  • Litecoin (LTC-USD) is gearing up for its new update on Thursday, May 19
  • MimbleWimble (MWEB) upgrade will turn Litecoin crypto into a more fungible private currency
  • Privacy parts like Monero (XMR-USD) and Zcash (ZEC-USD) have been hot investments in recent weeks

The Litecoin crypto is ready for one of its biggest updates yet. After much delay and much hype, the developers say they are ready to unveil the Upgrade from MimbleWimble. This news sees Litecoin entering a crypto sub-industry that has performed well recently. As a result, investors may soon witness an LTC boom.

After a rough few weeks, it looks like investors are finally turning their attention to network growth. Projects are starting to get back on track with their upgrades – and Litecoin is no exception. In fact, investors have been following its new upgrade in particular for quite some time.

The rollout of MWEB will see Litecoin transform more into a privacy coin. Essentially, MimbleWimble uses a number of different cryptographic protocols intended to hide the sender and receiver of a given transaction. Essentially, this turns the LTC coin into a fungible currency.

Think of non-fungible cryptos like snowflakes; each has a unique pattern, which means two snowflakes can be easily distinguished from each other. Fungible tokens do not have distinct characteristics to differentiate one coin from another. This makes it nearly impossible to track the movement of specific funds, allowing for greater privacy for the end user.

This privacy factor is perhaps the most exciting part of the MimbleWimble upgrade. However, there is another important element in the upgrade: on-chain security. The MimbleWimble protocol uses discrete logarithms, which are very difficult to solve. This will help make the Litecoin chain more secure.

Litecoin Crypto Becomes Fungible and Joins Privacy Coins

With a estimated release May 19, investors are on the verge of the biggest crypto catalyst Litecoin of the year so far. MimbleWimble has been in development for over two years now, making it one of the biggest projects for LTC developers.

By adding the privacy factor to LTC, the coin will join a booming privacy coin market. Indeed, coins like Monero and Zcash – both of which prioritize untraceable transactions – are trading at exceptionally high volumes. Until last week, these two coins have seen some of the strongest gains in the market this year.

There is, however, a problem with the MWEB upgrade, which may divide investors. Litecoin Founder Charlie Lee Says MWEB Upgrade Will Be optional for platforms. “Exchanges, for example, wouldn’t have to work with the MWEB side of things, they can just work with the transparent Litecoin blockchain itself,” says Lee.

Some users like this news because it means criminals will have a harder time moving assets through the LTC chain than other privacy chains. However, privacy die-hards might have reservations about using a string that isn’t entirely opaque.

As investors wait for the MWEB upgrade to take shape, the Litecoin crypto continues to recover from the recent market decline. Prices are down 4% for 24 hours.

  • by Terra (LUNA USD) LUNA crypto gains for the first time in over a week
  • The very slight recovery of the coin is based on the recent hard fork proposal by founder Do Kwon
  • Voting on the proposal will take place on May 18, though many outspoken Terra members suggest that approval will be a difficult feat.

The Terra developers are trying to get the network back on its feet. Of course, trying to appease thousands of angry users and developers is quite difficult. With much to do to get LUNA crypto prices back in order, founder Do Kwon is looking to split the Terra chain into two separate networks. But is this the best solution? Many say no, and Kwon only has a few days to convince them otherwise.

The Terra network was one of the largest crypto projects in the world, with LUNA being the ninth most popular coin by market capitalization. TerraUSD (UST-USD), the stable counterpart of LUNA, was the fifteenth largest. However, both of these cryptos suffered a quick setback last week when UST lost its pegged value of $1 and was unable to recover it. The algorithm underlying the algorithmic stablecoin was unable to stabilize prices and ended up driving LUNA prices down to a fraction of a penny.

This event is a shining example of why the masses are yet to fully embrace crypto. Indeed, even the largest projects on the planet are not immune to disaster. As a result, less risk-tolerant investors are unwilling to get involved in crypto investing. On the other side of the spectrum, investors brimming with hubris are getting a wake-up call from the crash, some of whom have lost thousands of dollars to LUNA investments, or worse.

LUNA Crypto: Will Investors Prepare to Make Kwon’s Hard Fork Proposal?

In the aftermath of the crash, Do Kwon and the Terra team desperately search for ways to rebuild the network. This led Kwon to adopt several different community proposals from users contributing their own ideas. Now Kwon is releasing his own proposal to save the LUNA crypto. Users will have their chance to vote on the proposal tomorrow.

