Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Activist Greta Thunberg was among attendees who want the world’s leaders to prioritize fighting climate change. AP Photo/Michael Probst We live in a world threatened by numerous existential risks that no country or organization can resolve alone, such as climate change, extreme weather and the coronavirus. But in order to adequately address them, we need agreement on which are priorities – and which aren’t. As it happens, the policymakers and business leaders who largely determine which risks become global priorities spent a week in January mingling in the mountainous resort of Davos for an annual meeting of the world’s elite. I participated in a global risk assessment survey that informed those at the Davos summit on what they should be paying the most attention to. The results, drawn from experts in a broad range of disciplines including business, happen to be very different from what company CEOs specifically see as the biggest threats they face. As a philosopher, I found the differences curious. They highlight two contrasting ways of seeing…Jan 29, 2020
Known as one of the most important technology companies in the world, Microsoft has been leading the way in the development of new techs since its creation more than four decades ago.

It is looking increasingly likely that Bitcoin’s recent dip to lows of $6,500 will mark a long-term bottom for the cryptocurrency, as its bulls have been able to propel its price higher and sustain their momentum, with BTC now targeting a movement to $8,000. Analysts are now noting that Bitcoin is clearly shifting its recent downtrend in favor of its bulls, which may mean that significantly further upside is imminent for the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin Surges Towards $8,000 as Bulls Build Momentum At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading up over 2% at its current price of $7,800, which marks a notable climb from its daily lows of $7,300 that were set yesterday when bears attempted to thwart the momentum that bulls have been building over the past several days. Bitcoin’s surge that first started when it tapped $6,500 last week has been surprisingly strong and marks the first time that bulls have sustained an upwards movement over an extended period of time in the month since BTC retraced from its late-October highs of $10,600. In the near-term, analysts anticipate…Nov 30, 2019
Boris is finally facing Corbyn head to head in what you would have thought would have been quite an election campaign, but there’s no Macron singing to En March here, no Trump or Sanders preaching to the rallying quire, no posters or gratifies. In fact at Piccadilly Circus we’d be surprised if most didn’t say: election, what election? Thus Britain, the home of modern democracy, where the choice so stark you’d think, and yet many wonder if there is a choice at all. In venues across the country, even in those of artists where they sing to each other for their own pleasure, the name of Boris or Corbyn is unmentionable. The mood is sombre as revolts rage across the world. Here that revolt is not on the streets, but in the hair-style of the young, their punkness and sophistication, and in their songs. Boris vs Corbyn you’d think would be the great fight of the age. The aristocrat vs the commoner, the rich vs the champaign socialist, but as it happens neither inspires. Both risk being rejected. Skimming their…Nov 25, 2019

My funds just cleared and I wanted to buy right at the line.” Bullish Comments About Ethereum Emerge in Reddit. (Source: Twitter) With all the buzz around Ethereum, a contrarian could argue that instead of a bullish impulse, a downswing could be on the works. But is it possible? A Correction Ahead of Ethereum Ethereum is currently being held by a significant support level that sits around $200. However, its on-chain volume appears to have leveled off for over the past couple of weeks, based on data from Santiment. Ever since the…May 26, 2020

Bitcoin daily price since Oct 19. (Source: tradingview.com) Analyst, Mati Greenspan attributes this run of form to US fiscal factors, including the ever-booming stock market. While discounting any notion of the heightening coronavirus pandemic being a factor. As such, at the present time, Greenspan sees Bitcoin behaving more like a risk asset, rather than a safe haven. Scientists Believe The Coronavirus Originated In Animals The outbreak of coronavirus began making headlines at the turn of the year. Reports centered around cases of pneumonia-like symptoms from a virus that did not match other known viruses. Symptoms include tiredness, trouble breathing, high temperature, and a sore throat. Research shows that the coronavirus is similar in structure to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). And much like SARS, it’s airborne, with touching infected people and objects also thought to transmit the disease. The onset of the virus…Jan 28, 2020
