Ted Bauman breaks down the limitations of Bitcoin as a Currency

     Just the other day, Ted Bauman took made some damning revelations about bitcoin’s capability to be used as a currency if its underlying technological infrastructure is not fundamentally improved in the near future. As currently formulated, bitcoin leaves a lot to be desired especially when it comes to the unreasonably long transaction processing time. He openly shared his reservations about the capability of bitcoin being used as a currency considering that users have to wait for an average of 10 minutes for a single transaction to complete processing successfully. According to him, this is made even worse with reports of some users who have had to wait for up to more than 40 minutes to process a single transaction as one user reported.

Basically defined, Bitcoin is a digital encrypted currency that only exists within a network of computers. This network is decentralized; meaning each computer on the network contains all the information about all transactions happening on the system and it updates in real-time. This decentralized approach is what makes bitcoin private, secure and also free from manipulation from governmental agencies such as the central bank.

Ted explains that the basic and fundamental use of any given currency is to basically process transactions in a secure and timely manner. He compares it with other transaction methods such as Visa which processes up to 1,700 transactions per second. Bitcoin fairs very poorly against this standards as it currently processes 6.5 transactions per second and it actually expected to worsen as more people adopt the use of bitcoin.

Efforts have been made to help curb this challenge but things are yet to look up. This is because of the tradeoff between the speed of processing transactions and the security and stability of the system as a currency. An increase in the speed of processing transactions can only be achieved by either reducing the amount of data being processed in each bitcoin mining block or increasing the size of the blocks of data being processed so that a lot more information can be processed at once. Both of these methods require some movement of data out of the blockchain which potentially reduces the security and stability of the currency.

Lacey And Larkin Frontera Fund’s Continued Advocacy for Human and Civil Rights

Protection of human rights is a paramount concern that needs a considerable address. Therefore, numerous groups exist that advocate for immigrant, human, and civil rights.

The institutions fight for the implementation of international standards regarding human rights that could empower the rule of law and uphold civilization. The groups include Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), The Advocates for Human Rights, and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The American Civil Liberties Union

ACLU fights for immigrant rights. It is a project that aims at enforcing and expanding civil rights and civil liberties of immigrants. The organization also dedicates itself towards fighting discrimination from both the private and public sectors, against the immigrants. For more than two decades, the group has been advocating for the protection of freedoms and rights of immigrants through public outreach, promotion, and targeted impact proceedings.

ACLU has been at the forefront of almost all the significant legal proceedings on behalf of the immigrants. The group focuses on challenging the policies that deny access to immigrants to the justice system.

Also, they question the laws that discriminate along nationality lines and allow indefinite execution and mandatory confinement.

ACLU works relentlessly in pursuit of liberty for everyone throughout the country as promised by the constitution. ACLU defends enshrined constitutional rights.

The group works in communities, legislatures, and courts. The team currently has over 1.6 million idealists and employs approximately 300 attorneys with numerous others as volunteers. ACLU fights for rights such as freedom of privacy, speech, and religion, despite the popularity of the cause. ACLU has an unparalleled dedication to its principles.

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Jim Larkin and his counterpart Michael Lacey were confident and reputable journalists that made a report on a county sheriff. The report revealed the existence of proceedings that required reporters’ notes regarding the story coverage of the sheriff. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Angel.co

The jury also demanded information about the citizens that read online stories about the sheriff. The two reporters got arrested one night at their homes by the anti-immigrant sheriff.

In a bid to defend their first amendment rights, the two reporters sued the local authority in which they ultimately prevailed. An investigation revealed that the warrants for their arrest were from a vengeful prosecutor and counterfeit. Larkin and Lacey received a settlement fund of 3.75 million dollars for wrongful detention.

The two started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund using the settlement money in 2014. The Frontera Fund supports other organizations that advocate for migrant, human, and civil rights throughout Arizona.

Larkin and Lacey are from humble beginnings which explains their desire to help other people fight for their rights. For example, Michael’s father was a construction worker. The foundation supported the Hispanic community when there was an extreme disregard for human and civil rights in Arizona.

The fund continues to help other organizations such as Arizona Justice that advocates for indigent Arizona inmates’ rights. The Lacey and Larkin’s group works alongside Border Angels to prevent immigrant deaths at the Mexican border and to fight for immigration reforms.

What Philly Purge Says About Omar Boraie

In the past, there were so many issues with New Brunswick. Not only did the city have a lot of crime but it also had a lot of violent crime which caused problems for families who wanted to live there. Sam Boraie lived there, but he didn’t think the city was that bad. He didn’t feel a need to move, but he could understand why other people wanted to move while they were living there. He just wanted a city where people could feel safe and happy with what they were doing. In addition to that, Omar Boraie felt it was something people would need to help change if they wanted it to happen.

