent, and most stressful times, a major challenge that all leaders face is how to reduce skepticism and build greater trust and confidence in their role, their decisions, and in the organization they lead. Mark Sanborn wrote about six warning signs of why leaders fail: a shift in focus; poor communication; risk aversion; ethics slip; poor self-management;…Feb 26, 2020
Bitcoin’s firm bout of sideways trading over the past few days has muddied the clarity that some analysts previously had about the strength of BTC’s recent uptrend, as some traders are now eyeing its recent highs of $9,200 as a mid-term top. It is important to note, however, that the crypto’s bulls have been ardently defending against a drop into the lower-$8,000 region, which does point to vitality amongst buyers. Now, analysts are noting that an abundance of increasingly bullish macro factors could suggest that the crypto will soon see a movement up towards its 2019 highs. Bitcoin Remains Caught in a Bout of Sideways Trading At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up marginally at its current price of $8,675, which is around the level at which it has been trading at for the past several days. Yesterday, bears did attempt to spark another sharp sell-off in hopes of erasing some of BTC’s recent gains, but this was quickly met with a significant amount of buying pressure that helped propel the cryptocurrency up to highs of nearly $8,800….Jan 22, 2020
Anticipation over the up and coming Bitcoin block reward halving continues to make headlines. But Bitcoin Cash, which forked from the original chain in the middle of 2017, already had its halving on Wednesday, April 9th. Since then, the fifth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has experienced several setbacks, which has led to more heated discussion regarding the already controversial token. Bitcoin Cash Experiences Wobble After Halving Last week, Bitcoin Cash mining rewards were cut from 12 BCH per block to 6.25 BCH. Miners of the BCH network, as a result, have had their revenues cut in half. Analysis of how this has affected price shows a bearish response. On the day before the halving, BCH closed at $268. But since then, the price has been on a downward trend, pausing briefly over the Easter holiday weekend to continue its slide today. Currently, BCH is trading at $220, which represents an 18% loss from the pre-halving price. Having said that, over the same period, a declining volume indicates exhaustion and therefore a possible reversal may be in the cards. However, a…Apr 13, 2020
Alibaba and Tencent stocks indicate resilience amid the coronavirus stock market effect. China, the first country to be hit by the deadly coronavirus in early December, now aims to be a stabilizing force in the global market. Coronavirus has almost become the order of the day in mainstream media since it was first reported in Wuhan, China. The virus has pushed beyond the ground zero to infect countries almost in all continents. As a result, it’s not only the human health status that has been adversely affected but also the stock market at large, since it has experienced the worst sell-off in recent times.