Scheduled for a vote on May 18, the “Terra 2 Ecosystem Recovery Plan” is Do Kwon’s plan to massively overhaul the Terra ecosystem. Described by Kwon as a “living document”, the plan is fluid. This means that the proposal is subject to change depending on the wishes and needs of Terra users and developers.

The biggest change Kwon hopes to bring to the network with the plan is a hard fork. By forking the Terra channel, he hopes to create two networks catering to two different demographics, Terra Classic and Terra 2.0. Terra 2.0 is for developers. This will be the new home of crypto LUNA, and it will forgo algorithmic stablecoins. Terra Classic is therefore intended to cater more to end users who used Terra before. This one, however, will come with a new coin, LUNC.

As the vote quickly approaches, it seems users are resisting Kwon’s proposal. A preliminary vote on the hard fork is overwhelmingly against the proposal. Over 3,500 LUNA holders have voted in this poll at the time of writing, with 91% against a hard fork.

  • Ripple (XRP-USD) has been involved in a lawsuit with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) since late 2020
  • A court date later this week could provide a big catalyst for investors.
  • The XRP token has remained very volatile in recent days for these reasons, as well as general volatility in the crypto industry

Source: Alexei Ivanov / Shutterstock.com

It’s been a pretty bumpy ride lately for the world sixth largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Ripple (XRP-USD). Indeed, the crypto has fluctuated wildly over the past week, reaching above 53 cents and below 35 cents.

Much of this volatility is related to the ongoing lawsuit between the SEC and XRP’s parent company, Ripple. Ripple executives participated in an investigation regarding alleged unregistered securities offerings. This lawsuit dates back to 2020.

However, as the saga continues and further proceedings take place, investors are rightly integrating more uncertainty into the valuation of this token. Last week, investors in the crypto XRP saw an episode of downward selling pressure prompted by Friday’s testimony from Ripple regarding documents from former SEC official William Hinman. The SEC alleges that these documents are protected by solicitor-client privilege.

That brings us to May 18. This is the next date when the SEC will respond to Ripple’s comments on this matter. Much of the SEC’s case against Ripple hinges on these communications, which have sparked much speculation among investors.

Let’s see why this could be a big problem in the future.

Why May 18 is an Important Date for XRP Crypto

Ripple’s ongoing lawsuit with the SEC is just one of many factors that XRP investors are currently considering. Indeed, massive price volatility resulting from market-altering events is a major concern for most investors.

A series of macro factors that pushed high-risk assets higher are now reversing. Less cheap capital means less fictitious money for speculators. For this sector, it is a falling tide that lowers all the boats.

Given the size of XRP, which has a current market capitalization of over $20 billion, the fluctuations we have seen this week represent billions of dollars of market capitalization added or subtracted almost daily. Interestingly, XRP is just one of many cryptocurrencies that have seen outsized volatility lately.

That said, until the end of this ongoing lawsuit, I foresee more volatility on the horizon. As a result, XRP is not a token that currently fits my risk profile.

Time is… quite important. Everything takes time, from creating games to playing games. A workday can feel a whole lot longer when you’re waiting to get home to play your favorite game. But time can also confine you. Some things have to be done within a certain time frame, and sometimes that just isn’t possible.

RELATED: These Aesthetic Management Games Ensure Time is Well Spent

But games, they love to play with that. Not just time itself, but the act of planning around it. Do it that day, maximize your wins and minimize losses. Or sometimes it’s just an incentive for you to celebrate certain days a little differently than normal. Sometimes these calendars might just be what actually exists, or maybe it’s something entirely unique to this world.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 Civilization 6

The Civilization series is older, one of the most beloved 4X games. Assuming the role of a world leader, you seek victory in many ways, be it a race to the stars or a march to death. But just as important as your victory is how the world grows around you.

In Civ 6, as in any Civ game, eras and centuries pass with each round. But the Rise and Fall expansion introduced timelines – little ways to record your civilizations’ achievements across the millennia, from humble beginnings to sprawling metropolis. Seeing the years go by like this feels like there’s a real story at play, that time has witnessed all of your growth.

7 Return of Lightning: Final Fantasy XIII

If there’s one thing Final Fantasy can be praised for, it would be its constant drive to change. No entry is quite alike, even though they borrow many aspects from previous entries. Lightning Returns is one of the greatest examples of the show’s flexibility. Not only is it different from previous Final Fantasy games, it doesn’t even look like its two direct predecessors. Time is a major factor here.

