Tasnim – A Swedish company has come up with an innovative solution which both bypasses US sanctions and does away with the need for banks to process transactions with Iran, a report said. Brave New World Investments AB is reportedly accepting deposits in bitcoin which it converts to Iranian rial and invests in equities on the Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE). With some US sanctions against Iran still in place in spite of a nuclear agreement, major banks have been refusing to finance deals with Tehran out of fear of running afoul of opaque American laws. Brave New World has become the first known company in Europe to incorporate without a bank account and handled all the initial funding in bitcoin. The team behind the venture is experienced in finance and technology in Europe and the Middle East, according to Finance Magnates, a global information portal offering online financial trading news and research.

But that brings very valuable, healthy debates which sometimes leads to strong positions and points of view,“ she says. Whenever PoolMyRide founders, Rajat Talwar and Amrita Gill, have an argument related to work, they put it to vote and let others in the company weigh in. “We never take each other's side just because we are married but always put our honest opinion forward,“ says Amrita, who takes care of non-tech aspects of the business like testing the user interface, hiring people, managing accounts, attending seminars etc. Her husband Rajat and his brother Abhishek look after the technology behind the app. Abhishek Daga, who set up travel startup Thrillophilia in 2010 with wife Chitra, says there is no rule book for conflict management. “We are different people and so conflicts do happen,“ he says adding that like other founders, understanding and respecting each other's role works well.

This environmental risk raised by long-term PM2.5 exposure was two to three times higher among older women with two copies of the APOE4 gene, compared with women who had only the background genetic risk with no APOE4 gene. Nonattainment areas are not meeting the EPA standard. Areas designated unclassifiable do not have enough verified monitoring data to show they are meeting the standard, but are working with EPA to improve their data. USEPA Mouse models For the laboratory studies, we exposed female mice with Alzheimer genes to nano-sized air pollution for 15 weeks. The air particle collection technology , invented by our colleague Constantinos Sioutas from USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering, collects air particles from the edge of USC’s campus as a representative air sample from urban areas. The experimental data showed that mice systematically exposed to this particulate matter accumulated larger deposits of proteins called beta-amyloid in their brains.

https://youtu.be/uZGFTmK6Yk4 It's no secret that Boing Boing (along with over 4 million other netizens) loves the Primitive Technology channel on YouTube . We've covered this channel numerous times (about a guy making primitive tech in the wilds of Far North Queensland, Australia with nothing but the gym shorts on his ass). I anxiously await each new episode and am like a kid at Christmas when I get the alert that a new one is up. But this month, thanks to one of the reader comments, I made an amazing discovery. The videos are completely silent. The un-named survivalist, who some have dubbed "Prim," is really good at showing you what he's doing so that you can understand it without verbal explanation, and he writes up decent notes that are published along with the videos. But then I saw the comment: "[Turns on captions] That clever bastard has been talking to us the entire time!!" Whoa.

I really wish that phone manufacturers would make up their minds and choose just one fast charging technology. Some phones use Qualcomm Quick charge, others use a 5V 3A power supply via Type-C (I won't even get started on those who do something else completely different). It's annoying that each group of devices requires a different charger to charge at its peak potential. That is, unless you have one charger that can do both.

a lot of companies including some banks are withdrawing their advertising from Google and some of these technology companies that they are finally taking notice, but they should have done this before. There is a general feeling that there is no moral, they say they are not publishing.
