First time in History: Bitcoin Value Skyrockets to New Record-Breaking $1,700




Accordin to BuyBtcoInNigeria For the first time in history, bitcoin has topped $1,700 in value. This is a 85-percent gain in the cryptocurrency in 2017, and a 43-percent gain in value in only one month.

Since May 2016, market capitalization on bitcoin has nearly quadrupled, from $7.16 billion in May 2016 to $27.9 billion today.

Major drivers of the trend were Japan allowing bitcoin to become legal tender in the Land of the Rising Sun (albeit with lots of oversight), and Russia's announcement that they'd rule on cryptocurrency legality in 2018.

Serbia’s Post-Electoral Protest Was A Charade



by Stephen Karganovic
Just as a week ago we speculated might happen, Serbia’s mass anti-regime protests, which started as if on cue the day after the apparently “not so free and unfettered” April 2 Presidential election, have now abated significantly, but without any obvious public reason.[1] None of the protesters’ objections (many of them legitimate and sensible) were seriously entertained by the authorities. If we take the Easter weekend as the watershed separating daily mass protests involving tens of thousands in twenty cities and towns across Serbia from post-holiday crowds, shrunken to barely one or two hundred, one must wonder: what changed over that weekend? Did thousands of former dissidents suddenly get religion, decide to turn the other cheek to the regime, and stay at home? Or was there from the beginning of these “spontaneous” protests more to it than met the eye?

Syrian Republican Guard: History And Capabilities

The Syrian Republican Guard was established in 1976 as an elite force within the Syrian Arab Army essentially as an internal security force intended to protect senior government officials from attacks by anti-government insurgents and also to serve as a check on possible “Bonapartism” within the SAA. Since its establishment, it has enjoyed privileged access to funding and resources.  Initially consisting of three mechanized brigades, each with a tank battalion and two or three mechanized battalions, its strength was later expanded through the addition of a separate tank battalion, three airborne and/or commando brigades, and two security regiments which provide bodyguards to senior officials including the President.  The Republican Guard is staffed by two-year draftees drawn from all over Syria, though it also contains a large number of volunteers serving in key leadership positions.  At full strength, the Republican Guard had some 25 thousand troops, though due to the wartime attrition, they are almost certainly lower. The Republican Guard has tended to be among the first units to receive the newest equipment, such as the T-72 MBTs.

US Commited a ‘Blatant Agression’ Act Against Syrian Army Base – General Staff

Syrian General Staff called the recent US strike on Ash Sha’irat military airfield near Homs in Syria a ‘blatant agression’ act aimed against Syrian Army.  The Syrian Defense Ministry also added that this strike puts the US as an ally of such terrorist groups as Daesh and Jabhat Fatah al Sham (formerly known as the al-Nusra Front).  The US launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

Russia Suspends Memorandum With US on Flight Safety in Syria – Foreign Ministry

Russia has suspended its memorandum of understanding on air safety over Syria with the United States following the deadly US missile attack on the Sha’irat airfield, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday.

“Russia suspends the memorandum on the prevention of incidents and ensuring air safety during operations in Syria reached with the US,” the ministry said in a statement.
The United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

Putin Considers US Attack in Syria Aggression Against Sovereign State – Kremlin

The United States’ missile strikes on a military airfield in Syria violates international law and represents an act of aggression against a sovereign state under a far-fetched pretext, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

MOSCOW— The US launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

“President [Vladimir] Putin regards the US attacks on Syria as an aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law, and under a trumped-up pretext at that,” Pesov told reporters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also sees the latest US missile strikes on a military airfield in Syria as an attempt to distract from the mounting civilian casualties in Iraq, the Kremlin added.
“Putin also sees the attacks on Syria by the US as an attempt to divert the international community’s attention from the numerous casualties among civilians in Iraq.”

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had confirmed that Syrian armed forces do not possess chemical weapons, the Kremlin cited Russian President Vladimir Putin as saying Friday while warning of the danger of ignoring terrorist use of chemical weapons.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement after the US attack that there were no discussions or prior contacts between the United States and Moscow ahead of the missile strike on the Syrian base.

“The fact of the destruction of all chemical weapons stockpiles has been recorded and confirmed by the OPCW, a specialized UN unit,” Peskov told reporters.
“At the same time, in Putin’s opinion, total disregard for the use of chemical weapons by terrorists only drastically aggravates the situation,” Peskov said.