RELATED: Things We Wish We Knew Before We Started Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13

Lightning is the Savior, saving every soul one at a time in a world that is rapidly coming to an end. It’s a daunting task, and many quests take place over several days or at different times, so you can’t blitz everything either, and traveling from place to place takes precious moments. It takes careful planning, and you probably won’t save everyone.

When it comes to high fantasy in gaming, The Elder Scrolls is pretty unmatched. There are many amazing fantasy games, new and old, but there is nothing like the lived-in Elder Scrolls lore. It has a unique calendar system, with unique months and days of the week.

The Elder Scrolls has always had these events, and many lore items in the world will tell you about them and their exact dates, though the games themselves rarely celebrate the events. That said, it’s wonderful to feel your time in the world scrolling in real time, current era year and all.

5 animal crossing

Animal Crossing is your home away from home. You’re the new resident of the town (or island) and it’s up to you to fit in, or even become mayor and help build the town. But after that, it’s really just you living another life. But a big part of that is the fact that in Animal Crossing, time moves forward in real time.

RELATED: Games With The Most Vibrant Fauna

So Animal Crossing uses the same calendar as our world. When you celebrate your birthday in reality, the residents will also be there to throw you a party. And when it’s too late, the stores will close and people will go home for the day. Its calendar is as important as a real one, maybe more if you really love your residents.

4 Fire Emblem: Three Houses

All fans of turn-based strategy games will know Fire Emblem. Its history in the West is relatively brief, but in Japan it lasted much longer. But Three Houses represented the series’ return to home consoles and brought many changes, a big part of which being time management.

Three Houses has its own schedule. As Byleth, you get a week of teaching and a free day to do whatever you want, but with limited time. Historical events and anniversaries are also celebrated, which makes each month feel like it has a presence in world history, but actual calendars allow you to plan your whole month in advance, rather than week to week.

3 Stardew Valley

There are so many amazing indie games that are breaking new ground in the industry in amazing ways, but Stardew Valley has carved out its own little niche. Rather than drastically changing the farming sims, it just went one step further, giving you a town of people to care about and a farm to maintain.

RELATED: Best Farming Simulator Games For Beginners

Every month of the year hosts town events and birthdays. But the game doesn’t go out of its way to remind you of that, either. You can celebrate or ignore whatever you want, and there’s no real pressure either. Just make sure your crops are ready before winter.

2 The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

The Legend of Zelda is a renowned series that almost everyone has heard of, and Majora’s Mask is indeed a beloved entry in the series despite its thematic and gameplay departures from Ocarina of Time. But when it comes to time-wasting games, Majora’s Mask is a must-have entry.

You have three days. It’s so simple. If you don’t do everything, the world dies and you go back to the first stage or rewind yourself. But it’s almost like a puzzle. Some events will only occur on certain days, but you may need something from day three to activate something on day one. It takes careful time management to solve everything, all running in real time, but it’s a wonderful and tense experience.

1 personas 5

Persona as a series has gone through many changes, primarily starting with Persona 3, but the fifth entry is by far the most famous. P3 has made time a major factor, taking place throughout the actual school year with your free time structured around it. School holidays give you more free time, but exam days take longer.

It’s fun to see a real-life calendar incorporated in this way, but it forces you to think in as methodical a way as the average teenager probably wouldn’t. Are you really turning down a day with your friends to cook curry and do laundry? But the main loop of how it all connects is great, especially since you have to take it all in one day at a time.

Thought of the week: A change in circumstances is rarely as important as a change in attitude. If you change your thoughts, you will most certainly change your situation.

You like homemade cakes, pies, cookies, sweets, etc. and know at the same time that you help young people raise funds for their Summer Mission trip? If you answered “yes,” you’ll want to come to UM Wesley Chapel this Sunday, May 15 at 2 p.m. to buy some of the best treats. At 3 p.m., Danny Cotton will auction off some of the MOST sought-after cakes and pies. All proceeds will benefit the youth of Bethesda UM Church as well as the youth of Wesley Chapel.

We were so shocked and deeply saddened when we learned of Naomi Judd’s tragic passing. Our deepest condolences go to her husband Larry Strickland, her daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, and her grandchildren, Gracie and Elijah. A private memorial service was held last Saturday. Sympathy is also extended to his friends in the music industry as well as everyone else.

