Calgary Zoo keeps unhatched king penguin chick alive by patching cracked egg

Calgary Zoo keeps unhatched king penguin chick alive by patching cracked egg CALGARY — Zookeepers in Calgary have rescued an unhatched penguin chick after patching its badly damaged shell with pieces of another egg. The Calgary Zoo says in a news release that animal care staff noticed fragments of the king penguin's shell inside the beach area of the birds' habitat over the August long weekend. The chick wasn't expected to hatch for about another week, so the veterinary team patched the porous shell with a piece of shell from a Humboldt penguin egg from years before, and the egg was placed in an electronic egg incubator. After a few rough days, the little chick tried to hatch by itself, piping through a small hole elsewhere in the egg.

3 minute explanation of Ethereum by inventor Vitalik Buterin . Ethereum is a platform that makes it possible for any developer to write and distribute

Hey Guys, Champagne Crypto here, thanks for tuning in. Today I want to talk about the President of Russia Vladimir Putin meeting with Vitalik Buterin the head developer of Ethereum. What does this mean for the future of crypto ? Should we be excited or concerned? Leave a comment below.

Multimillionaire 25-year-old crypto king Vitalik Buterin speaks to the Star about the future of Etherium© David Paul Morris Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin believes confidence in his platform will grow over time.

Vitalik Buterin, the 25-year-old co-founder of bitcoin rival Ethereum, is something of a pioneer in the cryptocurrency world. Fortune Magazine ranked the “skinny visionary” 22nd on its latest “40 Under 40” list.

In 2014, Buterin was awarded a $100,000 Peter Thiel Fellowship for his work in developing the Ethereum platform and associated digital currency Ether, along with an open source programming language that lets developers create decentralized blockchain applications.

Born in Moscow and raised in Toronto, the researcher, programmer and writer currently has an estimated net worth somewhere between $50 million and $150 million, with most of his wealth in the form of Ether.

Vitalik Buterin picked the name Ethereum after browsing Wikipedia articles about elements and science fiction, when he found the name, noting, "I immediately realized After the hard fork related to The DAO, Ethereum subsequently forked twice in the fourth quarter of 2016 to deal with other attacks.

He spoke during the Blockchain Futurist Conference at the Port Lands last week and talked to the Star about the cryptocurrency journey.

Does the industry need to do a better job of explaining the risks and potential public benefits?

Vitalik Buterin: One of the big things that needs to be communicated is the fact that five years ago the blockchain was just about bitcoin, but now it’s much bigger than just bitcoin. It’s split off into separate spaces that have a lot of different visions.

For bitcoin, the idea is that you have decentralized cryptocurrency running on blockchain and protected from corporate and state control that’s not going to deflate on you and it’s not going to get confiscated. The blockchain is just a tool to make that specific thing possible.

Vitalik Buterin is having some fun on Twitter, and it's actually a fascinating read. Reminder: the correct resolution to the "can an omnipotent god make a rock so heavy that even he cannot lift it?" paradox is: yes, he can, but as soon as the rock is created he will no longer be omnipotent, he'll be

That’s the bitcoin side. For Ethereum what we care about is taking the blockchain technology behind bitcoin that makes decentralized cryptocurrency possible and making it more general purpose so that other things can be decentralized in the same way.

What other things?

VB: One of the earliest examples of decentralized things happening on Ethereum that’s not a currency is DMS, which is a kind of decentralized alternative to the domain name system — basically decentralizing the URL [web address] phone book.

Another example is this project called OpenCerts. They take records of university degrees and other sorts of certificates, and save them on Ethereum blockchains so if you want to verify someone’s certificate you can scan blockchain, and check that it exists and that it has not yet been revoked.

A third example is the DAO [decentralized autonomous organization, a form of a smart contract where the bylaws of an the decentralized organization are embedded into code, bitcoin and Ethereum]. The idea is that you have these fairly complicated computer programs that are implementing the logic of different kinds of organizations’ application systems.

Retired Richmond fisherman wins record $60-million Lotto Max prize

Retired Richmond fisherman wins record $60-million Lotto Max prize Joseph Katalinic, a retired fisherman from Richmond, is B.C.’s newest multimillionaire after claiming a $60-million Lotto Max prize, the largest lottery jackpot in B.C. history. Katalinic matched all seven numbers in the July 26 draw. “I scanned the ticket at Seafair Centre (in Richmond) where I purchased the ticket,” he said. “I thought to myself that it can’t be true … I was so excited. I had to go to two other locations to scan my ticket again to make sure it was real.” The previous record for the largest lottery win in B.C. was $50 million. Asked how he celebrated, Katalinic said: “I had a shot of whiskey.

Another important space is enterprise watching. The idea says let’s use special purpose blockchain versions — sometimes called private blockchains — that are only half decentralized. You might have smaller industry consortiums that allow different companies in the same industry to collaborate and interoperate on a more open playing field.