US decision to Strike Syria was made Ahead of Idlib Chemical Attack, Used as Pretext to show Force – Russian Foreign ministry



US attack in Syria is nothing else than a show of force, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday. The decision to attack Syria was made ahead of Idlib chmical incident, used as a pretext for this demonstration of strength.

The US missile strikes on Syria airfield os a clear act of aggression against sovereign Syria, the Russia Foreign Ministry said. It is obvious that the US missile attack in Syria was prepared “in advance,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated. “It is clear that the decision to conduct the strike [in Syria] was made in Washington before the incident in Idlib, which was used as a pretext for this demonstration of strength,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

The US missile attack on the Sha’irat airfield in Syria further degrades Russian-US relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry added. “The actions taken today by the US further destroy Russian-US relations,” the ministry said in a statement. The United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

“Without bothering to figure anything out, the US moved toward a demonstration of strength, to military resistance against a country that is fighting international terrorism,” the ministry said.



Daesh Militants Attacked Syrian Army Positions Simultaneously With US Strike




Daesh (banned in numerous countries) terrorist fighters had attacked the Syrian armed forces at the same time and in the same vicinity as the US missile strike on its airfield near Homs, an informed source told Sputnik on Friday.

The source said the terrorists launched an attack on a Homs-Sha’irat stretch of highway at around 23:00 GMT and held their territory for over an hour until the arrival of reinforcements.
“Is it a coincidence that the IS [Daesh] fighters attacked one of the defensive positions of the Homs-Palmyra route simultaneously with the US attack on Sha’irat?” the source said.
The US launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat near Homs late Thursday. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on Damascus.

News In Nigeria



Mark Twain once said that there are two forces that can carry light to all corners of the world – sun and Associated Press.  Today, we can argue about ‘light’ in news, which tell us about horrible things happening all over the world. In better case, there is an opportunity to hear something close to positive at the end to let people feel less hopeless. Nevertheless, humans need to know news, at least to understand the world they live in.

Long ago, people found out news thanks to some nomads or other travellers. And it was really good, considering that no other source of information was available. However, these stories were retold by people or retold by someone hundreds of times. What was the chance that a person heard a true or at least the initial version of a story? Moreover, people didn’t travel as fast in those days. So-called news was delivered in weeks or months after an event happened.

And what do we have nowadays? Even the diversity of sources letting find out what is going on is huge, not even to mention the diversity of news. The newspaper is the traditional one. Some say newspapers are going to disappear someday, but it doesn’t sound like truth. The argument may be naïve, but if they still exist, it means that people need printed press. Maybe, in latter amounts, but they still do.
TV is more interactive. You don’t have to read, but receive a picture and sound instead. It can be even a relaxing activity if news aren’t scary or depressive.

News In Nigeria
Finally, the Internet. Among its numerous functions and advantages, cognitive function is one of the basic ones. The Internet was always meant to keep people connected – with each other and with the world.

Why Hillary Clinton is a bigger concern for China than Donald Trump



by Pepe Escobar for The South China Morning Post
So you think Donald Trump is the biggest threat to world peace? And Barack Obama engineered America’s “pivot to Asia”?
It was actually Hillary Clinton, emphasising the necessity of a “strategic turn” for the United States, who launched the pivot to Asia in an October 2011 article titled “America’s Pacific Century”. The tone was martial: “Our military is by far the strongest and our economy is by far the largest.” The South China Sea duly featured: “Half the world’s merchant tonnage flows through this water”. Informed observers didn’t need a manual to spot Clinton’s subtle cue alerting them to the danger of China’s “nine-dashed line”.

Life Sciences Investors and Pharma/Biotech Corporations



IoT and Connected Health are attractive opportunities for Life Sciences Investors and Pharma/Biotech Corporations.

The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) has significantly accelerated Connected Health. IoT is the vast network of items and devices that connect to the internet, regularly via a wireless connection so that data can be shared, stored, sent, managed and used effectively with maximum efficiency and security.

Life Sciences Investors

For Life Sciences VC and PE investors, investing at the interaction of data and healthcare is a strong value proposition.  Most of the data assets have low intrinsic risk compared with Life Sciences assets/opportunities. So a traditional Life Sciences investment manager, investing in digital health is taking a low risk.

