Jed McCaleb looks forward to cryptocurrency technology revolutionalizing the world market

Jed McCaleb looks forward to cryptocurrency technology revolutionalizing the world market.


Jed McCaleb has always had the passion for using innovative technology to reduce human suffering. He is the Chief Technical Officer at the company he co-founded He is responsible for spearheading the company to reach its maximum technical development. He has pioneered several successful projects namely eDonkey, Mt. Gox, and Ripple. eDonkey was rated as the leading file-sharing platforms of its time Mt. Gox was started in 2011 and was the first Bitcoin exchange platform. The idea for Stellar Development Foundation came about as a result of Jed McCaleb trying to solve the aspect of the financial infrastructure that rendered most people with little or no resources. Jed McCaleb is positive that the modes of global payments, stock markets, and fundraising were bound to change with the change in technology. Sharing with Jed McCaleb spoke how the payment network in the world was evolving. The Stellar organization is an example of a platform bound to bring revolution in the market. The system offers room for trading using currencies that are backed by the government including dollars and euros. The network also has a less time for settling transactions that are faster than other cryptocurrencies such as bitcoins. A system for payments that are of cross-border in nature is being developed IBM using the network provided by Stellar. A financial firm that conducted research reported that the offering of coins had raised over $9billion in just four years and this indeed shows that it is a new system for raising funds. This type of model for fundraising is more effective as the sales of tokens are transacted directly to the investors. The investors can then buy digital coins and in the long run contributing to a project. Jed McCaleb looks forward to those assets that are not in crypto form have a possibility of being made digital by using the same principle and technology. Some organizations have already started this venture of using bitcoins to buy stocks. Jed McCaleb argues that in the future the market would be so flooded that a centrally controlled system would not be able to handle and looks forward to funds being tokenized.

A History Of The Modifications Of The Trabuco

Trabuco were an advanced form of a catapult. It uses a counterweight to power a swinging arm which then throws a projectile. It was first designed in Ancient China and slowly spread westward. It is thought by many that it was the Avars who did much of this spreading because they were a nomadic people who continuously moved west away from China. In Europe they were first used by the Byzantine Empire around 590 AD.

The first Trabuco are known as Traction Trabuco. This first version didn’t have a counterweight and instead was powered by men pulling on a long length of rope. They were used to topple fortifications such as walls and castles. They were also fired at troops. During the Battle of Caishi in 1161 Trabuco were loaded with payloads consisting of sulfur and lime which were fired at ships when they came within range.

The next version of the Trabuco was called the Hand Trabuco. One person could operate these devices. This one was created by Nikephoros II Phokas of Byzantine around the year 965 BC according to He had several of them which were used to disrupt any formations making it easier for his men to defeat their enemies.


The Counterweight Trabuco was invented by a military researcher who worked for Saladin, the military genius who founded the Ayyubid dynasty in the area of Egypt and Syria. This device was far more powerful because it relied on a one-ton counterweight to provide thrust rather than on manpower. This was first used in 1097 during the Siege of Nicaea. It could throw much larger payloads than earlier version at a farther distance.

Among the battles that saw the use of the Counterweight Trabuco were the Siege Of Acre in 1189-1191 according to At this battle the forces of Saladin were arrayed against the forces of England and France. Phillip II of France gave names to two of his Trabuco during this fight. Once was called “Bad Neighbor” and the other one was called “God’s Stone-Thrower”.

When these type of Trabuco were first invented they could throw a stone weighing around 1750 pounds. The range was a little under 1000′. Most stones weighed more around 110-220 pounds, though. Later versions could launch a stone weighing as much as 3300 pounds. They could be fired very rapidly. In 1147 during the Siege of Lisbon, for instance, their two Trabuco could be fired every 15 seconds.


How Lawrence Bender Changed the Independent Film Genre With Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction introduced a new twist into the crime adventure film genre.

The movie showed that gangsters can be clever and witty speakers with interesting quirks and complex personalities.

The 1994 film built on the momentum sparked by Lawrence Bender’s and Quentin Tarantino’s earlier indie success with Reservoir Dogs.

In Pulp Fiction, pretty much every character is involved in some villainous conduct as the vignettes of several seemingly unrelated stories build their individual dramatic tensions into one grand highly-interconnected tale.

Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer begin the film with their “clever” scheme to rob a diner.

After the introduction credits finish, John Travolta and Samuel Jackson discuss European culture while driving on an errand for their boss Marsellus Wallace, played by Ving Rhames.

In another short story within the film’s plot, Bruce Willis and Maria de Medeiros scheme to escape the wrath of Marsellus Wallace sparked by boxer Willis’ betrayal by winning a fight in which he was paid to take a dive by Rhames.

As the story progresses, Travolta entertains Ving Rhames’, played by Uma Thurmon, to a night on the town at a 1960‘s themed diner while Rhames is out of town.

In an intriguing storyline twist, Travolta winds up being executed by Willis after Willis discovers Travolta attempting to stake out Willis’ apartment.