When Omar Boraie realized there needed to be change and people needed to make it, he immediately recognized who would have to make that change. He knew he was the perfect person for the job. He had experience working for his own company, Boraie Development. He knew that he could make the changes as a developer that would make New Brunswick the perfect community for families and working people. He wanted to make it something that would be the best option possible for everyone who lived in the city.

According to centraljerseyworkingmoms.com, the first thing Omar Boraie was purchase buildings that were on a block. It took some time for him to collect them all, but he then owned his own little chunk of New Brunswick. Then, he tore them down. He knew he would have to make sure things were going the right way so he chose to tear them down to make things easier for people who wanted to live there. He knew there would be a lot of things that would make the business better or worse. He also knew his company could suffer if he didn’t do things the right way.

Omar Boraie was actually able to do everything the right way. He knew he would need to make changes but he also knew he would need to continue pushing to make the city the best it could be. For Omar Boraie to do this, he had to continue trying and making New Brunswick better. The Philly Purge is evidence it paid off. Now, the publication on Rutgers Magazine is talking about all the changes to New Brunswick. They are praising Omar Boraie for the work he did on the sellout development in the city that made everything better.

Louis Chenevert’s Success in the Aerospace Industry

Louis R. Chênevert, the renowned Canadian businessman, was born in Quebec. He was appointed the Chief Operating officer of UTC in March 2006. He joined Pratt& Whitney in 1999 where he worked as the president for six years. Previously, he spent 14 years at General Motors. He resigned as the CEO of United Technologies Corp in December 2004. Chenevert became the Business Council’s Vice Chairman of the Executive Committee in 2012. Three years later, he became an Exclusive Advisor at Goldman Sachs, which is a merchant banking division.

In May 2011, Louis was honored with an honorary doctorate by HEC Montreal as well as being named as the Person of the Year by Aviation Week & Space Technology, an aviation magazine for his remarkable efforts in the aviation industry.

Under Louis Chenevert’s leadership, UTC was able to influence its stakeholders and shareholders in a manner that made it remain at the top. Nonetheless, the U.S. post-war period profoundly contributed to the fall of UTC’s GDP. It also affected big companies such as Baldwin Locomotives. A few companies UTC included were able to run through the tough times. There were strict regulations and stiff competition from foreign countries. United Technologies Corporation was able to generate a net worth of $63 billion. Another massive impact that Louis Chenevert made on UTC is that it remained on top in aerospace innovation and space building. Under his leadership, there were fair wages to all employees and strict compliance with the environmental policies.

UTC manufactured some of the most advanced jet engines. In fact, their clientele base ranges from the military to commercial retailers.UTC pioneered the development of the largest escalators and elevators in the world.

Breaking Down The Philadelphia Salaries History Ban With Karl Heideck

In 2017 a landmark law was passed in Philadelphia that prohibited inquisition of candidate salary histories by employers. The city is the first to implement the law in the US. The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia challenged the constitutionality of the law. Comcast communications also voiced its opposition to the law citing that it would breach its First Amendment rights. As law expert Karl Heideck explains, some factors influenced the passing of the law.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management the legislation served to bridge the wage gap between females and males in Pennsylvania. Some of the stipulations in the rules forbid the use of independently obtained salary data without the consent of the candidate, directly inquiring salary history, using salary history as a mandate to gain employment and punishing candidates who do not disclose salaries. The rules apply to all parties and employers operating in Philadelphia. The proposed fines for violation is 2000 dollars for every instance.

The Eastern District of Pennsylvania decided the case filed by the Chamber of Commerce against the rule. The case signaled the possible hurdles that employee rights laws would face. At one point, the implementation process stagnated. In June 2017, the court dismissed the case because the complainant could not specify how the legislation would negatively impact businesses. The Chamber of Commerce failed to pinpoint the particular enterprises that would suffer because of the law. Either way, the court had given both sides a fair chance to argue their points. Even with the failure of this case, the likelihood that the law will face other challenges is unknown. Should the Chamber of Commerce file another appeal, it would have to prove that there are businesses that cannot operate without asking employee salaries.

Employers are likely to craft ways around the law to make it work for them. For instance, human resources can gather information on salaries online without the candidates’ knowledge. Nevertheless, some employers champion for equality and are willing to comply. Companies in the area have to reevaluate their hiring practices to incorporate the regulations.

Philadelphia based attorney, Karl Heideck specializes in compliance, risk management, business law and employment laws. Karl is a law graduate from James E. Beasley School of Law, Temple University and holds a B.A from Swarthmore College.

Karl Heideck publishes articles on law in Pennsylvanian on his blog and other online platforms. He has practiced law for over ten years now and represented businesses, corporates, and individuals. This makes Karl Heideck a reliable attorney in his field of specialization.