If you’re planning your vacation out West this summer, I urge you to stop by KOA Campground in Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. This is where our children are, 2Country4Nashville. They occur in and around there until November. They broadcast live every Monday and Wednesday from the location there. From all indications, they are having a great time. (You can see Devil’s Tower within walking distance.)

This Saturday, May 14 is the date of the Franklin Rodeo Parade. It will start at noon from Highway 96 west. If you, your business, church or other organization would like to participate in the parade, you can go online at www.FranklinRodeo.com. record. It’s FREE to be in the queue. The rodeo will be held May 19, 20 and 21 at Williamson County Ag Expo Park beginning each evening at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Members of Bethesda Masonic Lodge take control of Boston Butts for Friday, May 27. You can order them from any member of the Lodge or call Wesley Robinson at 615-439-0171. They’re only $40 and you can pick them up after 2 p.m. on the 27th at the Lodge on Bethesda/Duplex Road. (This would be great for you to have for your Memorial Day picnic.)

Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 21 for “Music On THE Creek” at the Flat Creek Community Center Pavilion. You can enjoy great music and dancing with the Williamson County Bluegrass Band. Admission is FREE, but they will “pass the hat” for the group. They will have hot dogs, chili, cold drinks and homemade desserts to buy. The center is located at 6997 Giles Hill Road, College Grove.

I realized that I forgot to wish a happy birthday to our daughter, LeAnne Ulmer, and my little niece, Carrie LeAnne Johnson Hood. They both celebrated this Monday, May 9. We wish them many more to come.

Congratulations to ALL of our high school and college graduates. We wish you the best as you venture into the next phase of your life. (It seems that only yesterday I congratulated the parents on the birth of these children.

Congratulations to Carole Grooms and Mark Garey who recently received a Tennessee Bandmasters Sweepstakes Award, on behalf of the Freedom Middle School Band for the 13th time. (Doesn’t that tell you how AMAZING they are?)

At the Tennessee Music Teachers Convention in Nashville. Congratulations, Carole and Marc! I am so happy to say that I have worked with all of you at FSSD.

The Williamson County Public Library is preparing to “launch” its summer reading program. It will start from Thursday May 19 to Saturday July 30. A family event will be held on Saturday, May 21 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with outdoor lawn games by Games to Go

Nashville, food trucks, etc. This program offers reading opportunities for all ages and each participant can read for 20 hours to win a FREE book. Call the library at 615-595-1244 for more information or to register.

It seems like only yesterday I was asking you to help me celebrate the 90th birthday of my sister, Anita Gillespie, but it’s actually been a year. Now I ask you once again to help me “shower” it with cards on the 91st, that is, on May 28. (I knew if I waited, you wouldn’t have time to mail her a card).

If you don’t have his address call me at 615-308-8205 and I’ll be happy to give it to you. No, she doesn’t spin the wheels of her cart, but she still gets down on the floor, on her exercise mat, and does her exercises daily. Thank you in advance. I would love to see her get at least 91.

I hope you have marked your calendar for May 28th as it is the date of the FIRST Ice Cream Social. It will be held at Belleview CP Church located on Murfreesboro Road East. They will start serving at 5 p.m. You can enjoy grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, with toppings, fries, as well as homemade ice cream and pastries. They will have a silent auction starting at 6 p.m. with Danny Cotton as auctioneer.

We continue to receive requests for prayers for the sick, homebound, people living with support services, as well as nursing homes.

To the family of Henry Isenberg, former teacher at Page High, Bob Canaday, Jr., Ann Carroll, Dot Cagle, Minnie Pearl Veach, Colleen Campbell and others I don’t know, our prayers are with you.

Current regulations state that non-concession manufacturers are allowed to use seven engines during the season, while concession brands can use nine.

However, this rule was written when the calendar included fewer than 20 races, with the 2022 calendar expected to include 21 grands prix.

As a result, with immediate effect, an eighth engine has been added to all non-concession builders’ allocation which can only be used in race 19 and beyond, while concession brands have been given a 10th.

The fully updated regulations read: “Currently, MotoGP regulations allow manufacturers in the MotoGP class to use a maximum of seven engines during the season (nine engines for manufacturers with concessions).

“This regulation was established when the calendar included less than 20 races.

“Because the 2022 calendar foresees 21 races, it was agreed to allow the use of an additional engine provided that there are ultimately 19 races or more.