In the final act of the film, Travolta and Jackson need to dispose of a body that Travolta fatally shot by accident and the pair are directed to the home of “the Wolf,” Marsellus Wallace’s cleanup man played by Harvey Keitel.

After Keitel’s assistance, Travolta and Jackson decide to have breakfast at a diner, where the story comes full circle to the opening scene with Plummer and Roth robbing the same diner.

The movie did receive some criticism for its portrayal of Hollywood’s underground culture. In particular, Travolta’s and Thurman’s substance use within the film had been criticized as glamorizing addiction. However, the actors’ portrayed vices in fact add dimensionality to the characters, which in other films are portrayed with much more flat treatments.

Pulp Fiction introduced a boon to the independent film industry, resulting in several large and small budget copycat productions.

Lawrence Bender

Born in October, 1957 Lawrence Bender is most well known for his work as an American film producer. Bender has received three best picture Academy Award nominations and has received numerous other awards throughout his motion picture career.

The Bronx, NY native is known to make cameo appearances in several of the films he produces. In Pulp Fiction, Lawrence Bender is credited as the diner patron referred to in the film’s credits as “long haired yuppie scum.”

David Giertz Shares How He Brings Ideas To Fruition

After three decades, David Giertz is well known in the financial sector as someone who doesn’t hesitate to act. His quick thinking has earned him several impressive opportunities, such as the position of president of Nationwide Financial’s Sales and Distribution Organization. Succeeding in the financial sector for so many years requires more than hard work. It requires a talent for putting ideas into action and that’s a gift David is willing to share.

David Giertz Reveals How He Implements His Ideas

While the initial ideas may come from David, he says he can’t fully take credit for bringing any of them to life. He adds that the real trick is getting a diverse group of people together and asking them for their input. As they adopt the idea as their own and look for ways to improve upon it, the possibility of making it happen becomes an inevitability. Mr. Giertz says the key to exploiting the potential of any idea is in letting an entire team take ownership of the concept.

One such idea was born out of a necessity to retain employees. David recalled that he wss losing an unusually high number of employees, but discovered that their pay wasn’t the reason in most cases. He recalled that employees weren’t feeling valued and this led to a general feeling of dissatisfaction with the company. Giertz says he wanted to address this in a positive way, so the trend would resolve itself.

The idea he put into action was to give employees greater access to senior executives. Those employees performing in the top 20% were chosen to network with senior executives in workshops. The event was conducted twice per year, giving every employee the opportunity to improve and qualify for the opportunity. As a result, overall performance improved and employees felt more involved in the organization, which improved morale.

A Word on Being Productive

Being a successful executive means David Giertz can get bogged down with administrative tasks. As a result, his own productivity can suffer, unless he makes conscious changes in his routine. One way he controls the flow of his day is by limiting the time he spends responding to emails. David says he can easily get lost in a mountain of email, if he’s not careful.

To avoid this, Mr. Giertz dedicates one chunk of each day to answering emails. He’ll address as much as he can within that time frame, but, once his self-appointed time limit expires, he’s done. The rest will have to wait for the next day. By doing this, David can dedicate more of his day to implementing his latest ideas and brainstorming with his team.

Raising the Bar for Community Outreach at Aloha Construction

As consumer confidence has increased over the past 12 months, homeowners plan for home improvement projects, but how does the property owner find a reputable contractor? A+ rated by the Better Business Bureau, Aloha Construction in Lake Zurich is making that decision easier for Chicago area residents.

Operated by Dave and Wally Farbaky since 2008, Aloha Construction is a general contractor, skilled in all phases of exterior improvements. Moreover, chances are, a neighbor has done business with the Farbakys, who have replaced or repaired an estimated 20,000 roofs.

Earning and maintaining an A+ rating from the BBB requires a daily commitment to satisfying customers from the entire Aloha Construction team. Rewarded for that commitment, the company received the BBB’s 2017 Torch Award for Ethics. The Torch Award is presented annually to organizations who demonstrate the highest standards of ethics in their business practices. Qualifications for the Torch Award are stringent with a company having to demonstrate ethical practices towards customers, employees, and the communities in which the company operates.

The Farbaky’s ethical leadership sets the example for their entire organization, providing a rallying point for every employee. Notwithstanding, community involvement is essential to a company’s reputation, to an owner’s civic standing; accordingly, Aloha Construction has always donated its time and effort to charitable activities, notably youth sports sponsorships, Boys and Girls Clubs of Bloomington and Camp One Step for children with cancer. In 2016, Dave Farbaky increased the company’s outreach with the formation of the Dave Farbaky Foundation funding ‘random acts of kindness’ for children. A favorite event is a toy shopping spree where children have 60 seconds to grab toys and games. Dave’s hope is that the children have fun themselves, eventually motivated to perform random acts of kindness for others.

Ethical treatment of customers and employees is standard practice at Aloha Construction, investing in your local community is going the extra mile for Dave Farbaky.