It’s less radical than let’s replace everything and more incremental, but it’s the kind of fish that gets institutions on board more easily.

Is that the path of least resistance?

VB: It depends. Historically there have been times when both paths have been successful. I go and talk to companies and governments quite a bit and institutions are increasingly warming up to public chains.

What institutions?

VB: Microsoft would be an example. In some cases, banks. I’m not aware of Canadian banks that are doing active applications on blockchains. I know that historically RBC has had some interest.

What is the role of government? Is there a place for regulation?

VB: Governments do have a role and one of the roles is regulation. The usual concerns are about cryptocurrency exchanges where the basic idea is to do fundraising for a new project by directly selling tokens on the blockchains. There are debates whether specific kinds of ICOs [initial coin offerings] are legally categorized as securities.

'Lucifer' Star Rachael Harris and Husband Christian Hebel Divorcing After 4 Years of Marriage

'Lucifer' Star Rachael Harris and Husband Christian Hebel Divorcing After 4 Years of Marriage The actress is separating from her husband after four years of marriage. Harris submitted the paperwork on Wednesday at the Los Angeles County Superior Court. The cause of the separation is unknown. Harris, who is best known as Lucifer Morningstar’s therapist, Dr. Linda Martin, on the Fox series, and Hebel, a violist and concertmaster, got engaged in Capri, Italy, in September of 2014. They eloped eight months later in a small ceremony at New York's City Hall. The two are parents to 3-year-old son Henry and 1-year-old son Otto. This is Harris' second divorce.

Vitalik highlighted several areas in which blockchain and Ethereum will play a major role in the future . (V. Buterin ). The first possible application relates to the operation of currency itself. Once we are able to have decentralized cryptocurrencies, a vast number of other possibilities become available.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Vitalik Buterin claimed that the crypto and blockchain industry is “getting close to hitting a dead end.” Buterin explained that the period of explosive growth in the sphere is likely coming to an end because the level of superficial awareness about the industry has

So the regulators are grappling with the issue.

VB: The regulators are definitely grappling. They are undecided in many ways. The other area is governments as users of the technology. There has been exploration into central banks issuing digital currencies and using blockchains for different kinds of government records.

What are the roadblocks to more widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies?

VB: Scalability is a big bottleneck because the Ethereum blockchain is almost full. If you’re a bigger organization, the calculus is that if we join, it will not only be more full but we will be competing with everyone for transaction space. It’s already expensive and it will be even five times more expensive because of us. There is pressure keeping people from joining, but improvements in scalability can do a lot in improving that.

How do you improve scalability?

VB: The main problem with the current blockchain is this idea that every computer has to verify every transaction. If we can move to networks where every computer on average verifies only a small portion of transactions then it can be done better.

Can that be done without sacrificing security?

VB: There would be a sacrifice but it would be fairly modest.

Would scalability bring costs down?

VB: By a lot — by a factor of over 100 for every transaction.

After 16,000 traffic tickets, drivers still ignoring rules of King Street transit project

After 16,000 traffic tickets, drivers still ignoring rules of King Street transit project Since the King Street pilot project’s inception in November 2017 until July 2019, police have issued 16,000 tickets, but it seems drivers just aren't getting it. Kevin and Kelly van Niekerk, a married couple living in the area, say drivers disobeying the rules are a common sight. In fact, Kelly van Niekerk points out two cars that illegally follow the streetcar through the lights. "So that happens all the time and that's kind of frustrating to see because we obey the rules," said van Niekerk.

It is known Vitalik Buterin has a love affair with dogecoin, the fun meme digital currency that’s now valued at nearly 0 million, but some speculate While Ethereum was going through its most testing period last year , during many arguments about whether to stop a DAO thief or not, followed by the

Would that be enough to trigger mainstream adoption?

VB: Scaleability is not the only problem. There are still challenges with usability, with account security and with privacy that are improving. It’s also improving from a technical point of view, but even if the tech is there — how do you turn it into something people will use?

Are the risks being reduced?

VB: There has been a lot of work in tracking. Instead of having a wallet that you hold in a cryptocurrency app with the app being controlled by one computer key — which is risky — you have a smart program using more complicated mechanisms, using multiple keys so a lot of things would have to be hacked at the same time for you to lose your account. There is also the fear that the price will drop to zero, but that’s not a technical issue. I believe people will gain confidence over time.

The main thing that is driving a lot of people to be spooked about blockchain is the cybercurrency and it would definitely be better for the space if [price] peaks and drops were milder. It’s not something we can control.

It’s important to remember that there are ways to use and benefit from the blockchain that don’t expose you to those risks. If, for example, you are using blockchain to identify certifications, you only need enough cryptocurrency to pay transaction fees — basically a couple of dollars.