“The additional engine can only be used for the 19th race or the following races.

“The regulations have been updated as follows: Less than 21 races published on the official calendar which is published by the FIM before the start of the first race: Manufacturers will have a maximum engine allocation of seven engines (nine for manufacturers with concessions).

“21 or 22 races published on the calendar published by the FIM before the start of the first race: manufacturers will have a maximum allocation of eight engines (10 for manufacturers with concessions).

“The use of this eighth (or 10th) engine will only be authorized from the 19th event.”

From 2023, no manufacturer will abide by concession rules after Aprilia has won enough podium finishes in the past year to lose the benefits it has enjoyed since 2015.

In anticipation of the loss of concessions, Aprilia is already running one less engine as if it doesn’t exist in its allocation to better prepare reliability for 2023.

Although officially losing dealership status, Aprilia will still have a 10-engine allocation for this year under the new rule change.

The season is set to run for 21 races, but the Finnish Grand Prix in July remains an unknown for now, with a delegation from Dorna Sports due to visit the new KymiRing to inspect it next week.

Mark your calendars! Malta’s first ever AgriFair showcases all things local https://flworfound.org/mark-your-calendars-maltas-first-ever-agrifair-showcases-all-things-local/ Thu, 12 May 2022 10:19:00 +0000 https://flworfound.org/mark-your-calendars-maltas-first-ever-agrifair-showcases-all-things-local/ Despite our nation’s small size, Malta has such a strong agricultural industry that an endless array of products that we use daily can be supplied by local means.

Despite our nation’s small size, Malta has such a strong agricultural industry that an endless array of products that we use daily can be supplied by local means.

Given the hard work that farmers, fishermen and all other industry players do on a daily basis, it is high time that this sector of the Maltese economy received the recognition it deserves.

This is why, for the first time ever, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights (MAFA) will host Malta AgriFair.

This massive event is taking place this month, and trust us when we say you won’t want to miss it…

To begin with, Malta AgriFair 2022 will highlight local products, machinery, systems and technological developments in the agriculture and fisheries sectors.

This should be done through the involvement of key stakeholders in the aforementioned areas – we are talking about SMEs, large organizations and everything in between.

Through this, the fair will provide a platform for both the local farming community and growers to inform the general public about the industries products and services.

Sounds interesting, right?

Whether you attend AgriFair as a member of the agriculture and fishing industries or simply as a spectator, you can be assured that there will be plenty to take in.

The huge list of exhibitors currently includes companies, organizations and institutes like Malta Sunripe, Mgarr Farmers Cooperative Society, Water Services Corporation, Malta Food Agency, KPH Group and ABACO Group – and this is only scratch the surface!

Here’s a taste of what you can get out of a visit to this event…

Participants are prepared to become more familiar with the concept of “farm to fork”, as the food chain system of production, harvesting, processing, distribution and consumption of food will be demonstrated in a very visual, innovative and interactive way.

But wait, there’s more! The Malta AgriFair is much more than just a theoretical apprenticeship – so much so that it will host a fully-fledged live animal section where Maltese breeds of different farm animals will be showcased.

Speaking of farm animals, the fair will host two farm animal competitions: a live cow competition May 21 at 6 p.m. and a live sheep and goat competitions May 22 at 10:30 a.m.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to learn about Malta’s thriving fishing industry. One of the fair’s most unique attractions, for example, will see wooden models of five different species of fish found in the Maltese seas hanging from the roof of the site.

The Aquaculture Branch, an exhibitor at AgriFair, will also be showcasing various live fish in a range of aquariums.

Apart from that, a different area will be dedicated to agriculture, with demonstration fields showcasing different crops, trees and vines.

One last thing – among the many other interesting demonstrations that will be put on, a large honeycomb structure will also be on display to educate attendees about the Maltese bee. Sweet!

If you plan to attend AgriFair with your children, know that there will not be one, but of them children’s areas.

And if all that walking and learning makes you feel peckish, you can always refuel at the fair’s restaurant or food stalls, which will serve Maltese food.

Thinking of attending?

The Malta AgriFair 2022 will take place at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Center (MFCC) in Ta’ Qali from Friday 20 May to Sunday 22 May. The opening hours for the three days of the fair are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

A standard ticket for this event (for people aged 12-59) will only cost you €3, while children under 12 and seniors (60+) can enter for free.