The gestation periods associated with IoT/Connected Health investment opportunities are much shorter than those of Life Sciences assets/opportunities, making returns on investment higher.  There might be market inefficiency due to the convergence of two seemingly different sectors, giving one a chance to invest at a favourable price.  Finally, attractive exit options exist as the major healthcare providers, pharma/biotech etc. are interested in the Digital health area.

For pharma/biotech corporations, entering the IoT/Connected Health space is critical. Most pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporations are seeking to enhance their assets/brands, and adding a digital facet is a relatively easier, cost-effective and time-efficient option. With the general trend towards 'outcome based pricing', most pharma/biotech corporations have demonstrated (are demonstrating) increased adherence and prevention, leading to better outcomes for patients, less hospitalisation and cost savings for the healthcare providers. This translates into a persuasive real-world evidence-based value story that payers prefer.

Operational efficiency gain is another reason for pharma/biotech corporations to be partnering with data/device makers, particularly in areas such as clinical trials, regulatory filings, post-marketing monitoring, etc.
IoT/Connected Health per se is not a core competency of pharma/biotech corporations, so they routinely complement this by engaging in licensing and partnering deals. Rivalry among the pharma/biotech is driving many deals in the Digital health area covering multitude diseases and the trend is likely to continue. This in turn increases the likelihood of successful exit for investors, data and connected health companies.

Military Coup in Turkey SITREP Updated, by Scot



Pro-NATO military coup failed after a few hours. The rebels immediately closed the straits of Dardanelles for all ships to stop Russian ships traveling to and from Syria. The coup organizers wanted closer relations with NATO and Washington. Turks want closer relations with Russia, and no Washington. Turks want to survive and eat, and to stay warm in coming winter. They need Russia’s market and Russia’s gas for these. Everyone knows by now that any pro- Washington coup means war, foreign occupation, collapse of economy, misery and civilian deaths. Everyone talks about Ukraine as an example.

See the best Home Alarm Systems



In any event, these frameworks ought to be made out of a control board, remote entryway and window sensors, capable of being heard caution, and ideally some kind of reconnaissance camera with a movement sensor. The main genuine real distinction between a DIY home alert framework and an expert one is the all day, every day video observing administration accommodated you.

This expert observing is turning out to be less vital as D I Y frameworks move forward. Once a sensor has been set off, the control board will consequently transfer that data to the property holders telephone or email by means of either a WiFi, cell, or landline association.

Most the greater part of the top brands offer basically proportional gadgets and components. A large portion of them even utilize the same hardware maker. Advancements that power the perpetually growing home caution industry are getting to be all inclusive. What does this mean for the client? Truly the main significant contrast between brands is their evaluating plans and included components.

People and firms that operate from countries with minimal capital control measures are accustomed to transferring money out of these countries and receiving money from foreign parties reasonably quickly with minimal fuss, provided that the transfers are for legitimate purpose. Needless to say, in present circumstances, all countries with modern banking institutions have put set up regulatory measures to detect, identify and penalize potential money transfers of illegal nature (for example money laundering).

How To Get Food At A Nigerian Wedding



http://ua.afrishoponline.com/
Don’t think there anything more painful than watching others eat their share of the wedding jollof rice while the only thing you were able to get is serviette to dry your tears.
I’m usually so mad that once I leave the wedding, I stop by nearest fast food and throw a wedding buffet where I am the only attendee.
I have been a victim far too many times that I have been left with no choice but to research on all the possible ways to avoid this.

The controversy about Stalin – a “basket” of preliminary considerations



When introducing Jimmie Moglia’s video series about Stalin I promised to share with you my own take on this most controversial personality.  Let me immediately say that what I will write below is most definitely not some seminal analysis of the life and personality of Stalin, but rather few more or less disjointed thoughts on a topic which I still feel that I do not understand.

The figure of Stalin has always been a controversial one.  Some thought of him as the “leader of all times and all nations” (“вождь всех времен и народов”) while other saw him like the epitome of evil, a genocidal maniac who killed more people than any other individual in history.  In reality, that kind of polarization is probably a strong indication of the fact that this issue is a very complex one and that a simple black and white answer is unlikely to correctly evaluate the person of Stalin and his legacy.  The fact that there really was a “personality cult” during Stalin’s life and that it was followed by a emotional denunciation by Khrushchev only made things worse.  Stalin is most definitely a polarizing figure and I myself have been submitted to that polarization from my early childhood.
